Is you location in a spot to be a desination "RV Resort" or an overnight stopover type campground and which do you want to be or are in a position to be. Overnight spots can have electric only, electric and water, or full hook up with easy access and egress normally pull through type spots. Destination campground fancier sites wit cable, full hook up, patio and generally are rented for several days or weeks and are a bit more "scenic".

I agree with Kablewizard. The more general pics of your CG the better. Wide angle shots of sites (not just close ups), surroundings, bathhouses...etc would be helpful.

Some other suggestons: There seems to be a lot of dead space between lines spread out on your site. Try to close the gaps to make for easier reading. Please include the web-links to the area attractions you list. The "Make A Reservation or Inquiry" is yellow on a white background - very hard to read. Is that a disabled link or do we click on the EMAIL icon?
I don't have a "top 10", but I do have a top 3:
1-Friendly, helpful staff (if you treat us right, we'll be back & recommend you to our friends)
2-Safe, well-lit location (we want ourselves & our kids to feel secure during our visit)
3-Clean, obstacle-free sites (a well-kept CG is a sign the owners care)
Good luck with your endeavor!

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

What size are sites? Gravel or dirt road and sites? How close to major highways? Price seems about right. Forget about trying to please everyone,we all want different things in a campground. Just make it clean and friendly.

Definately add some "inline" pictures to the page!!! You don't need many, but a few to let the potential visitor "See" what you have to offer!

Level spaces; W/E/S located on proper side of site and reachable without extension cords or additional W/S hoses; clearly marked sites at front of site; firepits; clean restrooms; caring staff; decent sized sites; well-stocked store; pet friendly, but make folks pick up after their dogs.

1. Size of sites is Number 1. You must have some sites for big rigs at least 40 x 70 or larger when you consider 40' motorhome with a toad or a long bed pickup with a 40' travel trailer.

2. Level sites. This is the 2nd consideration. A nice level concrete pad is preferred. Must be level so that the refridge is not damaged.

3. FHU has to be 3rd!

4. Shade trees around the site so the RV is shaded has to be Number 4!

5. Clean bath house. Whether I use it or not, it speaks for they way the campground is run.

6. Store with some basic RV supplies and enough groceries to a day - breakfast, lunch & dinner.

7. Patio area so we can set our lawn chairs under the awning.

8. Picnic table and fire ring.

9. Friendly and caring staff with smiles!

10. Reasonable rates - probably might have been Number One!

Good luck with your campground, maybe we will stop by one of these days!
