Lady of the Moose? Free Camping?

I was talking to a nice gentleman at a local campground and he asked if I'd ever thought of joining the Moose Club - to take advantage of their free camping.

Seems that (locally at least) several Moose Clubs allow members to park and camp free of charge for up to two weeks. Whether that includes any hookups I'm not sure, but since you park behind the Moose Club you can always to go any meal they have - for a modest donation.

As I understand it, Joining as a Lady of the Moose, will cost only about $60 per year. If this is nationwide, this could be a very inexpensive way of staying overnight with a decent vibe compared to WalMart.

Anyone else know anything about this program?


Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

I talk to my moose lodge and find out. My mother I law is a member and got my wife and I signed up. We are defiantly the youngest people there at 40. But we take the kids up for dinner and dancing on Friday nights some times. The kids love to dance.

May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..

Moose lodge camping

Most lodges that have a parking lot allow overnight camping. It ranges from boondocking to an electric out on the side of the building, an outlet on a light pole, to a 30 amp hookup. I have been at a couple with water hookups also. Dump station are rare.

The dues for a Women of the Moose member is high. Contact a local lodge. they can give you the correct info. To find a local lodge goto, use the lodge or chapter locator.

Happy camping

Recently Joined...

I recently joined the Moose Lodge for camping. We needed to stay in a location in Florida during the peak snowbird season so camping spots were in short supply. The local Moose Lodge provided 20A electric, access to water around the corner so we filled up our fresh water tank, but they did not have a sewer connection. We stayed four nights and paid $15/night so it was not free.

I subsequently contacted other Moose Lodges and found a wide variety of RV camping is available. As somebody said in a previous post... sometimes it's boondocking and sometimes it includes full hookups - just depends.

The Allstays camping app identifies Moose as well as Elk and Eagle lodges. If you joined all three you could cover much of the United States. We chose Moose because it was convenient in Florida, paid for itself immediately, and has relatively wide coverage across the U.S.

As note in a previous post is Moosehaven retirement community in Jacksonville. I think it's a great place - we took a two hour tour of the facility and were very impressed. I don't know what I'll do when I/we need elder care but now Moosehaven is on our list of possibilities.
