You should be able to pick up a card at either of these parks. (call first) Nice parks to visit if you havn't been there already and at $10 a night for seniors over 62 with the card, its a deal.
You probably have Good Sams card, Just about every CG gives you a 10% discount with their card. Go to Camping World's web site and buy their bundle pkg for $100. You get Road Side Assistance, GS card, Camp club ( 1/2 price camping), CW membership and a couple of mags and their camp ground directory. All this for just $100. I think Passport America is okay, but as mentioned, some parks are not worth the effort, but some are real nice. One especially in Pidgen Forge Tenn and another at Brickyard Plantation Golf and CG in Americus ( Golf @$5 for 18 holes.) BYP is supposed to have blue grass and bar-b-que over the Labor day weekend. If it was like last year it would be well worth visitings. Call them first to make sure. (camping is $15 with the PA card) The only bad thing about this place is the knats this time of the year, but then you know about them already being in S. Ga.
IMHO, clubs like Thousand Trails and C-to-C and etc are for full timers. Lot of up front cost and if you do not stay with them a lot, its costly. ( I've never been a member of one of these clubs, but did attent a sales presentation in Orlando one time. The first offer for membership was around $9000 and about 20 mins later it was down below $3000. The salesman just about cried when I told him NO! s/Toby
thanks for the info, my son lives in tallahasse and works for the state. we sometime camp at coe's when the fish are biting. we have also gone to cottonhill in fort gaines, but prefer the campground on the al. side, Hardridge. we have just purchased a motorhome and are now trying to equip a car for towing. tell me more about the camp in americus as it is about 50 miles away. are you going to the rally in dillard? we would like to go to myrtle beach, before they switch to the christmas shows if we get the tow car equipped. thanks to all who have responded, i've learned so much since exploring this site.faye...
