As I mentioned in my last post, we visited a RV Resort (that is what they called themselves) and found that is was less of a standard campground (lots of over night spots) and more of a year round resort (permanently rented sites). We found that most of the sites were level with park model campers on them (think tiny mobile homes). Most of them had permanent awnings complete with ceiling fans and extended decks. A lot of them had nice outdoor furniture, a place to park their golf carts, lawn ornaments and potted plants. It was so interesting to see how different sites had unique ways of setting all of this up. We even saw many sites that had a full size outdoor refrigerator, kitchen cabinets, and storage boxes. I know that most of these folks are probably retired and this affords them a lake home without all the upkeep and expense of a house. It’s a great idea, I think!
I snapped some pictures as we walked around the place. These are the sites that really caught my eye. I hope you will find it interesting as well. Many of the sites were vacant the weekend that we stayed but it wasn’t during peak season.
This site was right behind where we stayed and it had the nicest deck with a great view of the whole campground. They probably even have a partial lake view in the winter time.
The windows in this one were awesome! Looks like a little house. As you can see there is more uncovered deck behind the awning area.
There were definitely more park models here than anything else but there were also a good amount of 5th wheels with permanent awnings. This one had a decal on one of the locker doors that read “Grandkids welcome: Parents by appointment.” LOL
This site was sort of in the middle of the interior part of the campsites. It still had a large deck all around and many ways to access it. I imagine they have some nice parties and gatherings here all summer.
This one was right near above the pond and has a huge deck off the back with gazebo. It looked like they had things put up and covered for the season but I imagine it looks very relaxing and welcoming when it’s all out.
It was fun to see how other people live at campgrounds! As one sign we saw read “welcome to the trailerhood!” Maybe one day we will have a place here when we retire!
What do you think of this type of camping?
