Future Forward. We can help you build a better RV Park AND save you money.

Campground and RV Park development and construction is very different from other building projects. It is very easy to miss critical details in the design/build process and beneficial to have a second set of expert eyes when key decisions are being made. Mistakes made in the design/build process are very costly and difficult to correct. Whether you are building a new 100-acre Camp Resort or renovating/enlarging an older 100 site campground, every campground development project has a unique set of challenges. Most designers, engineers, and property developers have little knowledge of the unique needs of the camping industry. At Campground Consulting Group our technology expert has decades of campground and equipment experience and can become part of your team working with your Architects, Engineers, Contractors, and Vendors. Campground Consulting Group can develop specifications and budgets, manage the quotation and purchase process, and be sure that the design choices made are the best for the profitability and longevity of your business. Our “Future Forward” thinking will keep your team, engineers, and contractors focused on building an outdoor property that is best for your current and future camping market.

"Campground Consulting Group provided valuable insight in assessing a development opportunity for an outdoor visitor accommodation project. We needed expertise to evaluate the opportunity and provide conceptual planning. They were professional, extremely knowledgeable about the market and trends, provided excellent analysis and reporting, and were cognizant of all deliverable timelines. As a team, they provide full-service consulting and understand the outdoor RV and camping business inside and out. I highly recommend their services."

-Marian Olin, CA, Port Director, Santa Cruz Harbor

"I had the pleasure of working with Jayne Cohen and Campground Consulting Group recently after a campground acquisition. Jayne's industry knowledge is superb and her ability to efficiently complete assignments is outstanding. I highly recommend Jayne and her team to campground owners looking for outside expertise to assist with operational challenges."

-Bradd Rubman, Appletree Bay Property Management, Burlington, VT

"I have been working with Jayne Cohen and Campground Consulting Group for many years because they are the premier campground consultants. The knowledge and experience they have is second to none in our industry. Whether they are providing owner operators with operational audits, or buyers and developers with feasibility studies on expansion and development potential, their expertise is invaluable. I regularly refer buyers and sellers to Jayne to assist them with bringing the business to the next level. Both seasoned park operators and those new to the industry will benefit from the level of detail, professionalism, knowledge, and integrity that Jayne and her team offer."

-Mia Caetano Johnson, Northeast Campground Brokers

"Jayne and her team assisted me with due diligence on a park here in Texas that I had under contract. The property was a challenging puzzle given that it is in a desirable part of Texas and is one of the prettiest parks in the entire state. But it's not making money, so I was assessing a turnaround and the risks associated with that process. Jayne brought expertise to the process in numerous ways, but specifically her understanding of highly amenitized parks, extensive cabin operations, and transient park operations/assumptions. Even though I am an experienced RV park owner, she helped me refine my underwriting assumptions and make the right decision. I call her regularly on my own due diligence, development prospects, and market analysis."

- Austin Faught, President, RV Park Management, Austin, TX

"Hickory Hills Camp Resort has been a dedicated client of Campground Consulting Group since 2013. When we signed with Jayne, she assured us we would never pay for her services as an expense. She explained that her recommendations would always make us more money than her consulting fees would cost. Her promise rang true, and we have been making great strides with business improvements ever since. Our business has expanded with new construction in the last few years and Jayne’s direction was crucial to our success. Our bank representatives stated that hiring Campground Consulting Group was the best decision we could have made. I whole heartedly agree with them! "
