Private Membership Camping
SAVE MONEY: Camp for just $10 or less a night at over 500 private resort campgrounds. Exclusive to members and guests, with access to hundreds of resorts nationwide.
The national average is $40 to $50 a night
Park Rangers patrol private resorts on a continual basis (peace of mind, no riffraff)
There is no control over who or what groups can camp in a public facility. Crime is increasingly on the rise in many government parks.
Safer Environment. Generally campers in a private resort are people like you, they look out for one another, similar to a neighborhood watch. You often run into the same people at other resorts.
Some parks have security, but most do not. There have been several nationwide articles telling the dangers of public campgrounds, including a feature in Time magazine describing the violence encountered by park rangers.
Private resorts offer quality facilities (85% of the resorts are 4 or 5 stars). Resorts that do not meet the specified standards of quality are removed from the system.
Public campgrounds have inconsistent facilities. Most public campgrounds are not held accountable for inferior facilities or service.
Each private resort offers numerous amenities, such as: a member lodge/club house, convenience store, indoor/outdoor swimming pool and spa complex, beach and marina, boats, fishing, playground, horseshoes, basketball, miniature golf, ice skating, horse back riding, recreation rooms, member's kitchen, restaurants, laundry facility, and much more! There really is too much to list!
Most public campgrounds just don't have the budgets for the amenities you will find in a private membership resort. Also, those that do have amenities, such as a pool, often charge extra for their usage.
Activities Directors will plan event weekends, barbecues, games (bingo, card tournaments, etc.), arts & crafts, boat races, and more!
Generally there aren't any. There are a handful of campgrounds that do, but they generally charge additional fees.
Consistently clean facilities. Both employees and members take pride in the resort, and work hard to make sure it meets the highest standards.
Inconsistent Conditions. Some parks are very nice, but this varies from campground to campground, and you usually don't find out until you arrive.
Security and privacy create a wholesome family atmosphere. There is fun for the whole family, from tiny tots to adults.
This depends on the park. You have to research to find out.
Private resorts offer many discounts for roadside assistance, hotel accommodations, amusement park admission, and more!
There are some discounts available through public campgrounds, but there are fewer than with private memberships.
RV Travel has gained popularity in the last 25 years and has now become an affordable option to those looking to experience the unique charm of the road.
If your last camping trip felt more like an episode of Survivor than a relaxing family getaway, then you will appreciate the comfort and amenities offered by RVs and RV resorts. But most of all, your family will enjoy the flexibility that RV travel provides. Some nights will be spent underneath the stars while other nights may be spent curled up underneath a blanket with a box of popcorn and a movie.
In addition to just staying warm, RV travel and RV resorts offer many activities for the whole family such as swimming, hiking, biking, fishing or even skiing and snowboarding! Plus, unique day programs for the kids allow parents to enjoy relaxing walks through the wilderness or even a quick nap, anytime! All your favorite pillows and blankets will be close by.
While the kids participate in group activities ranging from challenging ropes courses to tailored tennis lessons, Mom and Dad are free to gather necessary supplies for the next leg of the trip. Take advantage of all the resources RV Resorts have to offer and experience minimal downtime. That 2-week vacation may feel like 3 weeks or more! No standing in lines at hot and crowded theme parks or going out for expensive dinners daily. You choose the activities, meal times and supplies for each voyage. It's all about flexibility!
With hundreds of RV resorts spread across the USA, RV travel allows you to not only see the countryside, but truly experience and appreciate it's beauty in a way that air, car or train travel cannot match.
