OK my 2 cents worth:
Keep every tree possible. Design around them and advertise shaded and satellite friendly sites available.
On the way out windshield cleaning station with air compressor
Book guests into every other site when possible
Wifi with enough bandwidth for full park and it is OK to limit individules
Cable with program guide and camera coverage for dog park, pool, lounge, laundry etc.
Mail system so I can have mail waiting for me when I arrive
Park brouchure that also tells me about any and all touristy things around like: popular bike and hiking routes, kayak/canoe launch sties and things to see, fishing spots and gear needed, where to buy hunting fishing license
good food, groceries, vet. emergency phone numbers and address for clinics and hospitals and more.
Repeat customer discounts
1/4 mile markers around park roads for the walkers
Web site with pick my site reservation capability
Controlled water pressure
Annual site water and electric checkup that includes elec. blade tension test
Gee time for a beer.

If you need .... PLANT trees, they grow fast, landscape all sites. Large signs on roadway to campground so you can be found,.

Seven Feathers is fabulous! But, they put lots of money into it as an attraction to the Casino.

A good WI-FI network to every site. Lots of folks full time and are still working on the road and need access to the Internet.

I am onboard with limited or no campfires.

Players pay twice at Seven Feathers. Once for an overpriced spot to park and again at the tables. IMO

If it is a RV Resort, no fire ring would be acceptable.

If it is a RV Park or campground, fire ring is an absolute requirement.

I love campfires, but can see why others would not. Like the idea of smoking and non-smoking,

Love the idea of an RV wash pad!

Here is another park with wagon wheel areas. However I'd prefer to have the spokes angled, not at 90* as this park has.

http://m.lakeshoreiowa.com

The suggestion to have an informative handout available at the sign-in office is important. It may help retain wandering RVers who would otherwise be just overnighters. Some office people think their only function is to take in the money and tell you what site you are assigned. A few (rare) office people are good PR people for the area. The impression presented at the office sticks with me. If the check-in person presents a sterile deadpan attitude, I likely will not feel welcome for a return visit.

Also a discount for repeat customers is something I've never encountered, but it sure as heck would be great.

The criteria for the perfect park are piling up. Where are we now in the budget?

Just waiting for somebody that needs to get rid of a barrel of money!

So what would it cost to get something like this off the ground?

Someone earlier said $10,000 to $12,000 per site, plus the cost of the land.

Perfect Campround

No such thing as a PERFECT campground to many different likes and dislikes.

What one likes another does not and so on and so on.

As the real estate industry knows, location location location.

Finding available property that will be near attractions people will actually want to visit that's not too expensive to make a profit is the real challenge
