If you’re a camping aficionado, then you have probably looked into purchasing a camping membership. A members-only campground is exclusive and open only to those who pay their regular dues. Membership campgrounds tend to be clean and include lots of amenities — which make seem perfect for those who go camping regularly. Before jumping in and paying a membership fee, though, you need to ask yourself if it’s worth it.
There is an alternative. Many campgrounds, like Kampgrounds of America, offer discount cards or rewards programs. These value cards can also be purchased annually. However, they tend to be less expensive, allow for more variety in your camping options and provide many of the same benefits you enjoy by purchasing a camping membership.
There is a difference between a camping membership and camping discount or rewards programs. Camping memberships are typically members-only campgrounds. Camping rewards programs or discount cards, like what we offer at KOA, provide special benefits to those who join. Unlike camping memberships, KOA campgrounds are open to everyone, with or without joining KOA’s Value Kard Rewards program.
