How to save money on campground stays

The cost of using commercial campgrounds increases each year. Here are a few campground options that can save you money year after year.

For short stays between destination parks, purchase a discount campground directory. These discount club memberships cost between $50 to $80 per year and provide a 10 percent to 50 percent discount off nightly rates.

Private campground systems usually charge a one-time membership fee plus annual maintenance, similar to an HOA for homeowners. You do not own the RV site but pay an annual maintenance fee for the privilege of using one space for a few days or a few weeks during each stay.

Private campground networks offer entrance to private parks around the country that open their doors to you for a few nights or even a few weeks without an individual park membership required.
