You will face zoning regulations, land development and environmental concerns that can impact other areas when building the campground. It will take a lot of time and expense with the planning and petition before the local government can permit you to start the campground business.
  • Prepare the campground. Bring in land levelers and put in roads. Build tents or cabins and construct parking spots for RVs. Hire a land development firm in order to have a supply of water and proper sewage in the area. Provide electrical hookups and other landscaping materials.
  • Plan carefully the spaces in which RVs will park. Ensure the RVs can pull in and out without disturbing other guests. Provide enough space for all types and sizes of RVs, along with enough room for guests to feel they have enough space to set up barbecues, patio areas, etc.
  • Provide other amenities. Some campgrounds have a swimming pool, spa and a clubhouse. If you’re located near a lake, consider building a fishing pier for families to enjoy. Build a mini-grocery and sell RV repair equipment and other necessity items for your guests.
  • Advertise your new RV campground.  Create a website that includes photos of your campground and its amenities, along with its contact information. Adjust your rates and keep them in season. During the off season, provide promotional events and discounts that will attract customers to your campground. Place ads in travel magazines and local newspapers.
