Do I have to change the way I do business to accommodate Passport America members?
Each Passport America Participating Campground continues to operate as it has in the past. Simply provide a 50% discount off of your REGULAR NIGHTLY RATE on a SPACE AVAILABILITY BASIS. You may accept reservations for Passport America cardholders or simply accept them on a drive up accommodation basis. Passport America is easily customizable to your campground's business.

Please call (800) 283-7183 and speak to one of our helpful Passport America Member Support Reps for suggestions on how you can provide the discount in a manner that works perfectly for your campground's business.
Am I obligated to give a 50% discount off of my already discounted weekly and monthly rates?
NO! The 50% discount for Passport America Cardholders applies only to your REGULAR NIGHTLY RATE. Weekly and monthly rates are usually already discounted. Giving a Passport America 50% discount on your weekly and monthly rates would be considered double discounting. You may give a discount on these already discounted rates if you decided to do so, yet Passport America does not obligate you to.
How soon will information about my park be distributed to Passport America members after my contract is approved?
After your Contract is approved and processed, we will immediately begin to add your information to all the areas where Participating Campgrounds are listed with Passport America: website, mobile apps, updates (printed supplement for the current directory and online) P.A. brochures, complete listings for information packets and renewals and the Passport America International Camping Directory.
How often is a new Passport America International Directory printed?
Passport America International Camping Directories are usually ready for distribution to members and participating campgrounds by January of each year. In order to insure your information will be included in the next edition of the directory, please make sure that your new contract is sent to Passport America by August. Be reassured that your information will still be distributed to Passport America members via updates (the printed supplement for the directory and online version) if your contract is not submitted to Passport America in time for the directory publishing date.
Do I receive the same commissions if someone joins online?
YES! Regardless of HOW someone joins Passport America, as long as it is via your referral (Campground ID or Name) we will send you the referral commission accordingly (1 yr. $22, 2 yrs. $25 and 3 yrs. $75). Click here for more details about online referrals!
Will I receive a proof copy of my Passport America International Camping Directory page listing before it is printed?
Yes! Each year, approximately a couple of months prior to the publishing date, you will be sent a copy of your Passport America International Camping Directory Page. This gives you the opportunity to update and change your information prior to printing. All information will go to the publisher "as is" if no changes are received.
How many of my park's brochures should I send to Passport America for the FREE brochure distribution?
You can send any amount of your park's brochures to Passport America for FREE distribution at all RV Shows and Rallies across the US that Passport America attends. Simply mail your brochures to:

Simply check the member's ID card for name and valid date to make sure the membership is active then proceed with giving the discounted rate.
