That is why I use 2 small shepherd hooks. Can be put anywhere on your site and not affected by wind.

PVC pipe camping sign holder

Saw a neat one in Memphis, TN at the Graceland Campground. Unfortunately did not get a picture. It was made from PVC pipe, was tall enough to hang the sign and their dog's names below. It looked like it was made from 1 1/2" PVC pipe.
Here is a picture of a similar project, you could modify the height and leg dimensions to suit your sign.

This came from another camper solving a problem they had, pretty neat. Check out the Instructable the guy wrote up here:
PVC iPad holder and mount for tent camping
Here is another possibility, closer to what I'm thinking of. Extend the height, extend the leg length, couple of "S" and eye hooks and away you go. The top (Photo A) photo is what I'm trying to get across.

I've been thinking of making something similar for our sign.

Hope this helps some.

We used large cup hooks and hung the sign on a garden flag holder. This is a pic of our old sign. Click image for larger version

We use something similar to this
Bear Welcome Sign Statue - Garden Statues at Hayneedle

There's a lot of RVers around here that use ones like ours. There's a guy at a local flea market that makes them out of wood. His are about 3' high) and he sells them for less than $50.

Wish I hsd our camper here to take pic but I'll try and explain. DH built one out of PVC with a light at the top. Looks almost like a cross with one arm longer than the other to accomodate our sign. Main pole is anchored by a toilet flange that allows you to stake it in the ground. It seperates into 2 pieces of easy storage. We normally put it at the beginning of the drive so its always easy to find our site at night.

Similar to the wooden light pole my brother & s-i-l had. There were a solar light that sat on top of the pole to light up the sign. The was a round plated bottom to keep it standing up. It all came apart for storage.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

we bought a fishing rod holder, made to hold 3 rods, the chain on the sign loops over where the rods lay. It has 2 steel legs that stick into the ground. It cost about $10 at Academy Sports store, maybe at bass pro and other stores also. It wa yellow but I painted it black.
