At least you didn't run into Bear or Rattlesnakes on the course like I used to see at Arrowhead in Colorado.

The Bears would often bed down in the brush next to some of the greens and the Rattlesnakes would hang out in the bunkers on the warm sand.

Thank you for all the information, I now have a TT camp pass 2 zone and my first reservation in Lake of the springs in April. Since I am in Nebraska I will camp my way there using the Allstays App.
I will hit up the Elks next week.

Travelers plus

The membership is around $79 a year and there are lots of campgrounds that are $10 - $15 per night.

We also have good sam, and their roadside assistance. Our tv broke down on a trip last year and good Sam's towed the truck, but wouldn't tow my 5er because we were able to get off the highway into a parking lot. I paid to tow the trailer home, then submitted a claim with a screenshot of their website saying they tow the trailer also, and they paid the claim. Of course I would have been happier if they had just towed the trailer to start with.

Passport America will save us over $200 on reservations I've made for the season, and that's net, given the low annual cost. This includes CG's in Maryland, western Pennsylvania, and Arkansas. This is a return trip to the PA campground (Hickory Hollow) and we found it to be lovely - wish we'd had the Passport then.

That's unfortunate to hear. We don't have a ton of experience yet, but we are happy so far with our regional camping pass. We caught it on sale for $499 for a single region last November and have used it for 5 nights in Pacific City, OR and 6 nights in Chehalis WA so far.

Based on what they quote for non-members, we have gotten $488 worth of value out of it already, so anything we do going forward will be positive benefit.

Looked at another way, our cost has averaged about $44 per night so far. Any additional nights will drive that average down.
