My family and I are looking into several camping resorts. Has anyone had any dealings with American Campground Resorts?
They do have a awsome amount of listed campgrounds, but the testimonials are "bare boned".
Any information on this organization is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hello MiSmitty and welcome aboard! cool.gif
Am not familiar with the Resort system you're researching, but did look into a couple others last year. Colorado River Adventures and Thousand Trails (and another that slips my mind). ALL wanted a fair chunk-of-change to join, plus one STILL had to make advance reservations, no guarantees for a nice campsite when YOU wanted to camp, time limits for length of stay...

Wow...to us that sounded just like what we normally wrestle with. laugh.gif

Best advise: talk to other members AND visit a couple of their parks. Don't be pressured to part with your $$$. We were immediately approached at a 'member park' we stayed at for free (yes, listened to hours of marketing)...by others who wanted to 'sell' their memberships, even at huge losses. ohmy.gif

Thank you Foster Imposters,

I do appreciate your comments. I have learned that the organizations name commonly goes by AOR. But either way, I agree with your advise.

Thanks again,
MiSmitty
