What types of things do you look for when you pull into a park?? Dawn 11-8-03  
Im a student from St. John's Newfoundland Canada and I need your help in determining the types of things RVers look for when they pull into a park.

Im doing a business plan course where I have to mock through the steps of opening a RV park. The thing is its hard to get people to fill out surveys as part of my primary research. I need opinions from Canada and the United States.

I would really appreciated your time if you could fill out our online survey for me its on a a St. Johns ball hockey stite because i got free use of it for a couple of weeks.

The site is:

We use Trailer Guide and like their rating system...

1) Cleanliness
2) Beauty - views, vistas, etc.
3) Size of lot and arrangement
4) Facilities - hookups, office modems, instant telephone

P.S. We like Pippy Park and have stayed there twice and will do so again.

For mock opening of an RV Park consider:
1. Location--Mountains, Ocean, Lake, etc.--Water areas are particularly desirable.
2. Recreation areas--Putt-Putt Golf, Shuffle Board, Horse Shoe Pits Swimming Pool, Recreation Building for various events, Ie; Bingo, Dancing, Evening Socializing--Card Playing, Pot-Luck Dinners, etc.
3. Shower and bathroom facilities and Laundry Building for RV'ers without self contained units.
4. Paving of driveways and parking pads with patios.
5. Convenience of standard hook-ups--water, sewer, power--maybe Park Operated Cable TV, Telephone with Internet capability.
6. Maybe being affiliated with one of the travel campground companies--Good Sam, Coast to Coast(CCC), Resorts Parks International (RPI}, Escapees, Etc.
7. Maintain a maintenance crew that can keep the park in an exceptionally attractive and clean condition at all times. {There is a unit called "Work-Campers" that travel the country and do this work for a site to camp on during a particular season or other incentive}

Couldn't pull up your survey so just rambled on for a moment with what we found in various parks as we traveled. I pretty much described the BRIARCLIFFE RV RESORT in NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SOUTH CAROLINA, USA where we are a member and have enjoyed their facilities for years. It's a city of over 125 golf courses and resturants of every description. It is a member owned MEMBERSHIP park and we have a membership we can sell. I may be a little late in getting this information to you but thought I would try. I was stationed in St. John's for about eighteen months (1952-53) when you had the Pepperell AF Base there. I worked out at the Torbay Airport during my time there and enjoyed the City very much. Still have a panoramic picture of the city taken from Cabot Tower area, made around 1951, and may be the only one of its kind left. Hope this helps you in your schooling.
