Karen Duquette in the pool (off season) - peace, quiet, relaxing. And she had the entire pool and hot tub to herself with no one else around at 9 p.m.

Thousand Trails Campground in Clermont, Florida is a membership park. When the two RV Gypsies first joined the park in 2008 (the above photos), they got to drive through the park and pick their own site, which is one of the many benefits.

In 2014 the two RV Gypsies found out that RVers no longer picked their own site at this campground and the campground had a lot of full-timers staying there. As time went by, the two RV Gypsies learned that there were not enough Thousand Trails campgrounds throughout the USA to make the membership fees worth it. But they did enjoy it for a few years.
