Permanent Residents

I would love to see campground listings with the percentage of permanent residents. They are too busy working and living and leaves us travelers with nobody to meet. I'm in a campground that is noisy due to people going to work in the morning coming home all hours. And BORING. Hope the next campground we go to isn't like this one. I wish they would separate the permanent from the travelers in all parks. By the way it sure rains a lot in Texas

I find it more annoying that a park will have so many spaces and 90% of them are permanent. Trying to book a weekend is next to impossible because they only have 10-15 spaces that aren't filled by permanent residents.

I understand why they need permanent residents. Helps through slow periods. But when they have so many permanent doesn't make for a nice campground experience

Over the 5+ years we've been fulltiming there has been a significant increase in the number of "permanent" residents at parks all over the country. As long as a park is kept neat and clean I see no reason why the number of long term residents has any effect on my "camping experience."

We stay in RV parks so we can have a safe and pleasant place to spend the night. I don't expect to meet people at parks we stay at any more than we would at a hotel. I honestly don't care why someone else is staying there; the fact that they have a day job is no business of mine.

During our 7 yrs of FT travels........Campground was just a place to temporarily park/sleep as we went venturing out and about during the day time exploring --- sightseeing, scenic drives etc.

Permanents/Short-timers/Travelers etc.
Never made much difference to us.
We weren't there to seek enjoyment from the campground.

Found mass majority of folks were very friendly/engaging when approached.

I love meeting other campers. Getting to know others living our lifestyle. There is a difference in resident park and an RV park. Each of us have a preference. I just wish
they would give a heads up that this park is more of a residential park

You need to start going to public parks - state parks, county and city parks, national forest campgrounds, national parks. There's a 2-week limit so movement is constant.

I agree with you... Nothing against people living in a rv park,,, I've lived in my car before wishing I had something as nice as a rv... BUT, we now find some of them leave their "stuff" out in the park,, letting animals or kids run loose or un supervised,,, etc... Personally as a "camper" ,,, we would avoid those places.... I also Love to talk to other Rv'Rs ...

Sounds to me like a good investment opportunity
