Sources for RV reservation discounts

DH and I aren't officially senior citizens...neither of us are sixty yet. Are there sources that any of you know about that will afford us discounts for nightly fees?

Joining the Good Sam Club will get you a 10% discount at their many member parks. Also some parks give discounts for members of AARP and many folks join Passport America and enjoy a 50% discount at the many parks that are members of Passport America.

Weezer, you can still join AARP, even before you are 60 (55, if I remember correctly) and that is good for a 10% discount at many parks.

only discounts i know of, are the 10% discounts that most anyone can get.
doesn't matter if it's AAA, AARP or Good Sam, they all are only 10%.

that's why many of us get Passport America or one of their competition.
they are the only type of true "discount" at campgrounds out there.

Thanks, ya'll! I checked Passport America, wasn't impressed with the parks they offer in AR, LA, TX, MS. They appear to all be private parks.

AARP? ummm no thanks...'nuff said

We're members of Good Sam, so we'll utilize that even if it's 10%.

There's a membership for LA State Parks here, done through LA Wildlife, but I must hit that 60 mark first, then, IIRC, it's a 50% discount.

Doodler I'll check in to that Federal Park discount!

When you hit 62 you can get a National Park lifetime senior pass for a one time fee of 10 bucks.

LOL, yeah, our camping buddies have that....I've got a ways to go to qualify for that.

Was just checking the extended weather forecast for our area...it appears that after this next mi-week, we're DONE with night time freezing temps!


YIP YIP YIP YAHOOOOO! I may need to take on a second job to pay for all the reservations I'm about to book!
