I did dozens of Camping & Caravanning Club sites last year. The first one I stayed at asked me if I was a member and then told me that, as a backpacker/cyclist, there wasn't any point in joining. I wasn't the one who did the calculation but I think the site owner said I would have to stay every night for something like six months to make it worth my while financially. After that, whenever a site asked if I was a member (which wasn't always), I just told them that story, they always agreed the pricing didn't make any sense and I never had to join. The Camping & Caravanning Club sites were some of the friendliest and cheapest ones in the UK.
