We don't see HH as a money saving plan. We usually spend more than we would have at a campground but have had great experiences that don't happen in a campground. AND we go away with a couple of bottles of nice wines that we would not have found any where else.

HH also recommends that you offer any host that provides electric, water etc something for the utilities. Not all will accept of course and this is 100% understandable as they should not pay for electricity for everyone that comes, but if I'm going to spend something towards electric/water/sewer or dump (some have metered water) and also spend on their business venue, I might as well pay to stay at a campground with FHU.

From their FAQ:
"How much should I spend at a Host location?
Please support your Host to show your appreciation for their hospitality. When considering how much to spend at a Host, please consider the amount of money you saved in campground fees. We suggest spending a minimum of $20 in support of your Host."


Interesting. I hadn't read their FAQ page in a long time.

I wouldn't call Harvest Host Camping, its about having a safe interesting place to stay overnight while on the road. I really like it as we had stayed at many varied places from wineries and farms to Museums. All of the hosts we have encountered have been wonderful and we enjoyed the great wine and saw some museums we probably otherwise had not known about. Id rather go a few miles out the way then spend a night in a parking lot somewhere or spend campground fees just for a place to sleep for the night.
