Re: Called to re-up my full hookup sites $400 ea. 25% increa
He was shouting.
Indeed, I do believe he was
And I can sympathize. As with many aspects of SOSMP, the fee increases have no evident relation to their costs or services offered.
This ain't fricken' Nascar. I had a coworker, he stopped doing Daytona 500 when the fees to park his RV went, in two years, from $300/wk to $800/wk. That was for a hard piece of ground, no portolets, no trash service, no dump station, no water, no tickets to any events, nothing.
As I primitive camp, the $20/pp Wed night fee kills me. That is standard now for the park; I see it at SpringFest and MagFest. Sixty bucks for me, my wife and son, to drop my tent a day early?? For nothing offered, on their end. It's a SIYA fee: a Stick It In Your Ass fee
Twenty bux to camp Wed night at Wanee? At least there's some music. But in the end, it's just another fee that should be included as part of your ticket. Since the beginning, Mag / SpringFest have been four days of music w/ four nights camping included; Wanee should do the same.
The high fees and double-digit percent increases for you folks that do full hookups, I can only offer my condolences. As I someday *will* have a trailer / RV, it's not exactly a rosy picture, going forward...
