First I want to say that I have not logged in for a couple of years. I made this suggestion about having a place for owners to come to and receive help but after checking a couple of time i gave up.
Today I was searching for help and found this forum.

Heres my question
I own an RV Resort 18 sites in a location 30 mile from a walmart size town.
Today a visiting rv guest want thing to do but also wanted a place away from the big city.
What can be offered to RVers that want to get away from the large 100 site rv resort an come to a small quiet very clean resort in a small town. All we have right here is a fishing town near the Gulf lots of nature. Also all of our coast are protected.
It is hard to please everyone but what should we do.

You do not need to add anything. That is the type of park we seek out. I like quiet and need to hear loud parties. Wifi is important too. Country Waye in Luray VA started very small ad expanded a bit over the years but did not lose the small park feel.

Clean, clean and clean.

Neat and tidy. Less is more. I would rather see tidy kept plain grass than contrived weedy landscaping and seasonal site lawn ornaments. How many gnomes does one site need? wink.gif

If you have seasonals try to keep them separate from overnighters. Both should be welcome but overnighters shouldn't feel like they crashed the neighborhood block party, and seasonals shouldn't have to deal with the inconvenience of our quick in and out or disappointment of our two paltry lawn chairs (we roam sans gnome wink.gif

In a campground as described by OP I would be staying for convenience more than destination. I would like a friendly welcome and *brief* visit by camp hosts the first evening just to insure we settled in to our site and all was working nicely. Drop off a map, brochure, whatever serves the guests.

Don't underestimate outlying activities and events.
We have stayed up to 40 minutes away from sport tournaments (children). Many urban/suburban areas host huge tournaments. I appreciate that $150/night block of hotel rooms but was willing to drive much further out to be able to feed my family and put my athletes to bed in their own camper. Of our team alone (20 kids) four families did this. Now multiply that by over 100 teams? My point being seek out different revenue sources. Circle your camp and start searching calling about special events you may tie into.

We were perfect guests. We paid, left early am, returned in the evening, had a nice stay and used few of the amenities.

Otherwise look at lot size. I get maximizing space but if awnings are touchin and you can hear your neighbor sipping coffee - you might want to spread out a bit (and advertise same).

I'll second that. When we were traveling extensively, sometimes we had to be up at the crack of dawn to take off. We tried to be as quiet as possible getting ready to go but it's impossible not to make a LITTLE noise. I was sorry if I bothered our neighbors who might have taken a day off to sleep in. Now that we're seasonals this summer, I highly appreciate being in a mostly-seasonal park because now I'M the one sleeping in.....
