Some campground membership contracts are for a limited amount of time, such as 1 year, 3 years, or 10 years, while some are for life. If your membership contract is for a specified number of years, you may not be able to terminate it until you have paid the full amount owed for the contract and the dues owed for the specified number of years.
Many campground membership contracts do not state for how long you must continue to keep the contract in effect by paying annual dues. If your contract does not state how many years it lasts, and if you have already paid the full price of the membership, you may be able to terminate the contract by giving the business notice that you no longer wish to keep the contract in effect.
You may still have to pay any amounts you owe for past due annual fees or dues you owed before you notified the business that you do not wish to keep the membership contract in effect. It is best to give written notice, sent by certified mail, return receipt requested, to show the date you sent the notice and that the business received it.
If your contract does not specify the number of years or months you must continue the contract, and if the business continues to attempt to collect annual dues after you notify it that you want to terminate the membership, you may wish to file a complaint with this office. Remember, whether or not you can cancel or terminate your contract will depend on what your contract with the campground membership company says.
