If i owned a campground....

I would schedule the grass cutting, blowing and weed eating at a time when there are the least number of campers and people are awake and gone sightseeing. Most likely this would be mid week early afternoon.

Depends on the size of the campground and their resources.............. Sometimes mowing starts at 8 and ends at 4 and starts again the next day......... and......... starts over the next week..........

truth in that. Some are so large and stay full, so their never really is one time better than another. It's almost non stop.

Also some workers are Workampers & they only work say 8 to 4 3 days
a week. So if their job function is to mow the grass, they have to do it
during those 3 days.

I would add 3 pm or 4 pm checkout on Sundays to accommodate weekend campers.

At the Mount Rushmore KOA they would mow and clean up each site immediately after the camper pulled out. I thought it worked pretty well.

I've been to campgrounds that do offer a late checkout, as long as nobody is scheduled to com on the site you are on that day.

I was in a campground just outside of Edmonton, Alberta for a month this past summer. They paid me $64. off my bill if I would cut the lawn where I was camped. I took the offer as it kept me in shape for cutting my own lawn when I got home. I cut it once a week.
