Each RV park owner has their own rules, you just have to read their fine print. We stayed several days, including the weekend at a place near Glacier National Park in September. We got our membership fee back due to the discounts from this one RV park.

We renewed our membership late February and we already saved $106 over the $44 membership cost. We expect to save considerably more when we hit the road for our 7K to 8K mile road trip in a couple of months.

Be very careful to see which sites in the camp are available for PA discount. PA camps also have the discretion to assign only certain sites for the discount.
They may be already filled, poorly serviced, or nearly impossible to level in.
GIMIC101 get you in, bait and switch Why would a quality camp give it away for less than cost?

Each park can set their own rules. While some eliminate weekends and holidays, the rules vary widely. We've spent lots of weekends under the program.

Where we have found it useful is long term travel. It's best for stays of 1-3 nights but we've used it for a week at a few parks when we meet the rules.

If you only travel locally to 1 park, you are going to need to read the rules for that park closely to see if you can utilize it (might be worth a call to the park to get their thoughts on repeated use).

It's cheap enough that you only need a few nights to break even.

We found a sorta neat, new RV park in the edge of the N Georgia mtns yesterday. Nothing fancy just FHU 50 amp with a bath house. Small place, concrete pads, wide sites - some on a small river and others in the open. They say there regular price is 50 dollars, but with PA it is 25. I am not sure it is worth the 44 fee to join PA for a couple of times there per summer.
Tell me more about PA please


What is the name of this park?

We just love PA. We mostly use it for overnight stops and on this year's winter trip we saved $142 with it, with the biggest savings in Florida. They keep sending you special deals for renewals and a month ago we got a super deal on a lifetime membership, so we got it.
They're not the fanciest places but it's our first choice when on the road.

I agree not always the best parks, but I have stayed in some very nice parks.
I like pa, great to use when inroute to destination, or back home.
Some don't have limits on stay.

They were not accepting Passport America anywhere the last few times we went out. Covid losses. Call to make sure they are excepting it.

Odd, we left last September went west from Michigan, across to Wyoming, down thru Utah, to California, then east across Arizona, Texas and into Florida before working our way north thru the Appalachians. Over 8 months we used 18 different PPA parks...none indicated any issue taking it due to covid.

Not so. We have never been assigned a bad site because we used PA. Park operators use PA as a means to attract customers during their slow times of the year.
