The general public cannot join RVA Camping Programs. Only members of resorts affiliated with RVA or organizations / clubs approved by RVA may join. This ensures that the RVA Affiliated Resorts will host our members according to the rules of the RVA membership. This also ensures that our members will be greeted with courtesy when using the camping system.
Your permanent membership card should reach you within 60 days from the time your application is received by RVA, if your application is completely and correctly filled out and the membership fee has been paid. You may start making reservations upon the day you enroll in RVA Camping Program by using the Temporary Membership card and calling reservations at 1(800) 934–3443.
If you wish to be guaranteed a site and only pay the RVA Camping rate you must make reservations in advance. We recommend making reservations as far in advance as possible. You may make reservations up to ninety (90) days in advance. Sites are reserved on a first call, first served basis, and RVA cannot guarantee availability at a resort. Very few, if any, RVA Affiliated Resorts will allow drive-in members the RVA Camping rate of $15 to $35 per night. Our Affiliated Resorts will accept reservations the same day as your arrival if there is a site available.
This is a courtesy to our Affiliated Resorts. When we make a reservation for one of our members, our Affiliated Resorts reserve a site for this reservation. If the member does not show up nor call to cancel their site, it sits empty. The Affiliated Resort is not able to sell that site to another camper. They must be compensated for reserving that empty site.
No. The rights to reciprocal use are not combined between different camping affiliation memberships. No park is obligated to host a member under different affiliations for a member’s consecutive visit.
All affiliated resorts are independently owned and operated. RVA cannot guarantee that any affiliate resort will remain affiliated with RVA. We do, however, continuously seek to add resorts to our system.
Yes. In order to remain in good standing with RVA and receive the discounted RVA rates, you must pay your annual dues to RVA within 60 days of their due date. Any member who allows their RVA membership to lapse for more than 60 days will be required to pay a reinstatement fee of $250.00 in addition to the current annual dues.
