Ice cream bar you could easily triple that during the warm season.
I think the important thing to remember is that you're not in business to fill everyone's needs.. you're in it to turn over product. I would focus on "immediate need" and unique items. Not items that most folks would just wait to buy until they make a trip into town.
Unique items are one of my favorites. Locally made snacks, fresh produce, cheeses, sausage dogs, etc. Heck.. if you sold fresh daily local eggs for $.50 a pop... or had someone bringing in fresh homemade soup and bread for lunch for $5 a bowl.. I'm a buyer. Get a local business to do all the dirty work for just over their cost and let them display their business cards.
Helps draw in folks that would normally steer clear of "camp stores" as well.
Just my two cents.
