You simply sign up at Camperscard.com or HarvestHosts.com. The camping discount program is free to campgrounds around the U.S. When a campground joins the network, they simply list their location on the platform, along with a unique discount or perk they offer. The member campgrounds essentially receive free marketing to Harvest Hosts and Boondockers Welcome members.
Harvest Hosts, Bondockers Welcome, and CampersCard members can also recommend campgrounds to be included in the program. Simply add the campground’s information, and the CampersCard team will take care of the rest.
The program is offered to the 800,000+ Harvest Hosts and Boondockers Welcome members and also the general public. The cost for RVers to join is $39 per year. If you are already a Harvest Hosts or Boondockers Welcome member, you will receive a 25% discount.
Once you are a member, you can get discounts at campgrounds, as well as greater deals on camping gear, entertainment, and theme park adventures. Card members can also get exclusive campground perks and experiences.
How CampersCard Differs from Other Campground Discount Programs?
Campgrounds sign up for free. All they have to provide is a perk for their guests, which is chosen by the location. Members receive the perks simply by staying at the campgrounds, and using their CampersCard when making a reservation.
This card provides benefits to both the campground and the members. The program’s aim is to simplify the search for a campground and provide RVers with many more amazing choices.
“Let’s elevate your camping experience and connect you with great campgrounds,” Holland says.
Will My Harvest Hosts or Boondockers Welcome Membership Include The CampersCard Program?
Joel Holland and his team incorporated Boondockers Welcome into Harvest Hosts, so I’m sure the more than 800,000 members can expect good things from Holland and his company.
What Other Benefits Will the CampersCard Program Offer?
For CampersCard campgrounds, the great thing about the program is the campground can choose what benefit they would like to offer. That perk could be:
Early or late check-in
A free campsite upgrade (when available)
A free bundle of firewood
Discounts on the campground’s amenities
Campgrounds store deals
Reduced prices at amusement parks or nearby attractions
Other discounts on RV or vacation-related purchases.
Can I Make Reservations Directly On The CampersCard Website?
Campground reservations will still have to be made via direct contact with the campground. There will be a direct link to the location’s website on CampersCard.com. There you can find contact information and the preferred way to reserve your campsite (either by phone or on their website).
For RVers, a CampersCard membership will give you access to all available locations and details to assist you in determining where to stay. This will be valuable as you look for budget-friendly places.
Other RV Campground Discount Programs
Other campground discount programs often require a fee for the campground to join or require the campground to give guests specific perks. The CampersCard program, is free for the campgrounds, so they can give the perks of their choosing.
Also, there isn’t a program fee they pay to the discount program, that gets tacked onto your nightly stay. In other words, it’s a true discount with real perks
