Works great for us, we use it for short 1-5 day stays usually while traveling to a destination. Don't expect to use it during some peak seasons and very busy areas they will black out certain dates but for the money you cant beat it.

rjsupersonic is correct. Passport America is well worth the money, just be aware that you need to pick and choose locations and timing due to blackouts. We have been members for three years and we have saved hundreds of dollars using PA's RV parks.

depends on how you travel, how often, and what expectations of 'rv parks' you are looking for...

I use it all the time. Great for one night stopovers. Some parks aren't as good as other.

Like another poster said, you have to watch what days they accept it and those they don't.

Has saved me a lot of money.

You can't lose with Passport America. You will recover the cost of membership the first time or two you use it!

There are a lot of restrictions. Most campgrounds will only allow one or two nights and only during the week, but it's well worth it!

I haven't found that at all.

Three parks I recently stayed at, one was a week. One was two weeks. And the third was one week, but if they had plenty of empty spaces, they would continue to give you the PA rate +$3 per day for power.

Ditto

Well worth the price. We use it every chance we can and we full time.

Read each parks rules carefully. Some black out whole months, some only accept Sun-Thur, some only the first night of two, etc.

You get your money's worth in one stay. If you only camp one or two weeks a year it is probably not a good choice.

Also, tell the campground that you found them through PA, so they know it is worth their membership.

My experience with PA mirrors what others have said. We just paid for our annual membership in one three-night stay.

I will add that calling the campground will prevent confusion when you do arrive, and you can sometimes get them to extend the PA rate if their published rules say otherwise. Always worth asking.

Cheers,

Join it is a NO "brainer" for sure. We have a lifetime membership and they send us FREE directories when ever we need a newer one. Just a tip we sometimes call on a campground as we are on the road and need a place to spend the night. We ask if they accept PA when it is NOT mentioned on their listing, and 9 out of ten times they say they will honor PA 50% off of their rate if we want to stay a night or two. A fast nickel verses a slow dime when the space would yield NOTHING is a good profit for the private camp ground.

You won't lose any money because, as noted, it only takes a stay or two to get your investment back. But, you could wind up going through a lot of contortions if you let it drive your selection of places to stay - limiting conditions, going off route, and often passport parks are not among the better ones in town. I keep telling myself its paid for and use it if its convenient to our travels and the park gets decent reviews.
