BEWARE! A month or so ago we received an internet invitation to join a new discount camping club, similar to Pass Port America, for a special price of $39 for three years. The name is "RV Park SuperGuide". It sounded legit, and being the trusting souls we are, we took them up on the offer. BIG MISTAKE!! It is a SCAM! We have contacted several campgrounds on our intended path on our way to Gillette, WY, and none have ever heard of this club and will not honor the discount rate. One has even been closed for several years. It appears they copied campground descriptions from some other discount camping system and published them as their own.

Thanks for posting this. If you paid for it with a credit card you should be able to get your money back. The CC company may also be able to prevent others from making the same mistake. They do have a fancy website which makes me wonder why it is still there if the facts are as you present them.

What a scam. Sorry you got taken. Did you purchase it in a park?

I got taken by them too as well as a lot of other good people. Took me 9 months to get 50% back of my $89 fee. It's a total scam.

Just go with Passport America -- avoid the upstarts & unknowns; we've had P.A. since 2001, just renewed last spring for 3 1/2 more years (at a discounted $75 thru end of 2014). We also use Golden Age/Senior Pass (for Federal campgrounds like COE, Nat'l Parks & Forest Service sites), Elks (for community service and RV parking at home & away from home lodge), etc. Be sure to get a good ERS for your RV, as well (like Coach-Net); we got ours thru the RV insurance carrier.

The "problem" with the PA and other camping clubs is that the discounts are only for one or two nights. For monthly stays, the discount did not apply. How it was explained to us (by the only two campgrounds campgrounds that took PA that we have stayed at) was that they would book us in at the regular nightly rate, take the discount off of that and then the next night re-register and charge us for the monthly rates. But the per night monthly rate was cheaper in one place than the PA discount.. the other place worked out to the same price. If we are staying nightly, we hunt down a cheap city/county park to stay in when we don't wallydock. For us, the investment in Don Wright's campground books (I have both) have saved us more than the PA would have because we would have used to so rarely. That is based on how and where we park/camp at. I have bought both books an a book store discount card (Books-a-Million and Barnes & Noble). They only come out every few years so it's not like I pay for them every year. We have been using Wrights books for over 10 years. Now I combine them with some internet sites like The Ultimate US Public Campgrounds Project and US Campgrounds Info as well as my old standby US National Forest Campground Guide. Before you join any camping discount club, you need to look to see if it is in areas where you would be staying and if you will only be staying in those areas short term. Escapees Members get a discount but you usually can't "stack" discounts. So only one discount per stay. I would suggest you get Escapees membership and then see how you travel around while fulltiming. As for the time share type clubs... My opinion of time-shares is very, very, very, very low.

OH MY GOODNESS!! I came so close to signing up for the SuperGuide. Before I clicked to purchase, I thought I would go online to see if there were any negative comments about the program. That's when I came across this website. Thanks for the sharing. I have just joined Escapees and I can hardly wait to dig into other topics of interest.
