Campground Fees and Comments

Florida state parks vary in price a lot.
$45 per night at Topsail Beach RV Resort State Park, FL. Full hookups. Too fancy for us.
$21 per night at Manatee Springs State Park, FL, water and electricity, with a dump station on the way out.

Mostly $15 to $25 for state parks in most other states with water and electricity.

$3 per night in a city park in Malta, MT. Dry camping and no dump station, but a great place. Very small town, the camping sites are among the swings, picnic shelters, etc. After T-ball in the adjacent field the kids and parents came into the RV/city park while the older kids played their game.

$14 per night in Tulelake, CA, Fairgrounds campground. About 25 sites in deep grass, nearly new full hookups, on the last street of a very small town, with a deputy sheriff living in the first house just outside the gate. The campground is behind the Goats and Sheep barn. There were RV's and boats stored there when we visited.

In over 250 nights camping in the last wo years we were only charged extra for electricity one time. The owner of a UP Michigan campground charged $3 for A/C or electric heater. He said he pays $0.22 per KWH. His base rate was only $24 so I thought the extra was reasonable. In my opinion, in his case it was a better deal to charge the high kwh users and keep a low rate for those who use little electricity.

3) Do they charge for guests ?

4) weird fees?

5) extra charges? A/c use? Water heater use? Pets?

Thousand Trails=$526/yr, 3 wks in one week out and can go to another TT campground. So, we can stay 365 days in Thousand Trails for $526 for full hook ups. $1.44/night. Also stay in Fawn Ridge/Deer Path $430/yr with 2 weeks in one week out year round with a $2/night charge for elec. Full hook ups, level concrete pads. On the way to and from these we pay anywhere from $25-$35/night FHU.

That's a great bargain OC. Do you have to be reserved well in advance?
Do you ever get locked out because they're full?

Only time there is any problem is from 01Jan -31Apr at Thousand Trails Orlando. We have to make reservations 120 days out for 2 weeks in/1 week out. Other than these dates, never a problem and they have overflow campgrounds if full. Never heard of anyone being locked out. They also have overnight parking.
