Being a boondocker, it would need a view & privacy between sites.

For us we like a big space so we can have some privacy with some grass area by us for a place to sit out on. Great electrical supply, good water, a pool . We don't mind being out of the hustle and bustle of towns either........ We like a helpful friendly staff.

Not too sure about the gravel thing…….makes a mess in my opinion.

I think it would be nice to have a row of bamboo next to the grass area for privacy. Then a concrete slab for the MH to go on.

I can't remember the name of the movie but there was a big drive in movie screen in a park and people could spread out there blankets or chairs and watch the movie out under the stars.

Let me get this started with some suggestions. I am going to assume that this RV park has to make a profit, thus cannot have sites located on their own 5 acres of land. The sites will need to be closer together, but it would be nice to have some type of vegetation screening between sites.

Must haves:
  • Movable picnic table
  • Stable electricity with a full 30 or 50 amps available at all sites
  • Level sites, concrete not required, but nice
  • Water and sewer hook ups (duh)
  • If area is compatible, a fire ring
Nice to have:
  • Free HD cable service
  • Wifi that every site can use without external antennas
  • In a warm climate, some type of tree coverage
  • A pool, in northern climates it should be an inside pool
  • Separate dump station that travelers can use (someone that is on the road and needs to dump can pay a small fee).

I'd add drive-through camp sites for those of us rather less skilled and driving big RV's.

And a clearly marked area for walking dogs with a little baggie dispenser and a trash can for waste pick-up.

A nice pavilion to set up the boom box and dance!

We don't need the hook ups but the firepit is a must have!

Rustic, lakeside, mountain setting away from any signs of "civilization". This doesn't mean far away just where the noise and lights are not a factor.

I would prefer level concrete sites, pull through, with plenty of room for all the toy's that people now feel the need to bring along.

I don't mind seeing my neighbor but I don't want to know everything about him so some site separation using existing trees and bushes would be great especially if the trees still provided shade. Since all of the newer mh's are power hungry beasts 50/30 amp service is a must.

Water and sewer hookups would be an essential except for the no services "I'm just passing through" section close to the entrance/exit especially designed for a quick nights sleep and off before the sun comes up.

Cable access and wifi at all sites would be a great touch. I have no issue with paying a little extra for these services that I may or may not choose to use.

Small camp store with a laundry.

Just my starter list.

P.S. I have no use for rv parks/CG's that resemble the RV dealer I bought my mh from.
