Part of the reason I've listed the campgrounds that we'll be making reservations at in the near future. We'll be caravaning with my brother-in-law and his late model Safari (our '74 Argosy is so
). He has a membership in Resort Parks Intl
which is how we ended up making many of these selections. I'm going to look into their Enjoy America membership. Anyone out there have one
The other 50% off discount RV camping club I was looking at is Passport America RV Club
so if anyone has experience with that I'd like to hear it.
This is the breakdown of what the pricing is on our first round of picks. Of course there's a lot more to a vacation than just price so shout out if you know of any gems along the route. The locations were chosen not only for their proximity to things we thought we'd like to do and see but to keep the driving distance per day in the 250-300 mile range. There's more to vacations than just driving
Big Spruce RV, $26 + tax, Enjoy America! rate $13 (1st night only I think). Also part of Passport America.
The alternate in Tillamook looks really swank:
Paradise Cove Resort & Marina, I think it's $35/night but I'm not sure on the details or if any discounts apply. They are part of RPI.
Kalamath Falls, CA
Kalamath River RV Park, PUBLIC RATE $38 - $42, ENJOY AMERICA! RATE
1-Night Rate: $19 - $21. Also part of Passport America. Other PA campgrounds in Kalamath; Golden Bear RV Resort
and Kamp Klamath
Redwoods River Resort
,PUBLIC RATE $28 - $45 ENJOY AMERICA! RATE 1-Night Rate: $14 - $22.50. This doesn't seem to be part of Passport America but Richardson Grove Campground And RV
in nearby Garberville is and to the south Creekside RV Park
and the very small Sleepy Hollow RV Park
are also Passport America affiliated in Willits CA.
San Francisco RV Resort
, This one's expensive. $59 a night but that's no surprise given that it's 15 miles from downtown San Fran. This is where RPI could really pay off; RPI member rate: Peak season: 30% off. That would be $41 and we're looking to stay three nights (Fri, Sat, Sun). The closest Passport America park is Santa Rosa which when you pay for the gas, the toll and your time isn't really viable. The family reunion is in Palo Alto Sat & Sun.
Stafford RV Park
, PUBLIC RATE $30, ENJOY AMERICA! 1-Night Rate: $15.
This one is also covered under the Passport America program.
We haven't figured anything out yet. American RV Resorts in Talent OR is a Passport America affiliate. Normal Price: $28.00, PA rate: $14.00 It doesn't look very good in the reviews
. Mountain Man RV Park in Cave Junction OR, is another PA affiliate. It's 30 miles outside of Ashland and since we'll be staying 2 nights and traveling into town each day that's a couple of hours of extra driving but at least it's not hauling the trailer. It doesn't get the best of reviews either
. Maybe we'll just bite the bullet and stay in a hotel
Then again, we'll be traveling with pets so that might not be an option either.)
Also not to firm on anything here yet.
