If you are looking for the campground discounts only, not worth joining. We belong because of all the many other benefits, groups, unique rally’s, etc. the new programs called “Hangouts” just started this year all previous and future scheduled ones have sold out. The newest one in TX sold out in 5 hours. I know this because we got the last slot. Many other benefits and discounts plus information and lobbying for RV interests. Well worth supporting.

They also offer a veteran discount I have never bothered to get because I believe in what they do and don’t mind supporting them. We met Kay Peterson, the cofounder, years ago and loved her at first sight. Unfortunately she has left us but her legacy lives on.

Been members for 17 years plus the mail service. Excellent outfit, but if looking for campground discounts only, probably not worth it.

As said, the thousand or so campground discounts (15% with a few 50%) alone is probably not worth the dues cost, but the overall package is more than worth it. Beyond the discount parks, there's also the club owned parks and member owned co-op parks, both with very reasonable rates, plus the excellent magazine and the other available services such as mail forwarding and roadside service also at reasonable rates. And the topper is the Escapees non-profit CARE (Continuing Assistance for Retired Escapees) center that offers specialized facilities near Livingston, TX to assist fulltimers with illness or injury recovery either short term or long term as needed. No other RV club offers anything like it that I'm aware of.
