    I have found that nicer parks have more restrictions - usually. I have stayed in very nice smaller parks that have few, if any, restrictions. One needs to do the research and be flexible. In cross country travel, I got one or two parks out of three. But I...  more

      Frank and EJ Putnam That's the Spirit! A campgrounds main goal is to be profitable.
      If one looks at it that way then it is easy to understand that CGs near popular areas will either not offer PA or be very restrictive about their PA offerings. So you plan accordingly....  more

      Halfloaf I just got tired of having to haggle and dealing with the lying. You call at 5PM for a spot that night and you can tell they're trying to decide whether to let it go for the Passport price or hang on to it one more hour until they close at 6PM and someone...  more Hide 1 Reply

        Kemptville Kids We have had PA since 2005 and have never had a problem with the parks. We would phone ahead and see if there was availability. If they were full, we called another park. If they had space, we reserved. No trying to decide, it was yes or no on availability...  more

        PennyPA We've never had that problem. Of course we don't wait until 5:00 to make a reservation; we're usually inot camp by 3. And in this day and age, you're going to find that you have to make reservations in advance more often than not.

        Halfloaf I've been full time for almost a year and have had no problems living a "no reservations" lifestyle.
      • WES23
        Halfloaf As I said, the problem isn't that the site isn't available. The problem is the hemming and hawwing and conniving. It's just not a spirit that I need to invite into my life.

      Jim&PattyE PA is not for everyone. It works for me. KOA is more expensive even with the 10% discount but they are located most places you might want to go. They also have more consistent amenities. Some are now showing their age, however. KOA is no longer a guarante...  more Hide 2 Replies

      Birdie I hate books. I much prefer the app. You can look at the state you are in and it makes it very visual what has PA. Then you know if it is ‘their high’ season, it probably isn’t going to be available or very restrictive. But that’s okay with me too. I trav...  more

      Glen & Margie As we travel I have never been refused a site, I call and let them know up front I am PA member then ask if they have a site for me and they have always said yes. It never hurts to ask the worst that can happen is they my say no.

    How many miles a day does everyone do? I can do about 220 miles, and then I'm toast. That's about four hours, what with stopping for diesel, walking the dog, and either grocery shopping or stopping for lunch.

        LarandSus We had an informal 2 day minimum stop rule. I've started thinking recently that a 3 day minimum would be better. Unless, of course, we find ourselves in a place that really isn't suitable for us.

      John and Mary Beth We are not into the marathon drives anymore. The trip is supposed to be enjoyable. We leave the campground mid morning and try to be at the destination by mid afternoon. This makes for a much more enjoyable trip. We are retired and not in any hurry.

      Bill Joyce (and Diane Melde) I was talking to my wife about this thread and she reminded me that we don't set up as much when only doing one overnight. That means we have less to do in the morning when we leave.  Some people require hours to set up and tear down, while we have d...  more
