Seasonal Sites

I hear people on here talking about seasonal sites all the time. Is this something unique in the eastern states? I am in Utah and have never heard of them.

Yes it is nice to park the camper in one spot for the summer. With gas at $4.00 a gal and the toll booths hitting you over the head it's like having a summer house.

I've seen season rates down here in Texas and in some of the northeastern states... I assume they're available elsewhere too but I can't confirm that. Maybe Seann will pipe in.

Some places call them permanent sites, others seasonal sites. This will be the 5th season our TT is parked on a seasonal site in Wisconsin. We can go there anytime we want although water is turned on from April 15 - October 15. If we want to haul it out to go somewhere we can. Yearly fee covers site rental, water, inground septic tank pumped out every 2 weeks, winter storage on site. Metered electric is paid monthly. Some people really like seasonal camping, others don't understand why anybody would want to do it. Ten years ago when the kids were younger I wouldn't consider it. Now for us it's like licamp stated above 'it's like having a summer house'. Except ours has wheels.

Sounds like a great idea to me. I'll have to look into it further. Maybe go up north during the summer months and stay south in the winter -- where it's a heck of a lot milder.

Wow... that's not far from me at all if you're where I think you are.

Here is a pic of our summer lot. You can't see the river but it is just in front of the Jayco.

We are doing something a bit unique. We are taking a regular camping spot at a campground that we like, and booking it for three weeks at a time this summer. We will have to move sites once to do this, but it allows us to have the seasonal access without a long term commitment. We usually travel, but this summer we have a new business and DH will be able to work during the day and commute 40 minutes to the campground right on the lake each night.. So I get a holiday.. And he gets to keep working..lol.. But I think it is the best option for us this year )
