Someplace to call home ?

We are going to Port Susan Camping Club north of Everet, WA. this weekend to look over buying a membership.
Have any of you been there or done that ?
The land is leased from an indian tribe and you can only stay on a site for 180 days then you have to remove yourself, quite a few of the residences buy two lots next to eachother and just move from one lot to the other for the next 180 days, or they travel that time until they are allowed back.
The land is leased, not purchased, and there are some that look great and some look like a parking space so we are going up to see whats what.
If you have had an encounter with this type of deal, jump on and give me your feed back.

Some other RV lots are in this sort of arrangement.
JMHO.Take any agreement and have it read by a lawyer, before you sign.
I would not consider any lease agreement that did not have a term that would far outlive me. 30+ years. And the amount of the lease, and maintenance fees, and all allowable increases must be written into the lease.
ON a cautionary note; a local tribe had a set up like this and had a few people sign up before, it was discovered that the agreement did not guarantee the delivery of water and power, both controlled by the native band. The rate for water and power was not controlled, in the lease, the band could cut off your water and power on a whim, and the government had no control on native land to help. Not a great deal.
There are true free hold RV lots out there, I'd look for those first.

Never hurts to look. My advice is to go look at it and listen to the hard sell.

Then go back home and think about it for a week.

Report back here before you buy.

Myself....I'd never ever join any of those types of RV parks.

Myself I would never have joined one of these parks in the past,but medical issues have about drained our finanaces and here we sit with a very expensive toy, which forbids us from selling and moving into an apartment. I love parking in the woods instead of a parking lot.

Remember, you are leasing Tribal Lands. The rules of engagement are subject to change at the will of the tribe. While the property is attached to the US, it is on soverign land and subject to their interpertation of what is right. We looked at buying on the Tulalip reservation but decided against it because we would not own the land under our building. Over the years that have been disagreements between Tribal Counsul and property owners concerning property rights. The last decision I heard was that the shore line up past high tide now belongs to the tribe, not the owner. Also, you must get a permit to repair your own dock, and they weren't issuing repair permits.

What kind of membership and how much $$? I bought a m'ship to RPI and Coast. We have escaped AZ every summer for 10 years and these m'ships have paid for themselves 2-3X over. They were resales from a camp in Montana. Conestoga Campground. This place is about 50Miles from nowhere between 3 mountain ranges. If you like peaceful, this is it. The owners are gr8.

Anyway, there are others available but my experience w/RPI and C2C is they have inexpensive camping in most every area of the country. Granted these m'ships are not for everyone but IMHO This one has saved us $$.
