Normandy Farms RV to Close Winters 2012

Here is a notice I just received from Normandy Farms. We have stayed there several times in the past but never during the winter. It truely is a wonderful park. This winter must have been a tuff one for them as most of New England saw their share of bad weather;

After 40 years and many hours of thoughtful consideration, we've decided to close the park during our off-season from December 1-March 31. This will not start until December 1st, 2012 so you'll still have another opportunity to join us for our Winter Wonderland program in 2011-12.

This new operational model will allow us to better allocate our time and resources during our busier season extending April through November. We plan to continue reinvesting in the park and have many exciting capital improvements on the agenda including a new playground, gate and reservations system this year and a restaurant facility planned for 2012. Closing during our winter months will enable us to reduce expenses while preparing and enhancing the park for the upcoming season.

Thanks to all of the campers who have supported us for all those cold winters!

We had the most brutally horrible winter her - I'm two towns over from Normandy Farms. We still have snow in our driveway and backyard. It must have been horrible trying to get all the snow from the roads in Normandy Farms.

We'll be at Normandy the weekend after mother's day as well as father's day weekend. I can see their point after the winter we had I didn't do any winter camping either. We usually do. Too much snow to take the rig out when we were free. I'm sure the cost of keeping the campground open during those weak months is just not worth it.

It's a shame but understandable. We spent a week there early this past Nov. with great weather! Appears we "got out of Dodge" in the nick of time. Our "girls" (see signature) LOVED the acre+ dog run.
