Our Philosophy to the Campground/RV Park Business is Simple
We believe that all aspects of the campground or RV park business should be guided by market research. Until you define the precise market you will be serving, it is impossible to design the right facility. Many of the answers to various campground construction problems can also be found by knowing who the ultimate market will be. It is also obvious that knowledge of the market is critical to all management and operating decisions. Therefore we strongly suggest that our services start with research to identify all segments of the market to be served and to define their needs and wants.
We begin with a Needs Analysis that identifies your particular
challenges. Once we agree on the objectives we will provide you with a comprehensive
proposal that will:
1. Summarize the agreed upon objectives.
2. Provide you with several options to enable you to reach the desired results.
Our Campground Design and Consultant Services include:
Park Feasibility Studies - More than just a site location study, this involves the gathering and analysis of a great deal of information necessary to make an informed decision about the potential success of a specific development concept in a certain location.
Campground Design - Once the market has been defined and the park concept refined, we will help you and your engineers create a design best suited for the market you intend to serve.
Business Plans - We are experts in business plan development. Whether you are looking to raise $50,000.00 or 10 million dollars, our campground consultants can develop a business plan that will get investors excited about your business.

Operation Manuals - All operational manuals, such as front desk, cleaning, policy, or training are custom designed to meet the exacting needs of your park.
Operational Audits/Analysis - Our team of experts will
analyze your campground to identify areas of opportunity. The audit is followed
up with a strategy session that details goals, responsibility, timetables
