Membership Information

Why Become A Member

Forest Hills Club, Inc. is a cooperative nonprofit corporation. The Club is self-governing with a board of directors elected by its Annual Members, who jointly share in the financial responsibilities of the Club. Operating expenses are apportioned equally among the membership through our annual membership dues and annual capital improvement assessments. In addition, Annual Members are urged to contribute personal services to the Club to the best of their abilities in order to keep costs low. There are many ways to contribute effort, ranging from infrastructure repair and maintenance tasks to gardening to keeping the guest cabins clean to doing our plastics recycling.

Some benefits of annual membership include:

  • Unlimited access to Club grounds, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
  • Complimentary membership in AANR.
  • Voting rights during the spring and fall General Assemblies for election of board members and other significant matters that may arise.
  • Eligibility to hold office on the Board of Directors.
  • 10% discount on nightly camping fees and cabin rentals.

Annual Membership Fees: Single $ 710.00 • Couple/Family $ 750.00.

A Couple/Family membership includes a couple and their minor children and minor grandchildren.

Annual dues become payable upon becoming a member and are subsequently billed annually on the first day of the month of the membership anniversary.

Other Fees

For the current amounts of the other fees described here, refer to the “Annual Member Fees” page.

Capital Improvement: In addition to the annual dues, there is an annual assessment in January for infrastructure/capital improvement expenses.

Site License Assessment: Charged to Site License holders, this fee is used to help defray the Club’s property taxes, insurance premiums, and water and electrical system maintenance costs attributable to the site license holder’s lot.

Lifetime Site Licenses

Annual members may purchase a lifetime campsite license, and that site license entitles them to occupy a specified lot. A site license can be passed by will if the beneficiary is a Club member or becomes a member. A member may only hold a single site license. A site license can also be sold to another member. A site license held by the Club can be purchased from the Club at the going rate; site licenses for sale by members will vary in price depending upon the improvements made to their lot.

There is a fee for site license transfers, payable to the Club, for lot sales transactions between members.

Important Notice – Lifetime Site Licenses are granted only upon approval of the Board. Site licenses (and annual memberships) are subject to other terms and conditions which can be found in our Constitution and Members’ Guidebook, available in the Member’s Section of this website or upon request at the Club office. This information on this page is intended solely to provide a brief overview of the costs associated with annual memberships.

T Lot Leases

Annual members can also lease certain designated campsites (T Lots) on an annual or monthly basis. The annual lease fee is due April 1 of each year.

Electricity Usage

All sites and T Lots have metered electrical service and the site license holder or T Lot lessor is responsible for all electrical charges at rates established by the Club.

As of September 2019; fees are subject to change
