Ocean Canyon properties

I received a message from these people informing me that since I am loyal Camping World customers I get a complimentary 4 day/3night stay.

Does anyone have any experience with this organization?

Thanks

Like time share promotions get ready for a high pressure sales pitch for a lifetime membership. Keep you hands in you pockets to save money. Do a Google search for scams. Not necessarily a scam and may be what you want but be cautious, there is no free ride.
I had a friend that took their vacations to Florida for a quite a few years working on the free stays. They never bought anything. When you say NO you get the bums rush out of there.

You have to know your tolerance level for refusal and tolerance for in your face sales. Not as ez as you may think. Also, think about what you are potentially going to agree to. Is it even worth your time?
We got hooked into a Disney deal years ago. It was 4 hours of intense sales. We now own 6 timeshares, 2 condos and a lifetime of Disney Cruises personally escorted by Mickey Mouse! ok, NOT!
BUT, the sales pitch was intense. They have these things down so you feel like crap saying no.
Just realize nothing is FREE. You are paying in stress.

Yeah, we got one recently also. Sat thru the sales pitch several years ago when it was focused on condo timeshares. Told em I only travel with an RV. Now I guess they have that covered too as the new invite is to one of several RV "resorts" in the south. We're going to the one in Milwood Lake Arkansas because its near. Have no intentions of buying, we just don't trvel much that way. Usually on the road from place to place. If I remember correctly, the price came down from around $7000 to near $3000 last time, even tho I never said it was about the money. They do not like no.

Despite their 6 calls a day, I have yet to call them back. I am an assistant principal at an alternative campus and discipline center, I am used to high pressure in my face situations. If I didn't have to drive to Texarkana, I might go and have fun with them. The $75 gift card to camping world will not cover the gas to drive out there.

I do appreciate everyone's advice.

Thanks

Ha. Know what you mean. After 33 years in law enforcement, I've no problem dealing with pushy folks either. We're going for the free 3 nights, free golf and just for a weekend get away in September. I'll try to remember to report back so others can have an update on the situation.

Went to Camping World to buy some items for our new TT and now I'm getting the calls! Multiple calls!!

I can tell you if you're contacted by them for a free stay at their newest property Compton Ridge, in Branson MO I'd look closely. Its about 10 minutes from our home. Unimpressive. What I can say is its close to Silver Dollar City, so if you want to go to the park it might be for you. But even if it were $18 a night like at the Army Corps parks on the Lake I wouldn't stay there. Oh, and it's not on the Lake, and it's $35 - $45 a night! Might be some folks cup of tea, but not my idea of camping.

Heck, our home's on the Lake I have a 30AMP RV service in the driveway and there's a fire ring lakeside, so "camp driveway" ain't too bad. Perhaps I can get $50 a night!! Caveat Emptor

Ocean Canyon purchased it and is now running operations.
