Harvest Hosts: Unique RV Camping Experiences

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

A network of more than 700 memorable camping locations lets self-contained RVers stay overnight for the price of an annual membership.

Oregon’s 10-acre LongSword Vineyard welcomes Harvest Hosts members.

One-of-a-kind camping opportunities are ripe for the picking through Harvest Hosts, a network of more than 600 wineries, breweries, orchards, farms, ranches and other attractions that invite self-contained RVers to stay overnight for the cost of an annual membership. 

Each venue offers guests a unique experience, from gathering crisp apples to collecting just-laid eggs, frolicking with goats or kicking back among grapevines while taking in the sunset. Spanning the continental United States, Canada and Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, host sites range from a 1,500-acre alpaca farm in Georgia to the Museum of Osteology in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

RVers can enjoy an overnight stay at Florida’s Golden Acres Ranch among naturally raised goats and sheep.

Stays are limited to one night per site, and membership runs $79 per year. According to Harvest Hosts’ owner, Joel Holland, the only requirements are to enjoy your stay, be considerate and support your host, whether that be helping with a chore, purchasing farm-fresh goods or buying a bottle — or a case — of your favorite wine.
