Looking at Thousand trails campsites, and they seem to be in all the places my family would want to go.
How much is the membeship and dues for Thousand Trails? Any information on likes/dislikes would be nice too. Any other recommendations for member resorts in Washington/Paciic Northwest would also be helpfun
We have been members for approx. 8 years and couldn't be happier.
We are in Seabeck,Washington and have visited many of the NW sites.
If you want to email me with the specific questions you have, I'll see if we can answer them.
I had a 30 day free stay at thousand trails when we bought our fleetwood pop-up 2 summers ago. We didn't get around to using it until last summer - close to when it was running out. We went to the Chesepeake VA preserve and liked it alot. We did think for our needs (we both work f/t) that it was expensive. They did run a special for a national membership for $2995. We didn't take advantage of the offer at the time and it expired. I called in May to make sure i could remain on the mailing list. I told them about the expired offer and that I would be interested in any similar offers that would come along. They called me back and offered me the membership for $2995 with $398/yr dues. We signed up.

Not a member but did check it out at Lake Whitney, Texas about 2 years ago. Don't remember the price now but we did think that it was worth it if you use it enough. We are not in a position to be camping that much plus we're not sure if we want to be restricted to their parks, nice as they are.
If these two factors aren't a problem and you like the idea, I'd say give it a try.
PS: I have a friend who was a member for many years. He sold his membership when his kiddos grew up and he and his wife quit camping. He has told me that he thought it was well worth it.

We are limited members, and have access to three TT campgrounds. We were introduced to them when we got a four month membership with the Fleetwood Yukon travel trailer we bought in 1989. We visited the Verde Valley Preserve many times until it ran out. Since then, the cost of certain memberships has dropped, so we signed up. We use the Verde Valley preserve as a first night and last night destination as we leave and return to the Phoenix area. I only wish I had more time to spend there.
Can't comment on TT, but if you are interested in NW resorts then look at KM located if Fife WA.
They have 7 properties in the state. Squim, Newport, Randle, Ocean Shores area etc.
Now sure of the cost now, but I am a very satisfied member. Coast to Coast member also.
Just a little more data. I stayed at one in the
Cuyuamaca Mts about two hours east of San Diego in 1998 and it was very nice. They had free fishing for the little ones in a little stocked pond and swimming pool that was clean. We got to stay free on a promotion.
