Information needed on Passport America

How is Passport America? How are their campgrounds? Are the campgrounds way off the beaten path? Is it worth it?

Thanks, John

It was a big waste for me. It seemed that if a campground was somewhere where I could use it, it had either closed, full, or was no longer affiliated with Passport America. I consider it $50 thrown away.

Thanks for confirming what I heard from some others.

Sorry to drag this back up to the front...

Passport America..

I became a member of this 4 months ago, and stayed 11 nights out of 14 in a passport site - each giving me at least 50% off the cost of the night - One in California for 4 days, one in Utah for 2 days... Others just over night. I used the supplied directory, and saw only 3 sites I would not stay at. 1 I could not stay at because I had not got an adapter for the electric - 50 amp only.. Now I have my Airstream, I expect to be spending a lot of time in Passport sites - If anyone felt it not worth it, two years ago, it may have changed somewhat, or I just may like the places they have sites. I called each site I stayed at to confirm the program prior to arriving, and had at least 3 others within 20 miles of each chosen site, to fall back on.

I am looking at all such clubs, as I will be fulltime in a few short weeks, once I get the trailer working right. (fulltime on a budget. What a concept.)

We have been a member for several years. I think you can still check their website. It gives campgrounds and locations for all the states. Check states you would most need it. We used the Branson, Missouri campground several times and it was awesome. It looked right over the city. Branson View. We certainly recovered our money. It had a small pool, but our grandson had it all to himself. He loved it.

I will check shortly to verify, but I think it is just www.passportamerica.com.

I did after all join PA and it was worth the money. Over a 17 day period from FL to TX, I spent $170 for full hook-ups w/cable tv. One CG had free local phone service.

Most CG were either new or under new management and they were trying to drum up some business. All were clean!!

There are a lot of restrictions but if you do a little homework before hand it can pay big dividends. We plan our trips prior to leaving home and have found that we can use passport and still stay on our planned route, but not at every stop.

I am hoping to be in a Passport site at least 5 days in a week.. That way, fulltiming will be cheaper..

I will be boondocking from time to time also - there are many free sites in state parks, that have water, but nothing else - I will try some of them, that allow the daytime use of the genny.

I am not sure about Walmart parking lots though.. I have not tried that one but once, and didn't get a wink of sleep all night, waiting for security to tell me to go away. They never did though.
