When you consider that an average campground nightly stay ranges between about $35 – $55 a night these days, we feel that our average turned out to be pretty good. Even being extremely conservative and estimating a nightly camping fee of $30, we still came in at just over half of that.
We have a few camping memberships that have helped us save on camping fees. But the two biggest factors that contributed to our overall campground savings are:
– Our Thousand Trails membership. We purchased a Zone Camping Pass before we hit the road in 2014. Then upgraded our membership a few months later. – Our off-grid system with lithium batteries and solar panels. Installing this system in May 2018 enabled us to boondock more extensively and comfortably.
