Yes, many good points, and I get that they'd want to charge if you bring your kid's friends, or for adult friends that join , but a family should be included in the rate. And I feel that not paying it won't get the message across...there needs to be a clear message sent in my opinion! I encourage everyone to e -mail and question those parks that you pass over because they charge these extra fees for kids, dogs, boat launching, etc... Maybe they'll pay attention!

Just tell them.. These rant pets these are my children...!

One way we have found to save major money and stay in some cute places is to stay in the local town campground. Many small towns have these with water and electric and I have been charged on average about $15.00 flat fee.
We stumbled across one by accident and now I google the towns that we are travelling through.. And if I find a good one.. That's where we stay.

Our local (the few there are) charge a higher rate for their 'kids free' camping compared to the lower cost campgrounds that charge extra but wind up the same cost in the end. (When we camp "local" we tend to have one or more of our grandkids with us)

Although this topic may be a WHOLE 'nother thread...

we are one of the fortunate *few* who have a 'membership' resort campground "local" to us. By the time we pay for eight nights at the local "nice" cg with free kids/pets or 12 nights at the state park, it's paid for our membership fee's for the year. Camping, depending if we are local or traveling, runs around $10 a night, but can be limited to one-three weeks for a stay then a week before you can return to the same cg. If by chance you also have an opportunity to join a "membership" campground that you actually *enjoy* camping at, make sure you purchase a "used" contract. The one we go to affords activities, but we can hike/bike/etc also (win-win for granparents anyhow). PM me if you want more info (maybe I should create a thread for this topic?...Hmmm)

We have been seeing something called a use fee at different places. I have never really questioned what this is for and just go ahead and pay it. Its something like two more dollars and for the whole time you are staying???
