Peggy,

Some will and others won't. Check the campground's rules or inquire at the office.

While traveling out west this summer, I found most of them out that way would not permit rig or tow vehicle washing.

Peggy, most campground do not let you wash your rig at the campsite, unless you just use a bucket (no water hose). Some have a "special wash area" where you are permitted to wash the rig. Sometimes this is just a out of the way area with a water hose attached to a faucet. Usually this is free but I have seen one that charged $10.00. Sometimes there is a "detail" service that will come to the site and detail the rig for a fee or move the rig to the wash area to wash it for you.

Since you own a campground, I am curious what your thoughts are? To let them wash or to not let them wash? What ever you decide, be sure to list it in the campground rules and expect to have several violations.

My thoughts...let the long term monthly renters and work campers wash their rigs at the site so they will have nice looking rigs as long as you can have their sites away from the overnighters.

Peggy we use to keep our camper on a permanent lot at a campground and we could not wash it...I would have paid to wash it...It got so grimey sitting under the trees...I think it makes the campground look bad when you see unkept campers...There's nothing worse than that...You might could specify that it has to be done on an off day when you're not full up or worried about water pressure...Pat

It would make my day if I was at a campsite and the local girl scouts/cheerleader/church youth group would come wash my TT while I was off fishing/sight seeing. A controlled group that did it often would know how to use a bucket to conserve water. Maybe leave the money with the CG operator and make sure my windows were shut.

Tony,

That's a great idea, I've often joked to the DH when we've seen fundraiser car washes "quick honey, lets run home and hook up the trailer!" Maybe next time I should ask them if they'd do it, you never know! I'd even pay 3x the normal $5 donation!!

WE no longer have anything on our site map about washing vehicles but that was mainly to simplify the map and eliminate the "no" this and that stuff. Too negative. People always seem to ask about washing and such and when they do it gives us a chance to go over the ground rules. Mainly what we are after is no excessive water that will leave a puddle or create a soft spot that can cause a rut or a lasting problem. Our campers have been very understanding and we have not had any problems. The water is good for our trees.

Terry, do you have a written set of rules posted somewhere so they will know "what the rules are"? If the rules are not on the site map or a handout sheet and not posted anywhere how can you enforce them. Rules do not have to be No this and No that...

The three most important should be:
1: Quite hours such as 7:00 am to 10:00 pm
2: Pets on a leash such as "no more than" 6 ft
3: Speed limit for driving in the park is something like 10 mph.

Ah, the vampire campgound.

Thanks, Tony

It must have been a senior moment.

Or maybe a campground for night workers??? They go to work at 10 pm and get home at 7 am !LOL

There was a rig-washing service that came through Guadalupe River RV Resort in Kerrville, TX. I believe he was charging $1.00 per foot of length. If you're referring to what campgrounds charge to "do it yourself", I recall paying a flat $5.00 fee the last time I was charged.

Edit: The campground we stopped by this weekend advertised that "We Wash RV's". Their going rate was $1.75 per foot with a $50.00 minimum! Inflation has set in, I suppose...

I have been to Florida and many CGs allow you to wash your rig and/or provide an area. The reason being it does make the CG look better than to have some really dirty rigs lying about.
