Passport America....worth it??

Just stumbled across a website........Passport America......offering 50% discounts for many private campgrounds for an annual dues cost of $44.00.

Never heard of it before.

Worth it?

Thanks.

Yes definitely worth it! We saved $80.00 in Campground sites our first year! It paid for our membership with some left over for sightseeing money! When you book a site you have to remember to ask for the Passport America discount, but it is usually a savings of 20-30 dollars.
They will send you a book with all the PA campgrounds listed, they also have an app.

Been around for years and there are thousands of posts about PA on every RV forum out there.

It's basically great for those who can use it for weekdays and only staying 2 or 3 days.

But not worth it if you only camp weekends and holidays.

I saved two to three times the cost of membership in one month on a cross country trip. I'm renewing when the time comes. Some of the campgrounds I stayed at were also Good Sam campgrounds but with PA I saved a lot more than the GS discount offered.

Thanks guys.

But not sure why the above is true.
??

What difference does it make which days you stay, if you get 50% off the rate and it costs $44.00??? I don't see anything that says the discount is only good on weekdays. Am I missing something?

Thanks.

Some campgrounds have blackout dates when PA is not accepted. Others only accept it on weekdays and not weekends. There's plenty of campgrounds that participate so if one has blackout dates others nearby may not.

Their campground book explains it all and shows blackout dates for each campground if any. Also, some only take cash - no credit cards but that will be listed in the book also.

Each campground pretty much sets it's own time when they accept PA discounts
