Hi Lee,
I agree with you. $175/mo for 50 AMP is an outstanding value. Enjoy

Been paying $40 per month for the past 5 months. There are 15 sites here and we all pay the same monthly rate. THat includes water and full time sewer connection and each site has its own power meter and you pay the power company directly. No surprise, but all sites are occupied and most are payed in advance a year at a time. My site had only 30amp service so I bought the receptacle, breaker, box, ect. and set up 50amp service on my site. Upon arriving it took one day for the local power company to set up the account and turn the power on. The family that owns this park are retired and they are very happy with the small monthly income they receive, and clearly they are not greedy.

Nothing personnal, but don't ask where I'm located cause I'm not telling. Per chance that's the problem, to many tell about the good deals and good locations and soon these locations are filled and abused. Likewise, we're selfish about other wonderful locations we discover and visit so as they don't become over populated and abused. I will say we're located in Louisiana on a fact about 100 feet from it and fishing is great.

When I was in the lodging business, we rarely discounted for reservations well in advance and the closer it got with the possibility of having an empty room, the more we considered discounting the room. The same hold true with a campsite. It is a perishable product. If you donít sell it tonight, then that money can never be recouped. I think you will be paying the highest rate (called rack rate) when you make your reservations so far in advance. If you call at 2 PM the day you want to arrive, the campground owner is faced with the choice of renting at a reduced rate or having no revenue at all. Many choose to take the money. Many of the cost are fixed and continue if the site is rented or not. A bird in the hand is better than two in the bush. You do run the risk of not finding a spot, but in my experience of doing the no reservation thing, this very rarely occurs except on holiday weekends. The airline industry has taken this practice to extreme via computer generated pricing based on availability. On a flight with 150 passengers there can be 75 different prices with the high and low varying by a factor of 5.

campground fees

we recently went to callaway gardens in pine mountain, ga. and rates were $50.00 a night. i think it is soon going to be more economical to stay in a hotel with camp ground prices on the rise and the price of gas. faye
