This is the best deal ever for those who like to camp a lot, travel for work, kids travel sports teams, travel for fun, or those who want to live the full-time RV life. There are over 80 campgrounds (mostly in coastal and some mid-west states) all family oriented (amenities like pools, golf, putt putt, spas, game rooms, fishing, theme nights, playgrounds, and more).
