Private campground membership

Hi, this is my first post on this forum. We just bought our first travel trailer & bought a membership at a private campground in Michigan: Outdoor Adventures. We also have access to Coast to Coast campgrounds for $10/night & Good Sam campgrounds for $30/night. Has anyone stayed at any of these campgrounds? What was your impression/experience? I'm planning on possibly taking some road trips next summer and would appreciate any advice.

I don't have any experience with any of those memberships, but do travel extensively within Thousand Trails. I'd imagine the experiences are similar.

Generally with TT, you're going to get an RV-park experience. The sites are usually pretty level and almost always have water and electric hookups. Many will have sewer, also. There usually isn't a whole lot of privacy between sites. I haven't been to too many where I really felt cramped (like I have at some resort destination-type places).

Finally, they're usually feature rich on amenities and activities - one or two pools, hot tub, minigolf, sports courts, etc.

Obviously, it's not for everyone. For the kind of traveling I do with our camper- it works well for us.

Your best bet is to purchase Trailer Life Directory. It's a book that you can usually find at your local bookstore or on www.campingworld.com. It lists and ranks all campgrounds who are listed in the book. Figure out your route and check the book. The rating system is 1) completeness of facilities; 2) cleanliness; and 3) visual appearance. The book is a wonderful tool that my husband and I have used all across the country. We also enjoy the Corp of Engineers campgrounds which you I can find on www.recreation.gov. I don't know if there are any of these campgrounds in your part of the country, but we love them in the south. Good luck and happy camping!
