There are many advantages to having one or more RV campground memberships when you own a travel trailer. There are many different types of memberships and organizations that you can be a part of, which all offer various benefits to their members.
There are two main divisions of RV Campground Memberships.
All these organizations offer different packages ranging from basic to advanced memberships, with different price points to meet each individual's needs and desires. The best part is that you can control how much you pay.
Membership organizations are a good investment if you travel or camp a lot with your travel trailer, because of the cost savings and conveniences they offer. But even if you don't use your RV frequently, there are other benefits many people have no idea exist.
Many of these organizations lobby and fight to protect RVer's rights across the United States. They also serve as consumer advocates to the RV industry, pushing for higher safety standards.
Travel membership organizations are RV based groups that offer many benefits to RV owners, but do not own any campgrounds or RV parks. Instead they offer nightly discounts through their associated campground and resort members.
Good Sam offers 10% nightly discounts at their participating campgrounds, which are easier to find than brightly colored leaves on a crisp autumn day. OK, that may be an overstatement, but where ever you go you are not too far from a Good Sam Park. They also have so much more to offer than just discounts on campgrounds.
There are other clubs that have a lot to offer, too.
RV membership resorts are very beneficial if you are a full timer or are blessed to be able to travel frequently. They offer many amenities such as hot tubs, pools, tennis courts, etc.
The main drawback to these RV campground memberships is the high cost to join and annual maintenance fees. However, there is usually no nightly cost to camp there for their members. This being said, they are not a good value for anyone who will not use the facilities at least three times a year
Here are some membership resorts that may be of interest to you. They all offer different services so take your time in choosing. If you can't decide, in time you can always become a member of several. Many folks do that. This also gives you a choice of where you can travel or camp with your RV.

You do not have to be a member of any organization to enjoy the benefits of exploring travel trailers or camping in general. These are here for you to see the different types of memberships and to help guide you in the direction that you'd like to go. You'll be able to tell if that particular organization is for you or not.
We hope we have and can answer any and all questions that you may have had about RV memberships.
One thing to consider while planning a trip or investing in an RV Membership is that not all companies have campgrounds all over the USA. Depending on where you live may determine which organization you go with.
