Harvest Hosts
« on: September 16, 2020, 04:44:48 PM »
We've occasionally seen posts by members who participate in Harvest Hosts. Today curiosity had me sign up for their freebie guide and I received links to several goodies via email. Looks like a pretty good deal for anyone who might stay at one of their member locations more than a couple of nights:

Much more choice out east. We couldn't find spots in places we were going so didn't renew after first year and we only used it once. I think it's a great idea though.

We signed up their first year. We tried to use it once. We were directed to a field by the winery, the tires started sinking in the ground. I didn't stop long enough to sink. That was the only time in a year that we were near a location to use it. We didn't renew.

We used them 17 evenings and only three were just okay while mixing up our stays at Cabela, with free dump and freshwater and regular state and private campgrounds.  And we stayed at some mighty nice ones and treated as nice as any regular campground. Of course we like back roads and a lot are off the major highways and takes a little extra driving to get to some off of most interstates.  We supplemented our grocery needs at several sites.  We purchased at a small cost some of our Christmas presents that's not found in your normal shopping outlets anywhere in the states.

  The most unusual one was a mushroom farm, which was 440 acres of assorted greenhouses too.  Farms like apple and berry farms provided  additional fresh product. They were actually a saving grace during the national and state park shutdowns across the country and welcomed with open arms.  And yes they are not as many out west just because of the open spaces with less population. There was never a problem with firing up the generator to cool our meager TT down from traveling during the day. And in the evening we would shut things down and sit outside under the stars in piece all by ourselves.  We figured we spent about half what we normally would at a regular campground and actually got something in return except a place to hook up to electricity.

Be careful they can be expensive! We stayed at a winery just off I-90 in NY. Went in to have a tasting, then they had a high school trio playing music in the dining hall, so we had a little something to eat. Liked the wine so we bought a few bottles. That free night cost us over $80!  :-\  :D

Sounds like you made out pretty cheap,, drinks, night of entertainment, a meal and No risk of any DUI :D ;) KOA only gives you a few pancakes in selected locations.

That is still a lot cheaper than the "free" parking at the casinos my dear wife likes.
