Well, I am just about over this place! Sorry, but this is going to be a rant! We have been at our campground since the beginning of November, fulltime! What we are learning is that some, ok most, campgrounds charge extra for more than two people. We have three – so that means we are being charged extra. We have been paying them a weekly rate because of the job/money situation that we have been in. We have not had the money to pay them a full month at once.
Lets just do a little math here.
Weekly rate, with 3 people is $250
Monthly rate, with 3 people is $748
This has all water and electric included!!
We have been here on a weekly rate for 7 wks, at $250/wk = $1750
If we had paid monthly, it would have been $1500
It would have saved us $250, that we needed badly!
When husband went to pay a month (we finally had it), he asked them how much. The guy in the front told him it was $650. He totally did not charge us for our son. We were like, OK, well maybe that is for Christmas. I mean, I know another camper here that has 3 kids, and they have not charged him for two months for the three kids.
Hubby went into the office last night to pick up the mail and the guy (owner we guess) told him that we owe him $100 for son. I know it is not a lot, but they could have told us, “Look, we understand that WE didn’t charge you the right rate. We know that you have been paying WEEKLY for almost two months. We will not charge you this month, but next month it is going to be $750.” They have not once stopped to see if maybe they could help us out ANY to help save us a little money. You know, like charging half the month one week and the rest the next week. Something!! Hubby told him thank you for taking our sons Christmas from him. That was all we had to buy son a little something with this year. This is not the first time they have done this. They told us one week, we are not going to charge for son and your price, with tax is $200. When we went in to pay, they charged us for him.
Since I was in the customer service industry for so long, it just makes sense that one would not come back and charge someone extra (after they paid) when they are trying to be long-term! We are on the hunt for a new campground now. Do I really want to move? No, not really. But I do think we can find one that might be a little less expensive than this one. Pretty bad to since they wont allow DSL internet in here. Yup, we are hooked up through a phone line and our internet sucks!!
That’s all today folks. My rant is over and I just need to go watch my soap opera that I taped. That might get me in a better mood!! Have a great day and thanks for reading.
