Has anyone tried Camp Club USA

How does Camp Club USA work ? Do most RV parks allow only one night at 50% off. Are the parks few and far between ? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Have you considered Passport America? Check their web site for details. I'm happy with their program. I usually save enough $'s on a trip to for at least meals and some fuel. Some dates are not available in Fl. Jan-April. Just a thought.
Safe Travels.

I have Camp Club USA and yes it kinda works.... Most places you can stay 2 or 3 nights at 50% off, a few are unlimited, BUT and it's a big BUT... the DATE RESTRICTION'S are terrible at most places... You can use it ONLY in their OFF SEASON.

I keep it only for one camp ground... Terrible's Casino & RV Park in Pahrump, NV. It's good anytime there.

We've been using it for a year now, it's not too bad. You make your dues up by the first or second time you us it. The more popular the destination the more restrictions it seems. We always seem to be able to find something. We’re full timers and travel a lot when not work camping, but we can usually find a spot with CC.

It is certainly worth the $50 fee. We did a four month trip around the country last year and used the book to choose the places we stayed. There are restrictions, so maybe you make different choices. It was kind of fun ending up in different areas than we might have chosen by other methods. I would recommend.

Rick Long, How is Terribles,? we have been considering a trip up there just for something to do when we don't have a longer trip planned.

Thank you all for your input. I did get on their web site and looked to see what RV parks were on there and it looks like it could work. I got a mailer that gives Good Sam members a $39. membership. Maybe I'm being too cheap and should pop for the $39. and give it a try.

We have it and are about to renew it again. It usually pays for itself the first time we use it. We don't camp at Myrtle Beach in the summer,but go in off season. Our youngest daughter lives there and we stop off for a couple of days at Pirateland on our way home from Florida the first of the year. Half price rates for 2 days is nice,but we usually stay a little longer so I can see the grandkids. There really aren't a lot of places you can use it in Florida for extended periods of time anyway,but we have used it from Me. to Fl. and inbetween.
Oh,in addition to their book they also have a website with which campgrounds have it and they are adding new ones all the time. So if you do have it,be sure to check out their website before setting out on a trip.

We've had our membership for two years and it has more than paid for itself, however we do a lot of our driving during the off season. As others have said a lot of the parks have summer block out dates.

Last year, I randomly compared Passport America campground listings to those listed by Camp Club USA. Many of the same ones were listed by both. But PA had more selections overall than CCU. This may change over time as CCU gets more established. But for now, PA is a better value to us.

We have both and end up using PPA the most but there is no reason to not have both if you camp a lot. We have used them about 100 times and my experience is that you find about the same quality level on the cub parks as parks in general. The restrictions are what makes the whole program work. A campground owner would be stupid to give a discount on a time when they would otherwise be full. The whole program is to get something out of sites that would otherwise be empty. I think good business people understand this and it becomes a win win situation for owner and caper. PPA has about 1500 campgrounds and Camp Club has about 800 and there is a lot of overlap. We usually call first. We use the two big books to check them out also. The Woodall ratings will tell the tale. Just remember if it wasn’t for the restrictions, there would be no discounts.

We've had Passport America for several years, last year also had Camp Club USA. We dropped it after 1 year, we thought PA had more parks and is a better value.

Chuck 1935,

I see Rick hasn't responded about Terrible's, so until he does I will jump in. Terrible's Lakeside in Pahrump is a great CG. We spent two months there November to January. Very nice small and homey casino with a good restaurant adjacent to the CG. Check with them about specials before booking. Make sure, if you go there, to get a players card and swipe it every day. Great stuff.

We were there over New Years, really liked the place. Clean and the casino and resturant are easy to get to from your campsite. If you get the players card you can swipe it everyday and maybe get 2 for 1 meals or buffet.

I just got the mailer from good sam and it guarantees you to save 3 times the $39.00 during the first year or you get a full refund.

That's what I call risk free.
