Camping Recipes and 50% Savings with Passport America

Camping is a family bonding experience when six people are in a 500 square foot sleeping area. Oh don’t get me wrong, we’re blessed with a bathroom and shower in this Jayco hybrid.

We ventured  out to Pigeon Forge, TN over Spring break. Our plan was a two-day visit to Dollywood using our season passes. As a mom of four with two grade school kids and toddlers, I appreciated the toddler play areas in every adult ride section. The kiddos loved the water play.

Our camping always includes a discount and this one happened to be from our Passport America membership. This enables us to camp 50% off at select campgrounds. We had two close choices to Dollywood and since we camped at the other choice two years ago, we decided to stay at Creekside.

Most campgrounds within Passport America are clean, well-kept and provide a pool for recreation. As we approached Pigeon Forge we noticed some of the motel pools were open and we were hoping for the same at the campground. Unfortunately it wasn’t, but that’s okay because our plan was to eat and sleep at the campground.

Oh the memories we are creating! And the meals we are making…

I always plan a menu and this trip is no exception:

Planning meals helps tremendously: it saves time, money and energy and gives us freedom to bond more, even if it’s camping in the rain. Though we can’t save much on gas, we CAN save on our camping and food expenses.
KOA is having an April special, buy one night get one 50% off. Be sure to check it out if you like to camp like us. We really like the KOA campground activities and pool.

    Is PassPort America only for if you’re using a camper/RV? Or does it include tent campers and cabin dwellers as well?
