In Virginia Beach area First Landing State Park is near / on the water with camp sites. $35-38 water/ electric before extra fees. But we can go to the Beach (Myrtle Beach) quicker than we can get to Virginia Beach. With several large campgrounds on the ocean.

At CA state parks I paid up to $75 a night for full hook ups. At a couple of local campgrounds its more like $42-45 a night.

Anything north of $40- is too much. It's not a hotel room where someone else is doing the cleaning, etc. It's a place to park for a while and enjoy the surroundings. It's much cheaper to build than a hotel, too. I stayed at a park in West Texas a couple of weeks ago... Mountain View RV Park in Van Horn... for $27- for the night. It was one of the cleanest, and best maintained parks I've been in... with wifi and cable. I'll be stopping there again when out that way.

When we got our 1985 Class C, back in 2005, gas was around $1.75/gal, WA state parks were $15 (mostly FHU) and the commercial CGs ranged from $15 at KOA to $17 or more at the fancy "resorts".

We sold that old clunker after a couple of seasons - 6 mpg at sea level and 4.5 at altitude just didn't cut it. We waited a couple of years and got a newer 32' Class A. Prices just kept going up. In the 2013 season, gas was $4.50 in the small towns on the Oregon coast, SPs were $28 and we looked at one "resort" that was $100, but didn't stay. The majority of the commercial ones were $60 or more.

We finally concluded that this hobby was just too expensive. We didn't use the MH at all in the 2014 season - too much else going on. We decided to sell on consignment and it finally sold in early December for about 50% of what we paid for it four years earlier. We'd done 6000 miles in the three seasons we used it. The original owners had done 11,000 miles in 8 seasons.

We enjoyed our trips, but the cost was prohibitive.

We prefer to stay in the $25.00-$35.00 range. We have stated at a couple of Jellystones, but the kids have more fun at State Parks and smaller campgrounds. As a family we enjoy the outdoors and hiking in real nature.

You have to be 62 for the senior pass to federal parks. They no longer call it the golden passport.

In Ontario if you are classified disabled with a handicap parking permit you pay half price for provincial parks. Round about way of a discount but for people with a disability it helps.
