RV parks and campgrounds: help visitors to your campground enjoy retirement life with quality activities and amenities.

Seniors have plenty of RV parks and campgrounds to choose from. What makes them favor one site over another?

There are plenty of reasons, including location and rates. But, life after retirement isn’t what it was many years ago. Now, seniors tend to be more active, and expect more than just a quiet, secluded place to relax and savor retirement life. So, that means they’re looking for sites that offer plenty of senior friendly activities and amenities.

As a campground owner, how does your property stack up? We’ve compiled a list of activities and amenities that could attract more seniors to your property. While some of these may not be suitable for your site, hopefully this will get the wheels turning inside your head!

Most RV parks and campgrounds also need commercial vehicle insurance.

While it’s important to help your guests lead an active retirement life, it’s critical as a campground owner to protect your property with the correct insurance.

Do you use vehicles on your site as part of your daily operations? If so, you may benefit from a commercial vehicle insurance policy. It can cover your own vehicle(s), as well as non-owned or hired vehicles used for the purpose of your business. It can apply to passenger cars, small trucks, vans, pickups, tractors and other types of vehicles. 

Don’t make the mistake of thinking your personal auto policy will pay for claims on vehicles used for your business as a campground owner. In most cases, it won’t.
