Looks like a spruced up parking lot to me... not my thing.

I like all the plans that have been laid out, and all this for just 25 dollars a night. Sounds great to me. Jim

We love all the ideas here. There is a fine balance to creating a great cg that a large crowd will like and trying not to break the bank too. LOL

Green and nature based with the practical concrete pads and pool and ........

We think it needs to be a place that we will love too since we will be there a lot if we do this.

Thing is, the successful CG either has to BE the destination, or be ON THE WAY TO the destination and convenient. The latter finds itself competing with WalMart and other free overnighting options (truck stops, rest areas, etc). It's hard to compete with free camping and "guaranteed low prices" on everything else.

If you want your CG to thrive, you have to offer some unique and desirable amenities. You can't be all things to all people. Focus on a target audience and cater to them.

Find out what the local governmnet thinks about your idea. I will have some property on Big Pine Key in Florida one day (inheritance). I thought I'd set up a little 10 space CG there. I came to find out that it will never happen because local government will not allow it.

What ramblin says about "The Destination" is a biggie. Unless u r very near one or two popular tourist trap type places, building a destination campground is a biggie.

On that same realm, and don't call me a stuck up motorhomer, but there has to be some standards. I know that many campground live or die financially by thier seasonals or all year rentals... But we see too many permanent porches, or TT's that look like they haven't moved since the 60's, we get nervous. Even fairly new park models give us pause.

we are campers...

We don't stay at "mobil home parks"

Oh I know what you mean. We have checked and the town are all for it. We just need to finish the plans for it, get the bids for the work, and then decide if it is something we really want to do. But either way we will probably put in a few spaces for us and our family and friends - bare minimum.

And we do not want it to be a trailer park at all but a fun destinaton. That is really important to us. We have plenty of space to do as we want and it maybe that it is a small private place instead of a CG. Just getting lots of ideas here and that helps us either way with the planning and deciding.

Midnite I thought 25.00 was a good price but I like your plan better. Does that free include happy hour? Jim
