Resort

Perhaps we should define (resort)

I under stand it to be someplace that has ==
1. Golf
2. More than one pool
3. Lots of organized things to do
4. Little larger space--so you can have your awning out and not be in your neighbors space
5. Some kind of shuttle service

Thanks.

Hi Beak12,
Consider the definition to be different based on the location. The "resort" amenities need to compliment the area it is located in. The amenities also need to be activities guests in the area will actually use.

A RV resort should not be just an overpriced CG. If done correctly, the amenities will draw guests to the resort that has them.

You are correct!

OK, so here I'm putting on my helmet.

Start Rant

A resort will offer amenities that campgrounds do not (already mentioned) and yes might be higher priced. I believe this is a good thing in that it might keep less than desirables' out. Let them go to the lower priced campgrounds and good riddance. You know the type, loud and partying all night, not following rules, unruly children, etc.

I especially like the Class A, 55+ communities as those type problems rarely occur. We live this life style to enjoy ourselves, not to be bothered by these other people.

End Rant.

Let the pummeling begin!

Some pretty good suggested criteria IMHO, but in my travels I haven't seen anything resembling consistency in why places call themselves "resorts". Maybe they should just use these guys as their standard. We stayed there for four months during the winter of 07/08 and loved it.

You mean, kinda like this: Big Rig Resorts - Featured Resort
With 3 sites per acre you have all the room you could want, practically any thing one wants to do is within a short drive.

Resorts cater to a certain clientele. Most of us aren't impressed.

Like everything else related to RVng .... everyone has their own likes & dislikes ... so glad to see the resorts out there for those who want that environment ...
For us, we just like have a nice place to park, in the trees if possible and good utilities. After that, don't need the rest as we're probably out with family .... but that's what we're doing .... visiting family ... where ever we are !!! Doesn't make sense to pay for things we'll never use .........
