To membership or to not membership

A friend of mine is telling me I should join the Elks. (Can you see me running around with an Elk hat on or what ever they wear? Just kidding )

Anyway, He was telling me that most cities with Elk buildings have RV parking available along side. They offer, in this area, one of the best Steak dinners every Friday at an extremely reasonable price, etc. etc. He went on and on.

Is anyone out there an Elk? Would it be a good idea to become an Elk mostly for their RV parking benefit?

BTW, I know they do a lot of good for the youth in the community.

What do you Elks think?

Mike,

There's a complete list of ELKS RV place here.

If you're going to join mainly for the use of the RV parks and dinning rooms I would suggest you contact several lodges. All dues are not create equal, depending on the lodge.

Sign me an ex-elk.

I am aware of one American Legion post that has 14 acres of RV Dry Camping available here in San Diego County. It has a dump station and showers available. There might be other posts around the country with similar availabilities. That might be one reason for a Veteran to join that organization.

Mike,

I'm an Elk. And Yes, I think it is worth it. Not only can you then park in their lot which may or may not have hook ups, some Elk Lodges also have actual campgrounds. There is an Elks campground in Florence, OR, Lincoln City, OR which I'm staying at after the Oregon Gathering and then I also know of an Elks campground in Fergus Falls, MN.

The Elks publish four books by region that have their Lodges listed, if camping is available at the lodge or their campground, if they have one. You can also obtain a directory for Canadian Elks lodges. Most parking lot camping appears to be first come first served but some do take reservations.

I've been an Elk for the longest time...I do it cause they have the best dance floors at the lodges and still have live bands at some. But we also utilize the free (or for a nominal fee )
parking space we can find at most locations all across the country.

But be careful of some of the initiation rituals...Have you ever ridden a goat?

I think a number of the philanthropic groups have RV pads at their lodges. I live fairly close to a Moose Lodge and I see RVs parked in the back areas quite a bit.
