KM scam?

Has anybody been contacted by KM campgrounds to buy their membership? After I bought my coach, they gave me calls and sent me postcards to say I've won a membership but I would have to pay $345 annual dues. This would get me $10 per night fees at their campgrounds or at Coast to Coast campgrounds. I asked the agent for a website that lists the campgrounds but she said there isn't one because there are too many. Red flag alert! The only way to get a list is to meet in person to receive their certificate. Red flag!

Personally never heard of them.

Given the answer you got, I never will. My advice "Run".

K/M Resorts KM Resorts | Beautiful Resort Locations in Washington's
has eight resorts in Washington and if you buy into the correct membership I believe another two in Oregon. Like all membership campgrounds your "free" membership will probably only include one campground and you will need to take the tour and hear the spiel on a great offer to upgrade to all the parks in their system. We are not K/M members but do use their parks under a reciprocal system with our membership in another park system which allows us to stay for free for up to 7 days twice a year. We have found their parks to be nice. Used memberships are available on Craig's list for pennies on the dollar compared to new costs. If you take the tour be aware that you cannot buy a used membership for two years.

I did a little more research, they are a local (state WA & Canada). They are a timeshare out fit.

Thanks. I think I'll research a little more about their claim that you can stay at Coast to Coast campgrounds for $10 a night. But I suspect there are some restrictions and catches with that too.
Thanks again!

If its anything like a timeshare you will pay for life and then your estate(kids) will pay......And good luck trying to unload it. Like a timeshare it would be nearly impossible.
