Even if a person has a Resorts of Distinction membership and is in the Schroon River area, they can't use Adirondack Adventures RV Resorts campground because that specific time has been blocked off so that members of this specific campground can use the park without fear that there may not be an available campsite.
The Fourth of July is one of the dates when only members are allowed to reserve time and use Adirondack Adventures RV Resorts @ Schroon River. The last weekend in September is also blacked out by our home campground. Eric made reservations at two other campgrounds in the La Pine area using our Passport America 50 percent off membership.
We stopped at Newberry RV Park about three miles down the road from Cascade Meadows RV Resort on Thursday. This is one of the campgrounds we would move to as we tour the La Pine area before our appointment with AM Solar next week. Please click on Facilities Link: All the gray on the map is gravel. The green strips are the only grass a person sees in this campground. Half off camping at Newberry RV Park is $16.50 per night. Eric and I have to pack up the motor home, move it and the Jeep three miles for one night's camping, in what is essentially a gravel parking lot.
I wasn't thrilled with our future accommodations. @ Newberry RV Park. Eric wasn't either. So, Eric went to speak with Lilian, the woman in charge of sales at Cascade Meadows RV Resort to negotiate discounted camping fees for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.
Eric read about negotiating campground fees on
RV Forums. Our Resorts of Distinction
membership doesn't cover the extra three nights
There are plenty of empty sites here at
Cascade Meadows RV Resort.
So, Eric asked for a discount to camp on our site for three extra nights, fairly sure that it would not be producing income during that time. Lilian agreed and we pay 52% of the off the street campground fee for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Yay!
It only cost us $3.50/night to stay here instead of going to the gravel campground. What a deal!
