Fulltime Families Family Friendly Campground Directory Boasts over 340 Campgrounds

Kimberly No Comments

The FtF Family Friendly Campground Directory now contains over 340 campgrounds who will waive the “kid tax” (additional person fee) for Fulltime Families Members, nationwide.

Look for this plaque at Family Friendly Campgrounds across the country

The Family Friendly initiative was started two years ago, in an effort to keep camping affordable for families.  Many times a nightly rate can soar to an additional 25% – 50% when campgrounds charge separately for over two occupants.  The FtF Family Friendly Campground Directory seeks to connect families to the independent campgrounds across the country who value their business and are willing to waive any additional fees.

I have to admit I was a little skeptical at first about the FtF campground directory. Not that it wasn’t a good idea, but that we wouldn’t use very much since we usually stay at a lot of Thousand Trails.

However this month we are in a state that has no TT and I was having trouble finding anything under 700 for a month. Finally I was about to give up and then I checked the FtF campground directory. Found one that was about 10 miles farther out from where I was looking so no big deal there. I called and the guy told me it was 450 + 70 flat for electricity. That’s not terribly bad for us.

Then I asked him about any extra costs and he asked how many people we had. I told him 7 and he said one moment let me calculate your extra costs (the charged for anything over 4 people). I told him that I was a FtF member and he quickly said there was no extra charges for us.

So now that I just saved $150 at this campground I’m a believer in the FtF campground directory!!

Thanks Fulltime Families!!

FtF Builds Directory of Family Friendly Certified Campgrounds

Kimberly No Comments

When you pull into a campground, do you sometimes get that uneasy feeling that your family, and specifically your kids aren’t welcome?  Have you ever pulled in to what you thought was a $30 per night site, only to find that with the “additional person fees” (sometimes referred to by family campers as a “kid tax”)  your rate will be $50 or more for the night!

You Asked For..

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a dedicated directory of campgrounds that welcome your family and appreciate your camping dollars.  Wouldn’t it be awesome to have a list of nationwide campgrounds that are kid friendly? Campgrounds that are safe?  Campgrounds that have accessible wifi? Campgrounds that have amenities for your children?

After months of asking our members what mattered most when choosing a campground you told us and we have built all those features into our directory.
