Stays at Golf Courses is an upsell too, so I assume All Access includes that too.

I use the Android app. It doesn't (regularly) try to upsell like the website does.

This morning I managed to get onto Harvest Hosts website and they're having a Boxing Day Sale. I purchased a 1 year All Access membership for $125 as opposed to their regular price of $179 which I believe is a great price!

Just make sure that when you're signing up they display a code in the top banner of their website; simply copy it into your checkout menu and you get the discounted price.

We have calculated a rough route for our trip down to the southern states in January and figure we can easily cut out 1 or more likely 2 hotel stays; at approximately $120 per stay it'll pay itself off in our first night of free camping.

Safe Travels...

the All membership includes harvest host, plus boondockers, plus golf courses. We find it helpful to view the route first and see what is available. Many spots have a calendar where you can see availability, others ask you to call. We usually try boondockers first because many boondock sites don’t charge unless you ask for water or electricity. Then we try golf courses (check to ensure they don’t require you to purchase a round of golf, some do most don't so they are generally free most of the time and great as they are usually quiet!), then we check museums / attractions, then we check harvest host.

Not all harvest hosts ask for your patronage, but most kind of hint at it. Most of the time we buy a wine tasting for $15 or $20 and leave it at that. Sometimes it’s a farm and we really don’t want to buy goat milk, so we politely pass or sometimes offer a donation of $10 to $20.

ALL of the above are cheaper and better (in most cases) than staying at a Good Sam or other RV park.

It is a good program and worth the $$ if you use it a few times a year. Good luck!

Thanks so much for all of this information, nice to know some of the "unwritten" rules. We're looking forward to using this service. we thought it may be especially useful when we're travelling which we do a lot of. Up until now we'll stay in a paid park (which is a waste as we get there in the evening, we generally do not setup and leave first thing in the morning); we've also stayed at WalMarts, truck stops, Cracker Barrrels etc but we've had a couple of anxious events at these places and some are really noisy!

Not sure if we can make it to the rally this year but working on it and hoping we can change our chances to good.

Hi, richnel13. The All Access Plan is one of the offerings provided by Harvest Hosts. If you go to Harvest Hosts website and click on the “Plans” link at the top of the homepage, you’ll see a comparison with their Classic and Harvest Hosts+Boondockers Welcome plans. They all have a “Join Now” link to click. Hope that helps.

Update on Harvest Hosts app - Thusfar I have managed to book quite a few places to stay during our first two weeks in the USA. Actually quite an easy app to use and seems to work well in terms of messaging and booking with hosts. I like it!

Now we'll see how the whole system works when I start actually using it but i'M SURE IT'LL BE GREAT!

For anyone interested, I have started a page of photos of the 2024 Dome Rock Gathering​​​​​​​.* I'll add to it as the week continues.

Oldie but goodie. Jon, I didn't see a single picture of you from today's Qtzsite group. C'mon, guy, get out that tripod and self timer and show us your rig.

We're here at Dome Rock as well parked close to Elowen. I see Jon is here and a couple of others. Looks like the sun is trying very hard to make an appearance but the clouds are putting up a real battle.
