On the way to and from these we pay anywhere from $25-$35/night FHU.
The 3 weeks in/one week out is specific to your membership - you've got the biggest/bestest membership that they offer.

I'm limited to 2 weeks in and have to be out of the Thousand Trails system entirely for a week. So, at most - every 3rd week, I have to use a pay-per-night campground or not camp.

As wel, not all of the TT parks are full hookups and level concrete pads.

Depends on your membership, we are Platinum Plus and I have never been to a TT park in our 7 yrs that did not have full hook ups. BTW, never said TT had level concrete pads, that is at Fawn Ridge.

My earlier camping days, I would park in the parking lot of the race track and that was that. Now that I am back into camping and going to parks with the little one, I try and find ones either close to activities or activities. Last year, we paid like $35 to $40 a night near Hershey (not highmeadow). This year, our first campout was at a super discounted rate of $40 for the pre season weekend and we got a credit of $40 for helping to cleanup. The 2nd was free and they invoice showed $140 for the weekend including $28 for the extra adult. Our next campout in June, the bill is $142 for the weekend including $20 for the extra adult. This is Karaoke weekend at Jellystone Maple Park in Wareham Ma.

Looking at the prices others are paying, either we should get rid of the little one so we can camp at parks with less or move.

We have paid as little as $20/night and as much as $35/night. All for full hook ups and WiFi. We only have one time that we invited guests and we were charged $2 each person per night.

We stay at state parks most of the time, the GA state park are usually $25-30 per night, including water and electricity as well as clean bath house facilities.

I misread your post and see where I misunderstood.

I say that not all of them have full hookups, but I guess now that I think of it - I have to admit, only 1 comes to mind that I've camped/been at that didn't have FHU at all of the sites (Sea Pines, NJ).

Definitely depends on your membership - I'm very jealous of yours! And a little sad that I didn't come find you when we were both in Orlando.

On the opposite end of the spectrum - in our pop-up, we camped at Frontiertown in Ocean City, MD and paid $90/night.

Going back in a couple of weeks (still pre-season, though) and will be paying $45/night for the same hookups at the same place (just no waterpark, since it'll be pre-season). What a difference the time of year makes!

Looks like goshen 2013 fees are about 14.50 per night!
Considering 4 suppers and 6 breakfasts for 2.

Now I'm not sure how the cupid girls fit into this scenario but I'd like one of my meals room service.
Is there a "fee" associated with this?
And can I deduct my taxi service from these rates?
