Winnebago owners can save on KOA, Passport America, CampScanner, and more.
By: GoLife Staff

Booking your RV camping reservations doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive. There are multiple great companies with memberships that include special savings on your bookings as well as access to filterable lists of campgrounds to make planning easier.

You can save even more on your RV camping reservations with a GoLife Perks membership! For only $39.95 per year, this savings program – exclusive to Winnebago owners – includes discounted (or free!) membership to some of the most popular options for saving on campgrounds, RV parks, and even unique boondocking options.

Remember, if you are planning to stay at a campground during peak travel times or in a popular tourist destination (especially national parks!), booking in advance is recommended. However, having some options for last-minute overnights (like Harvest Hosts and CampScanner) can really help when plans change … or you take a more spontaneous trip!

Never stayed at a KOA?

Most KOAs also have a general store on-site with necessities like firewood and propane refills.

3. Passport America

4. Boondockers Welcome

For RVers who love to meet new people while traveling, Boondockers Welcome is a unique membership program that connects RV travelers with people who will allow them to park on their private property overnight. With more than 3,500 hosts across the U.S. and Canada, this is also a great option to have as a backup when campgrounds are booked. 

Each listing should provide details on the size of RV they can accommodate and any other important notes. Some hosts even offer hookups! You can also read the reviews left from RVers who have stayed there before.

GoLife Perks members receive 25% off the $79 yearly Boondockers Welcome membership. (Note: There is also an option for 25% off a combination membership with Harvest Hosts and Boondockers Welcome.)

5. Harvest Hosts 

If you are looking for unique camping opportunities in your RV and don’t mind the occasional dry camping, a Harvest Hosts membership may be a great fit for your travels. RVers who have used this program rave about the wide variety of overnight camping options – with more than 4,000 wineries, farms, museums, breweries, and other unique attractions to choose from.

6. CampersCard

The team at Harvest Hosts created this option for their members who want to stay at campgrounds as well as unique boondocking options. The campgrounds that are part of the CampersCard discount program not only offer savings on nightly rates, but they also provide members with other benefits like early check-in and late check-out. Plus, members receive discounts on gear, entertainment, and even theme parks.

GoLife Perks members receive 20% off the retail price of $39. (Note that this discount is only available to new members and cannot be used by current Harvest Hosts members.)

Having Trouble Finding a Campsite? Try CampScanner!

Avid RVers know that snagging a campsite in the most popular areas, like national parks and major tourist destinations, can be almost impossible during peak times. Reservations usually open for booking months or even half a year in advance, so if you are looking for a last-minute option you are often out of luck. Thankfully, now there is CampScanner!

CampScanner helps you find reservations at sold-out campgrounds – including national parks and state parks. Simply search their database of more than 9,600 campgrounds and create a “scan” to get notified when a spot becomes available. You can also get notified when timed entry permits and day passes become available at popular parks!

You do have to act fast when you receive the notification via text, but this is a great way to actually have a chance at staying at these coveted campgrounds during your RV trip! Plus, it saves you many hours of scouring the internet to see if any spots open up. Win-win.

GoLife Perks members get 20% off new CampScanner subscriptions (which start at $39).

Most RVers have a list of go-to apps and camping memberships they use to plan and book their overnight stays. Having multiple options on hand is key not only when trying to find a campsite during a busy time of year, but also when looking for the best fit for your budget or a stand-out camping experience. 

The Winnebago team is excited to offer you even more savings and resources with a GoLife Perks membership. In addition to discounts on the memberships listed in this article, you can also save on group RV tours and caravans, EcoFlow energy solution products, Michelin Tires, Winnebago apparel, roadside assistance, and more!

Make sure that the discounts offered by the club are ones that you'll actually use. You should also factor in the cost of the membership itself when deciding whether or not a club is right for you.
