      Update from Texas Assn of Campground Owners re: Evacuees   08/28/17

      Good morning, There are now at least 18 privately owned and operated campgrounds and RV parks across Texas that are accepting evacuees. The attached news release, updated from the one the association issued yesterday, includes the names and contact info for the parks. Consumers can also do their own research to identify parks with RV spaces and rental cabins at www.TexasCampgrounds.com and www.TexasCabinRentals.net. Please contact Brian Schaeffer, executive director and CEO of the Texas Association of Campground Owners, on his cell phone at (817) 307-0129 for any questions. We will continue to update this release over the weekend based on the feedback we receive from campgrounds and RV parks across Texas. Many thanks for including our information in your reports yesterday. We appreciate it. Sincerely, Jeff Crider

Campground Membership

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any comments regarding memberships in any/all of the above? We are concerned that the campgrounds involved in these plans are all old and primarily reaching, or have reached advanced stages of disrepair? We have researched over 30 of these campgrounds through RV reviews and are perhaps coming to the conclusion that we can do better through Passport America and such. T & MW

If you don't mind going to the same parks over and over as you travel then the membership site can usually pay for themselves. If you want to "wander" you will have a much greater selection of campgrounds with other plans such as PA. You are correct that many of the membership campgrounds are getting older but the biggest complaint can be trying to find a suitable site at all as some are allowing permanents and others use only 2-3 campgrounds and simply move between them keeping "their sites" pretty well tied up.

I'd be very careful and do lots of research. Many of the memberships are expensive and require many years obligation. We joined 1000 Trails but let it expire...the CGs were alway full of parked RVs on annual agreements and they had the best spots.

We have a Thousand Trails elite membership and are enjoying the great campgrounds in the system. This includes Mid Atlantic and Outdoor World. Have stayed 91 nights since May. We have never had trouble getting a reservation and were able to stay where we wanted. As far as costs, the last 2 years staying in the campgrounds that we have, we have paid for the membership cost and the annual fee. From here on since our investment is paid for, our annual cost is $585 for as many nights as we care to do.
