I've paid everything from $0.00 to $80.00 (ouch - a KOA concrete slab in Ontario where there was nothing else). My average for a 138 day trip in 2012 was $24.99. A spreadsheet of the campgrounds & $ is here.

So far on my current trip (75 days) I'm averaging a bit more at $25.17.

While I sometimes stay in dry campgrounds, particularly in National Parks, most sites have at least electric hookups. Since I usually only stay at a site for a day or two, I rarely need or use sewers, but water is handy.

Corp of engineers campgrounds are always a plus and with a senior pass, usually under $20.

I never did fully understand why deals would be given to seniors. As a senior I will be WAY better able to afford the full price, compared to when I was a young adult with young kids. Seems kinda bass ackwards to me, but you do see it in many places, not just some campgrounds.

Most seniors camp without children and a lot are on fixed income pensions, thus the need for more socialistic approach of some sort of relief.

Seriously, most are on fixed incomes? I know of next to no seniors of fixed incomes, the vast majority have their retirement savings to go on. Maybe it is a regional thing? Most seniors I know are way better off now, than when they were younger.

Actually RIFs and LIFs are also fixed …… there is always a minimum - one may of coarse take more however take too much at once and you end up in an undesirable tax bracket …..
