Afraid your campground might not be used by seniors if you don't allow pets. I know very very few seniors without a pet(s)

That would leave room for those who don't have pets.

We belong to a gated park with no playground equipment, level, paved sites with patio and it is 90% occupied with seniors with pets. Never have a problem.

Mine would have a spot where you could pull over to and give a quick wash/hose down to the windows/front end/bugs. Provide a water hose and brush, even if you charged for it like a car wash. And a good air pressure hose station that can provide proper pressure., Also, even if you charged for it. i'd also have background music or something like that playing in the bathrooms,, i hate it when they are super quiet,, Give a guy a break when he;s trying to do his business. Little individual enclosed stalls are even better.

I have NEVER set foot inside a public restroom when I've had my camper with me.

Toilets in the mens room all lined up without stall partitions?? Women's restrooms aren't like that!

Why not just move into an assisted living facility, since that sounds like what you want?

I agree with this. If you want seniors to visit your business, be pet friendly. Was enjoying a Bud Light at an outdoor bar over the summer. Smiled when I saw a dog water bowl near the bar.

That's is one of the things I like the most about our NC state campgrounds over the private ones. Not only do we not have to rush to pack but is allows time for us to do something in the morning.

I large number of RVers travel with kids and / or pets. Any campground that prohibited either would probably go out of business.
