If you are willing to fill out a survey, with 9 questions about your campsite preferences and 4 general demographic questions, I would greatly appreciate it.

Here is the link:

I wish there was a sure-fire way to prove that this is not an attempt at spamming or some other gimmick; but to those that choose to participate, many thanks,
Could you send us the results of your survey when done?

Days camped in 2015...more than 2014!!

Thanks for your follow-up to our responses, Erick.

Good luck with your project.

I would also be interested in reading your conclusions about how the RV Park and Campground industry is fairing in the current economy.
