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.
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.
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.
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.
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!

All further Passport America Membership Materials such as Passport America Membership Sales Packages, Temp ID Cards, P.A. Brochures, signs ("Members Welcome" & "Save 50% On Camping, Ask Me How!") and updated Personal Membership ID Cards are mailed to you A.S.A.P. on a request basis. You can either call toll free (800) 283-7183 or email to place your request. All Passport America Membership Materials cost you NOTHING.
Every Passport America Member is supplied with an ID Card.
