For $50 I would expect a pretty good RV resort experience. Newer CG with a large pool...workout room and club house with pool tables....7 Feathers is a CG I am happy to pay $40. DW and I take 4 weeks in August for our holiday and we plan our getaway using RVparkreviews. Lifes too short when your not yet retired..LOL

We are beginning to get used to paying $40-$48 for a 50A full hook-up site in a decent place. Not liking it, mind you, but getting used to it. Club houses and such we don't pay much attention to, though, and we don't need entertainment for kids either.

Prices vary a lot by region. Areas like Florida that have a year-around season can charge a lot less than Maine, which pretty much just two months/year to make expenses and a living for the owner and staff.

You are close to 7 Feathers so go take a look. Indoor pool and hot tub, fitness room,free use of computers. You park on level concrete. Excellent power pedestal and water hook up, Wifi, cable tv. Fast shuttle to the casino. If you join the players club, you can then get a discount at the gas station. Very pleasant staff

I do not mind paying the 40 bux to stay here http://www.sevenfeathersrvresort.com/index.html

For $50 a night I expect clean linens laundered by someone else, little shampoos and soaps and moisturizers in the bathroom, HBO on TV and continental breakfast in the lobby in the morning.

If I was to pay $50 a night, I would expect a quiet space in a premium park, all amenities included, a nice clubhouse, a prime rib dinner for my entourage and a free top-off of my fuel tank.

And I'll add that a back rub would be nice.

Good clean 50, 30 and 20 amp service, steady water pressure, sewer, free wifi, free cable, paved roads, a concrete patio, a phone hook up at each site and the seventh night free. Executive golf course, two heated pools and a lake with paddleboats, two restaurants/pubs, tennis, ping pong, hiking trails, bocce and golf cart rentals, work out room, two pool tables and planned activities every day.

That's what $50 bucks can buy!

If you are near a big event or popular attraction (the old supply and demand thing) you can either pay the going rate, drive to the place from a good distance (cha-ching) or Wal-Dock.
Simple!

I dont let the value of a couple of happy meals get in my way.
Just sayin.....

I would never pay that! Lots of money for the rig and gas to get there. I just want a spot and hookups. The owners should make a good profit, but if we were willing to pay $100 they would want $110.

Day 4: As per previous posted subject I was notified today there will be a $10. per day for using the 50 amp service and it's due befor I leave. (Suprise ) I ain't going to pay it!!!! been here 4 days, no nothing, nothing to do but watch the rain, club house closed because they did not want to mop the mud that was being tracked in.
Leaving in the morning for greener pastures-been spending most of my days posting reviews about the place on a number of sites.

I feel your pain as we have spent our share of time in CG's where we felt exploited. Good luck on the not paying idea....just hope you don't cause yourself a world of trouble over $40!

I guess we have been exploited more than once despite our care in choice of campgrounds. We have even seen Good SAMs ratings that we thought were inflated. The previous advice on Internet reviews will greatly reduce the risks, but in spite of all the risk reduction tactics, we are sometimes disappointed with what we find. As we travel we spend some time at each location doing recon for next year's trip. We keep good notes and if we are planning on more than a night or two, we use only campgrounds that we have seen on our recons. The great thing about camping is that we can always vote with our ignition switch.
