Question HarvestHosts - Anyone know anything about them?

Hello all,

First of all I am not sure this is the right forum for this but....

Does anyone know about HarvestHosts? I see them advertising unlimited camping or $75 per year (15% with the pass code of SPRING).

Has anyone used them and if so, what have been your experiences?

We have enjoyed the places we have stayed for free, but it's very easy to spend more than a campground fee. We have bought some great wines!

So the question is, would you have bought some great wines anyway? If you are like me, very probable.....

Thought about it a long time ago when I first heard of them. There's no way to know the participating places in the system before you commit to membership. For us, we've grown so use to having hookups- it's a tough sale too (although if the spots were really nice it might be worth it). As they say- YMMV.

Yes and no. We don't buy wine at a campground store (always carry enough) but after tasting at the HH we found some we liked that you won't find everywhere. We don't Walmart or truck stop camp but at a nice farm or vineyard, it's different. We keep the water full and the b & g tanks as empty as possible, just in case.

We looked at it briefly, but it is pretty much just boondocking at a winery or farm, generally 1 night only, so it didn't fit our travel style or needs.

If you enjoy that type of stay, however, and don't mind that the locations aren't your typical easy access overnight ones, it could be worth looking into. It all depends on your travel needs and wants.

I felt the same. I want to know where the sites are to see if they fit my normal travel areas but having to pay first turned me away.

We joined last December with the old rate and were grandfathered in for future renewals. Next week, we begin our journey to Arizona and are staying at two locations. One has water and electric and the other one has electric. These two just happened to be locations on our route and we are only stopping one night at each place to get to Arizona. I think this will more than pay for our membership and they have great reviews.


On our return trip, we are able to stay at two different locations too.
I will try to remember to comment here after we return.

I've had a membership for a few years now. Love it. Have stayed at beautiful farms and wineries.

As mentioned above, it's mostly boondocking with hookups being a rarity.

As well, you're expected to make a purchase to show your appreciation.

It's only 1 night, though I've had friends stay places 2-3 nights before.

And lastly, the kicker for me- you're expected to arrive during business hours. That's hard for us as we rarely overnight anywhere but when we do, it's arriving late (10pm or later) at a Walmart.

Here's a nice little write up with photos of the full-timer's experience with Harvest Host with their 40' motorhome. Once there they got permission to add another night. This excellent blogger also has awesome park reviews of many of their stays arranged by state. Check them out by doing a 'clicky' from the top line.
