1. Plan Your Routes

One of the best ways to up your fuel efficiency and keep money in your pocket is by planning your routes ahead of time.  You can find scenic stops along the way, or plan a straight shot to your campground, even scout excursions into the local towns or other nearby activities.  The more you know where you want to go, the less time you’ll spend trying to get there and the more you’ll save in the long run.

2. Book Ahead

Some campgrounds offer discounts for booking during the off-season, or even making reservations ahead of time.  Call or book online through the campground’s website, or a camping service.  There are even campground clubs you can join that offer premium discounts for members as well as exclusive, last minute, offers or promotions!

3. Routine Maintenance

Keeping a well maintained fifth wheel, travel trailer, or motorhome may seem like a heavy up-front cost, but it pays off over the years.  Don’t neglect the routine maintenance that your camper needs and be sure to work with your local dealer on any upgrades or features you may want to include.

4. Bring Your Own

Anything you can bring with you, instead of paying for on-site, will save you big!  Often campground general stores mark up their prices because they are the only option for forgotten items for a good distance, so try to make a checklist of everything you’ll need and limit the things you buy on-site.  Firewood is a big expense for unprepared campers, but some facilities prohibit bringing your own, so be sure to check ahead of time.

5. Off Season

It’s worth repeating that camping during the off-season, or even during the week, is going to be less expensive than the busy times of year.  Try to plan your vacation for times when the campgrounds won’t be as crowded, so you can have your pick of the spaces, and save a few bucks on the site as well.  Some campsites will offer discounts for extended stays, as well, so consider taking a long vacation to a place you love, instead of trying to get out a dozen times a year on the weekend.
