Have you been refused entry to a campground?

I"ve heard people talk about it, but i've never seen or heard about a policy at a campground that refuses a class of camper - old, ugly, skoolie, pop up, etc.

Have you been refused access/entry to a campground? Got a picture of your camper/skoolie? Where and what was their reason for refusing you?

So far in minnesota and wiscon havent had any problems. Even state parks havent had any problems. I think folks that do have issues are like the fancy rv parks in the southern states. It is all about appearances. They dont want folks that look like a party bus or some half washed up hippie bus pullung into a family camp ground. I have had more people come up to me and ask about my bus and say they like. Even some camp ground owners liked my bus. Well i hope this helped a little. And dont let other people make you feel bad because you want to be "different". Buses make awesome rvs

The fancy RV places here in the south care more about your age and appearance than your rig.
I mow a couple of 55-up parks. The people are jerks and are usually miserable.
The ones with POW/MIA flags are all really cool, but the retirees from Michigan and PA are easily some of the crabbiest, nosiest neighbors I could imagine having.

i have emailed rv parks, in Flordia, Texas , and Arazona , some out right said no, some asked for a picture and said ok,some said no, and some parks just said sure no problem come on down. I think places that have resort in there name are the ones that would say no right off the bat. To me it really doesn't matter, we stayed in many parks, people are friendly, even some with the million dollar rvs, I'm gearing up to do more boondocking, looking forward to Quartzsite area, head out for few weeks, move around a bit, stay at a rv park for a few nights for water and dump, laundry , and head out again. Our coal is to snowbird and spend the least amount of money on rv parks,

Never stayed at an RV Park, never will (maybe in March for the bus conversion gathering).

Never been turned down for any normal place...SP, private CG, NP, friends back yard.

Harleys, old PU campers, non Harley MCs, MH, bus etc.

When any place tells you NO, tell them you are a gay transgender disabled person of color.

Ive been looking at buying a thousand trail elite membership. I talked with the guy that sells them about my conversion. He said they do have a standard but its based around you have to have what looks like a RV. (not written down) Needs to be converted well.
So painted etc we have lots of them on here. I did see that youtube video of the couple living in the RV with there kids and the front window was broken out and it all looked horrible to me. They were asked to leave. On thousand trails side I thought they handled it very well. They told them it had to be fixed up and refunded them all there membership money and sent them on there way. She said when it was back to fixed they could re join.
Its not cheap and they do want your money, it is a private club and I to want some standards while I'm staying.
A state park at least up here in the northwest i don't think there allowed to turn you away. I know you can camp out of your car or methlab.

I just wonder what kind of hurdles I'll run into, I was looking at TT as well.... mine is gonna look like a Skoolie, except in color. The plan is to seal up and mask some of the windows on the inside so as to preserve the Skoolie look... after tinting them all as dark as I legally can. Then white on the top and blue (or maybe red) on the bottom. Think that would fly?

Or that your bus self-identifies as a Prevost.

Paint it white and stencil, "Activity Bus" on the side. Or, in my case, "Inactivity Bus".
