Thanks for all the feedback. We will join and try it for this year and see how much we use it and if the savings are there. We will be heading out to the West Coast and making many stops along the way so I suspect it will help out.

If you just use it twice, in many cases, you will get a full return on your investment.

Since no one else has offered, use my membership number as a reference: 477540

I think you will benefit from the membership. As stated, check their web site on the places you want to visit. Read any restrictions. Go for it.

We have a lifetime membership that has paid for itself in a short period of time. We always look for PPA parks when we are traveling.

Passport America pays for itself many times over for us every year! We use that and Good Sam.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

A little research into campgrounds in the area you are planning to visit, as well as along the way, will go a long way in determining whether PA is a good fit for you or not.

PA is probably not going to help a weekend warrior much, since many restrictions are weekend related, but for someone full-timing and travelling, I can see where the cost of the membership can be recovered very quickly.

I first bought a 3 year membership for PA before my last tour of FL, and 2 of the campgrounds I stayed during those 2 weeks I saved wayyyyyy more than it cost me and had over 2.5 years left.

That does indeed happen if you can hit one of the few campgrounds that allow unrestricted use of PA. Most limit to one or two nights though so as you noted for a weekend/occasional vacation traveler such a quick payback is far from certain.

Still, due to the low membership fee (and only due to the low membership fee) I think that most will find PA a good investment. You may or may not save scads of money but even at worst you probably won't end up in the hole.
