RVA FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Who may join this membership?
•    The general public cannot join RVA Camping Programs. Only members of resorts affiliated with RVA or organizations/clubs approved by RVA may join. This ensures that the RVA Affiliated Resorts will host our members according to the rules of the RVA Affiliation Agreement. This also ensures that our members will be greeted with courtesy when using the camping system.


What does it cost to join RVA Camping Programs?
•    Your Home Resort determines the initial membership fee. You will be billed for your annual dues on the anniversary date of your joining the RVA Camping Affiliation.

 

 How long does it take to receive my camping membership card and when can I start making reservations?

•    Your permanent membership card should reach you within 14 days from the time your application is received by RVA, 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 RVA Camping Program by using the Temporary Membership card and calling reservations at 1–800–934–3443.


 Do I have to always make reservations in advance?

•    If you wish to be guaranteed a site and only pay the RVA Camping 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 RVA Affiliated Resorts will allow drive-in members the RVA Camping rate of $9.00 per night. You really need to have a reservation. Our Affiliated Resorts will accept reservations the same day as your arrival if there is a site available.



Why do you charge a $20.00 “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.


What happens to my Membership if my Home Resort ends its affiliation with RVA Camping Program?  

•    If your Home Resort ends their affiliation with the RVA Camping Program you will be asked to find a new Home Resort that is affiliated with RVA Camping Program.  RVA will give you options for a new Home Resort and your original Home Resort will usually have options for you also.


 As a member of several different camping affiliations am I able to 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 visit.


How do I receive updates?
•    RVA’s online site, www.rvacamping.com has current updates, an RV community, RV Directory and other resources. We also send member newsletters in between guide publications.
