I think that maybe KOA is the most, only stay at them when traveling, they are always next to the interstate. In virginia the State Parks are almost twice the cost of the COE CG which there are plenty of. For W/E only it's I think 24.00 per night. if you get a Golden Access passport it 12.00 per night. Also the passport is free. It makes it 1/2 price at any Federal Park. Can't beat that. They are all nice, lots of space and clean.

State Parks are usually the cheapest. Anywhere from $18 to $25 a night. And you can usually find one around what you are visiting.

Manitoba Provincial Parks from $11 to $28 for basic to full service sites. Less expensive than either Saskatchewan or Ontario and we have some awesome provincial parks!! Best deal going in the prairies. Oh, forgot to mention you need a park pass for entry, daily cost $5 or seasonal $40. Come and check it out!!

We have paid anywhere from 35 to 125 a night and we are usually just water and electric hookup. The most expensive has been the jellystones on a holiday weekend (but you do it for the kids��). We prefer state parks, for the cost and that they tend to be less of a parking lot.
Agree on KOA's. we are paying $70 for a one night stay at a KOA. We really had no choice since it is the only place in the area where we need to stop for the night. It is near a major city so the rates are high. All other campgrounds we stay at are usually $30-$45 for full hooks. But we stay in a lot of state parks that are in the $20's for electric only.

Hey B and B Have you checked the prices at say Bon Echo or the other top spot P.P. Was looking at Bon Echo a spot is $138 for electric only ( I hope I was reading that wrong!!! ) The prices I find at P.P. varies on popularity of park.
Yup was reading it wrong forgot that reservation site totals up cost of nights you want to stay automatically . B and B you are correct on per night cost.

We pay between $5-$26 for sites in Alberta.. There are extra fees or adjustments based on services.. Private campgrounds go up from there..

When we went to the states we paid anywhere from $20 to $65 a night depending on what was at each campground.. Usually they were full serviced, some had a pool, mini golf, ice cream shop, wifi, etc..

Haven't been back but the last time we stayed at a Virginia State Park it cost us over $35 a night (water/ electric/ dump station/ with dogs) could have other extras added as well so sky was the limit for charges..... where our newer within an hour campground was $30 a night , with no extra $ for add ons for anything and with the Good Sam discount. At the beach full hook up was around $75 a night but within a few hundred feet of the ocean depending on which site you got & no extra charges for extra people, dogs etc..

We're full timers & we've stayed at 135 different campgrounds in the past 2.5 years. We've averaged $29 a night and we almost always have full hook ups at 4 & 5-star RV parks.


KOAs sometimes get a bad rap ... and sometimes they deserve it! But many are great and a few are even a great bargain. You can't paint them all with one paintbrush. We joined their little KOA club ($20 a year) & get 10% off -- not much but it helps.


I highly recommend you use sites like RVPARKREVIEWS.COM to help you sort the diamonds from the duds. I take the time to review every campground that we visit as many others do too.
