I was really steamed at the Lakeside Park in Livingston, La. They advertise they have pull-thru sites and are a Passport America park. When you get there and want to use your Passport, they then told me they only have 4 sites available (the worst in the park) and that they were all back in. We were towing a jeep and certainly did not want to unhook just for the night. I ended up paying the Good Sam rate, but was very disappointed in their attitude towards Passport America.
The park is very nice, but they should be ashamed to state they are a Passport America park, it is obviously only a come on for them.

Actually we are fulltimers and I do use PPA when ever we can. I have found some PPA campgounds that are really great. You just have to use Park Reviews and see the restrictions in the PPA website for the campground.

There was one campground that we went to that gave us a full week at PPA prices. This was an excellent campground. It was Wilderness RV Resort, Silver Springs FL.

Sorry. I didn't mean to imply that Passport America isn't a good program for fulltimers, only that it is the ONLY membership that makes sense for most people who aren't fulltimers, as well as for fulltimers.

We have been fulltimers for 10 years now, and our Passport America membership has more than paid for itself every one of those years. But even if you are on the road for only a few weeks a year you will almost certainly come out money ahead with a membership.
