We actually look for pull through sites as one of criteria unless we are going to provincial camp grounds then we take what we can get.

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:
Survey

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,
Erick
Could you send us the results of your survey when done?

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.
