Keep in mind, out of all the useless fees we get stuck paying in life, this one actually goes to the up-keep of the parks we enjoy camping in.

New York does not charge the park entry fee if camping. They also have deal for residents over 62 - Free entry to the park on weekdays.

The last time I camped in a New York state park they charged $2.75 to cover the reservation system. All campers paid this fee whether they used the reservation system or not. Is that still in place? Raz

The way rates in some state parks are going might benefit the private campgrounds that offer full hookups at rates equal to the Wisconsin rates you quoted. I stayed a week at a first rate campground in South Carolina last September with full hookups, large sites and a great pool for a lot less than that Wisconsin rate !!! They even threw in a free night because I stayed a week, no pet charges, no entrance fees or reservation fees!!!

I don't believe so, at least when you pay at the gate without a reservation. If they do, it is buried in the regular campground rate at Letchworth State Park, the last NY campground I stayed at - $23.75 for an electric only site in 2014.

New York also added a $5 out of state fee a while back. Vermont did the same thing the following year. I guess these guys talk to each other. Raz

I think New Mexico has some of the best rates - $8.00 - $10.00 for dry camping & $14.00 - $18.00 for hookups. $4.00 - $8.00 for hookups with the Annual Pass ($225.00 for non residents).

They also don't charge an entry fee when camping.

Raz, Try this website for more info: campadk.com. It covers most New York State Parks in and around the north country Adirondacks.

For fantastic discounts at federal recreation facilities (National Parks), if you are 62 or older check into a "Senior Pass".
A very low ($10 if memory serves) one time lifetime fee gets you amazing camping discounts plus free entry to any park service facility. The free entry applies to senior driver and the passengers of his vehicle upon entry to park. GREAT VALUE !!
Available by mail or at any National Park.

Come to British Columbia where for the most part fees are reasonable..

There are over 1,000 Protected Areas in the BC Parks system, 340 Campgrounds with a total of 11,075 campsites and 2767km of hiking trails.. Only a couple of campgrounds with electricity and most have central sani-stations and potable water.. But the locations are grand..

Here is a link to everything you need to know about where they are and how to get there.. BC Parks - Province of British Columbia

And Wikipedia has a map showing where they are too.. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...ovincial_Parks

And for all of you in BC and Canada - "Staycations" are the rage and for our southern friends your $$'s go sooo much further up here ;-)

Hope to see you on in a BC Park this year.. ;-)

Camping in the West is much cheaper than East of the Rocky Mountain Staes, if you go to BLM, NF, or COE camp grounds it generally less than $20 per night and half that if you have the senior card. You have to put up without hookups but that is why most of use buy self contained trailers. Almost all of these campgrounds have toilets and a water source, from primitive to modern. We have stayed in some very nice campgrounds that the water source was compromised for as low a $2.50 a night. Most of the Federal camp grounds we camp at cost $5-8 dollars a night. You can also boondock on most federal land if you know where to go for free. Camping can be very inexpensive in the West if you learn how and where and are willing to compromise with the facilities available.

State parks

We have been on the road since new years and camped mostly in state parks for the beauty and economy
Tennessee is favorite ( with geezer pass under $15) and texas next, costlier but the yearly pass givs free daily admission and four nites at half price
Louisiana and mississipp were also quite reasonable

Whatever the case, if anyone is 62 and older, a national park pass can be purchased for a one time fee of $10.00. Gets you a discount at all national parks all over the country!

In Indiana, you can go to any public library and get a pass to enter any state park or forest for free. Then your campground pass gets u in and out. I paid $23/nignt for electric spot in Brown Co State Park last Oct.

I'm a proud Oregonian. Years ago, when we first started the lottery in our state, citizens decided how the income was going to be spent. We voted to support our State Parks! We have some of the very best state parks in the nation and very reasonable costs. There are NO out of state residence fees either. I encourage everyone to come camp in Oregon and gamble like crazy!
