FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I stay at the same park consecutively under different memberships?
No. The rights to reciprocal use are not combined between different memberships. No park is obligated to host a member under different affiliations for a member’s consecutive visits.

What Happens If My Home Resort Ends It's AOR Affiliation?
If your Home Resort ends their affiliation with AOR you will be asked to find a new Home Resort that is affiliated with AOR. AOR will give you options for a new Home Resort and your original Home Resort will usually have options for you also.

Why Do You Charge A $20 No-show Fee?
This is a courtesy to our Affiliated Resorts. When we make a reservation for one of our members, our Affiliated Resorts reserve a site for this reservation. If the member does not show up nor call to cancel their site, it sits empty. The Affiliated Resort is not able to sell that site to another camper. They must be compensated for reserving that empty site.

Do I Have To Make Advance Reservations?
If you wish to be guaranteed a site and only pay the AOR rate you must make reservations in advance. We recommend making reservations as far in advance as possible. Sites are reserved on a first call, first served basis. Very few, if any AOR Affiliated Resorts will allow drive-in members the AOR rate of $9.00 per night. Our Affiliated Resorts will accept reservations the same day as your arrival if there is a site available.

How Long Does It Take To Start My Membership?
Your permanent membership card should reach you within 14 days from the time your application is received by AOR, if your application is completely and correctly filled out and the membership fee has been paid. You may start making reservations upon the day you enroll in AOR by using the Temporary Membership card and calling reservations at 800-934-3443.

What Does It Cost?
Your Home Resort determines the initial membership fee. You will be billed for your AOR annual dues on the anniversary date of your joining the AOR Affiliation.

Who Can Join AOR?
The general public cannot join AOR. Only members of resorts that are affiliated with AOR may join. This ensures that the AOR Affiliated Resorts will host AOR members according to the rules of the AOR Affiliation Agreement. This also ensures that our members will be greeted with courtesy when using the AOR camping system.
