We have stayed at some Ocean Canyon Properties using our Coast To Coast Affilate membership. Cost us $10/night.
Alabama...Styx River & Mountain Lakes
Nice campgrounds but for $10 I can't complain.
Memberships work IF:
You can purchase 'cheap'
You use them ALOT
If purchasing ALWAYS purchase via a resale. Never directly. Resales are pennies on the dollar and you get the same benefits.
We purchased a 'home' park with upgraded affiliate memberships (C2C, PRI & AOR) that allows us to stay at affiliate CG's thru-out USA for $10/15 per night.
Cost was $950 one time fee with yearly dues:
Home Park.....$59/yr (frozen)
C2C & PRI.....$129/each/yr (can stay up to 14 nights per visit)
AOR...$99/yr (can stay up to 14 nights per visit)
Total cost per year..$416
Been using them for almost 5 years.......but we FT and stay at one or other approx. 200 (+) nights a year.
Really helps cut/control CG fees.
Now....the CG's aren't always someplace close to 'destinations/tourist' spots.
Some CGs are better than others
Some are off the beaten path
We also use Passport America....$44/yr. with 50% off at participating CGs
Again some limitations/restrictions apply
And then we also pay full price (always as for discount...sometimes you get one 10% just for asking).
Lots of ways.......just be sure WHAT you are getting into and especially what the EXCLUSIONS are.
