I've joined this forum as a camper not as a campground owner. That being said, I'd like to make a comment as a CG owner. What I've found works best for me as a CG owner is to be totally honest with people when they make reservations. Never promise them something you can't deliver. Wifi in my park is not available throughout the whole park but works great in the areas where it is available. My ads reflect this as having hot spots. I explain this when people make their reservation so there are no surprises. Cable is available on 70 of my 117 sites and at the time of reservation we ask which hookups, including cable, are needed. You might really like my park or you may find it's not the right park for you. By being honest at the time you make your reservation we hope to help you make that decision. It's a hard job to run a small rural campground but we do it because we love it and we want happy campers. Honesty on our part is what makes that happen. Thanks for letting me explain another side of the issue.
One last comment: We are constantly trimming and cutting back trees and bushes but those darn things just keep growing. We know how important that is so we keep at it.
We look forward to joining the ranks of RVers this winter and enjoying the other side of the camping industry.
Thank you mrebele for your insite and info. This is why I started this post is to get people talking about these issues (not complaining about them) so RVer's, CG owners and managers could help find solutions. I always tell my friends and family "If you don't keep up with technology you get old and the world passes you by". It's been a great discussion so for and I have enjoyed every post with hopefully more to come.
