OK they have 18 parks and give a small discount on PA and HH, after you join escapees. I may be interested in the mail service.

Check out the YouTube channel, Next Exit. They bought a TT membership for $4000 and something like $600 a year dues and stay in every campground they are at for free unless they upgrade to 50 amps which is an extra $3. If you do the math at $35 a night the $4600 a year will pay for itself in the first 131 days or 4.3 months. I've never been a big fan of camping memberships but after watching a number of his videos I'm kind of re-thinking my position. this Next Exit guy is really happy with it.

That $4000 is once and done, too. After that you pay only the annual dues of (this year) just under $575.

I have been following this YouTube channel as well. Not only do they give lots of info on such things, they give their actual budget numbers for the last year and a half. This is helpful to newbies trying to figure stuff out, especially budgets. We have bought the passport America pass two winters in a row. At 44 dollars, it only takes a few nights to get your money back. We found you had to look up the individual campgrounds websites to find out about restriction. Almost every PPA campground has some. Some wont allow you to camp on weekends. Some only in the winter. Some only in the summer. Some only a max of two days. Every one is different. Looking up their websites was the easiest way to determine. We used them at least three times a week, for the whole winter. This adds up to a lot of savings. I agree that lots of them are in decline. We found many of them were previously KOA campgrounds. You could tell by the A frame office. Since we were only looking for an overnight with full services, they fit the bill. Here is a link to next exits YouTube channel. Cheers.
