Just a question to get opinions (Yeah, everybody has one) If you could design a CG or RV Park what would constitute the perfect one. What location, size, amenities, etc..

I thought this would be fun.

Location-Location-Location!
1. Nowhere near an airport, freeway or railroad tracks.
2. No more than 2 hours from home
3. On the ocean front or in a lush green forest by a river.

Ammenities-
1.VERY large sites with a large concrete parking pad so you can still walk on concrete all around your coach-even with all slides out
2.Sapless trees to provide shade without the mess of cleaning it off your rig.
3.Lush green lawn around the site-plus the lawn is always dry during waking hours.
4.Built in gas bbqs with comfortable patio chairs around a nice dining table
5.Year round heated Pool, spa and exercise room.
6.Weather that is picture perfect all the time-at a constant 75 all the time - but with low humidity and a slight breeze to keep the coach aired out.
7. Full hookups with 30 & 50 amp service at all sites.
8. Pet Roombas at each site to pick up after each pet. (Ron - please fine tune this and contact the Patent Office ASAP!

SIZE-
Just big enough for my DH and I! ...Kidding ...no more than 100 sites - so that it is big enough to walk the park and small enough to meet many of the people

(OK- what did I miss?)

And $13 a night for all that. Actually, that RV resort already exists(cept for cheerleaders) in FL, but the fee is $135 a night.

Since we're dreaming here, how about on the ocean, WITH a forest, AND with a river running through it.

That sounds like the Klamath River RV park I stayed at, on the Ocean, in the Forest with a River running through it

OK, I am a mom of many littles, so I would have to add a playground. Make it away from the sites so you don't have to worry about the kids being loud and disturbing other people. Make it wilderness themed too. I saw one at Hickam AFB in HI that was made like a fort. It was really neat. Oh, and put a jacuzzi for adults only at one end of the playground where mom and dad can relax and still keep an eye on the littles. That would be perfect.

Oh, and as for the sites. I agree with the lush green lawn, bbq grill, and comfy chairs and table. I would add a nice lantern, umbrella if there are not enough trees to shade it and a chiminea or firepit.

Oh, and wifi.

Ernie...
I think a 45 might fit after looking at the pics on the Klamath River site -
Klamath River RV Photos

Doesn't have the concrete pad I wanted to go all the way around the rig though...

This is closer to what I was thinking...
Harbor Vista

Boy this is fun.
Concrete Pads
trees that don't drip sap
play ground
BBQ with comfortable seating(doesn't everyone carry their own chairs?)
No airplanes, trains, or freeways
Ocean, Lake, River, or Forest
WiFi
Pull thru's

These are all good points, any other ideas?
I am playing with an idea for the Eugene, OR area. I don't know if anyone would consider Eugene a "destination" but with its' proximity to Junction City and Coburg it my be viable.
