10 FAQs about Harvest Hosts

Today we cover ten frequently asked questions about the Harvest Hosts program for RVers.

What is Harvest Hosts?

Harvest Hosts is a membership network that invites RVers to camp overnight at a network of more than 792 locations consisting of breweries, distilleries, wineries, farms, museums and other attractions and more!

What types of RV’s are allowed?

All classes of RV’s including motor coaches are allowed. The only restriction is that they must be self contained. This means you have an interior toilet with tanks or some sort of composting system. Unfortunately tents, campers with tent pop-outs, minivans and sleeping in trucks or cars are restricted.

Do hosts offer electricity or water?

Some hosts may, however as a rule expect no hook-ups.

Can you I use a generator?

Generally, yes you can but it’s best to call ahead and make sure.

How long can I stay?

Harvest Hosts is designed as an overnight program with stays of a maximum 24 hours. It is frowned upon to ask your host if you can stay an additional night. However, your host may invite you to stay another night at their discretion.

Must I buy something?

You are encouraged to buy something to show your appreciation to your hosts for their hospitality. We look at it as we get some great products or experience an amazing event or location that we probably would have paid for anyway and then we get free camping on top of that.

Are pets allowed?

Many Harvest Host sites allow pets. Some allow them inside and others require the pets to stay in the parking area. This will be clearly marked on the Host information page.

We are traveling with friends, do they need to be a Harvest Host member too?

Each RV vehicle will need a Harvest Host membership to stay overnight at any Harvest Host location.

What are the parking areas like?

The parking surface might be concrete, asphalt, gravel, grass or dirt. You may be in the Host’s parking lot, or in a field, orchard or vineyard. This will be listed on the Host information page and you can verify this when you call to let them know you are visiting.

How much does it cost?

There are 2 plans. The first plan is Harvest Host Classic and that plan allows you access to all of breweries, distilleries, wineries, farms, museums and event locations. This plan costs $79.00 a year which is typically paid for in the cost of two stays at a Harvest Host site vs. a campground. Harvest Host + Golf plan allows access to all the Classic locations as well as golf courses which opens it up to about 1136 locations. The Harvest Host + Golf plan costs $119.00 a year which is typically paid for in the cost of three stays at a Harvest Host site vs. a campground.

This is a Harvest Hosts site we were excited about! It helps that we were hungry and our cupboards were bare as we had been on the road for several days, but camping overnight at a farm is always fun.
