Thank you all for your responses. I also got the $39. mailer from Good Sam so I think I will give it a try if only for Terribles in Pahrump. I spend $300 on a tankful of fuel and I'm making a big deal about $39. Makes no sense!!!

CampClubUSA. I picked one campground at random, from the book, near our married children in Wisconsin as an example: Happy Acres Kampground. Restrictions: Discount not available on holidays or Friday and Saturday. Maximum stay is 3 days at reduced rate. Joe

That sounds just like what a smart campground owner would do. If not for the restrictions we wouldn't be able to get the discounts on days when the likelihood is that the campground would not be full. We just have to work around them and save money when it is a win win situation for both campground owner and camper.

Staying only one night at each place when traveling during the week makes it a good deal.

Can I give my 2 cents on Terribles? We live in Las Vegas. Pahrump is just an hour away. The best campground in Pahrump (and rated nationwide) is Terribles. We like to park right on the lakeshore and there are plenty of spaces on the shore. I understand you can fish in the lake but my wife likes to feed the ducks.

It's a great park...

As far as Camp Club. I am a member of Passport and Happy Camper. I am toying with CC. We will be joining the full time ranks in the not to distant future. From my reading it appears CC has many restrictions. And being a full timer we will be camp EVERY night not just the ones they wish to give a discount on... that being said, I think I'll give them a year to two and see if they are worth it.

If you are a full timer, it may work out, but for me I didn't keep it more than the first year. I am not a fulltimer and every time I looked at a campground in the area I was travelling, it was either too far off or there were too many restrictions. Most of the discounts were for weekdays and non holidays.

We have been traveling fulltime for 5 of the past 6 years. We have both PA & CC. We have found that PA has more parks to choose from and therefore use that more than CC. You do have watch the restrictions very closely with both. We probably won't renew our CC since we haven't used it that much. There is a lot of overlap between the two.

As pointed out, you only have to use either one 2 or 3 times before they have paid for themselves.

Good luck

I have checked out the total number of CG's in each program. I have compared which programs overlap with one another. I have checked as to where the majority of the program's CG's were.

My original year of full timing I had Passport America and Happy Camper. I did not use HC even once.

You can not beat "Passport America." Hands down they are the best except of course for "Golden Age Pass" now called Senior Pass.

I have CampClub and I use it only for Terribles in Pahrump... I have Thousand Trails Elite so I can stay here in Vegas for free.. but I much rather drive to Pahrump.
