X2 on the AllStays and I think I have tried most Apps. Especially good for Passport America, Army Corp of Engineers, City/County parks (order that I look when on the road). As for "Clubs" Passport America, Good Sam (for discount at parks only not fuel discount or any other offerings), and am considering KOA. Just returned from a four week excursion from Mich to LA and back. Took PA 50% discount most nights but quality varied. Love COE parks for quality but are usually off Interstate a ways.
Stayed at KOA three nights because they were the best option for the night.
This is just my second year of RVing over 50% of then time so I am sure their ore options I have not found yet.

Good Sam & Passport America plus Senior Pass for National Parks & Fed Rec lands

First if you are over 62 get a America the Beautiful Senior Pass (Free) for National Parks and Federal Recreation lands. Also helps with discounts at State Parks. Passport America has worked out well for us and we are mostly weekend campers. The first 2-3 nights at a 50% discount covers the membership fee. Also have Good Sam and that has saved us 10% at a lot of Parks so it pays for itself within a year easily. Also gets you fuel discounts at some truck stop gas stations. If you shop or get service at Camping World there are good discounts there as well. One of our friends stay at KOA almost exclusively and of course utilize their KOA membership. My advice is that for the first year pick one or two and see how it goes. Just keep a little log on what you would save. One note on Passport America. Many of the campgrounds who honor that do not advertise that they are Passport America Parks. You have to look in the Passport America directory or mobile app and then ask the campground when you make reservations. It seem many of those campgrounds don't like to advertise you can get a 50% discount.

Next Exit, as an interstate travel guide in the USA

And while you're on the road, we have really found the book "Next Exit" to be invaluable. Works on interstates in the USA as it provides an exit-by-exit listing of every service you will need while traveling in all the major categories: food, gas, lodging, camping, shopping, & more.
We really find it a help in identifying not only diesel fuel stops, but more importantly, if the stop can physically handle us and our 32' fifth wheel, once we're there.
Apparently now available both on line by subscription as well as the physical book; but with the number of times we can't get on-line, we've found, over the years, that the book has been of more value to us.
Travel Well!

We have Passport America - after 3 stays paid for our Annual Membership, we decided to get the Lifetime Membership. Passport America credited our annual membership toward the Lifetime membership!

We have more than recouped the cost of the Lifetime membership in only 1 1/2 years of membership!

We are also Canadian & we are Snowbirds. We use Passport America for the half price discounts and AAA RV Plus for trouble on the road. Without the RV, if you have a breakdown AAA will only send one tow truck. With AAA RV they send 2. One for the TT.
We also have the book Next Exit for services along Interstates and we have a 2 year old copy of Woodall's Campground Directory. Buy most everything at Camping World.

I used when booking reservations for our cross country trip last July. It was very helpful. To payback, I have so far put in reviews for everywhere we camped from CA to NY via the I-40 (old route 66). I kept my paper itinerary with my campground notes, and soon I will put in reviews for our return trip we did vis I-70.

+1 for Passport America and Good Sam. We use PA pretty regularly, and it pays for itself after just a couple uses. It's best for one or two night stays while en route somewhere. GS gives a smaller camping discount. We use it mostly for fuel discounts and Camping World discounts. If you decide to join either and want a referral (I believe you get a few extra months on PA with a referral) feel free to use mine. My Passport America number is C-681060. Good Sam is 839950094.
