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.

"We approached Jayne Cohen after seeing her speak at the OHI prospective owner’s workshop, not realizing we had already indirectly met her through our lenders. Campground Consulting Group (CCG) had assisted our lender with the due diligence research for our entry into the industry, which included purchasing 27 parks across the U.S. The depth and breadth of industry knowledge and expertise within CCG are exceptional and unmatched. They have provided invaluable assistance with best practices, operations, retail, expansion, new development, and sub-metering of electricity. Even with our experienced management team and leaders, we continue to turn to Campground Consulting Group for guidance, support, and feasibility research. We highly recommend Campground Consulting Group!"

-David Ross, CEO, Rjourney, Goldendale WA

"I met Jayne Cohen back in 2018 while investigating entry into the campground business. I was immediately impressed with her thoroughness, first-hand experience in the industry as an owner and operator, and in-depth knowledge of all aspects of the business. We hired multiple campground consultants to learn the business as quickly as possible. Five years and 14 acquisitions and 4 active developments later with over $350 million invested, Jayne and her team are still our go to consultant. She assisted with due diligence, acquisition, and operational auditing on our first two property investments. CCG has also conducted market and feasibility studies for new development and advised us on land planning. They also assisted with operational audits, recreational programming and developing SOP manuals and procedures. Even with the depth of our current organization we still find value in working with CCG and having Jayne just a phone call away. You can learn a lot just having a casual conversion with Jayne and I enjoy catching up with her often."

-Ricky Jenkins, President, The Jenkins Organization and Great Escapes RV Resorts, Houston, Texas

"I can certainly recommend the Market & Competitive Analysis Study along with Feasibility Study services provided by Campground Consulting Group. The developers I have worked with have found the studies to be professional, comprehensive, and beneficial in the decision-making process related to their project."

-Larry Brownfield, Assistant Vice President of Franchise Development Services, Kampgrounds of America, Inc. (KOA)

"The depth and breadth of Jayne and the Campground Consulting Group team’s campground knowledge was truly amazing.   Their feasibility study provided valuable industry insight allowing our team all the tools necessary to make a complete and informed credit decision."

-Eric Manke, Senior Vice President, Business Development Manager, Byline Bank, Chicago, IL

"Having known and worked with Jayne for over 30 years, I can attest to her vast experience in the outdoor recreation industry as an owner, operator, developer, and consultant. These attributes, in combination with one another, enable her to provide tremendous industry knowledge and insight to her clients. I would highly recommend Jayne and Campground Consulting Group to anyone who is looking to expand their existing properties or who may be entering into this industry for the first time."

-Rob Schutter, President, Camp Jellystone, LLC

"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

"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, Port Director, Santa Cruz Harbor, Santa Cruz, CA

"We are adding an RV park and glamping resort to our golf course and wedding event venue. Campground Consulting Group’s feasibility study and financial analysis model needed to be customized to include these businesses and revenue streams. The team’s collective financial and business acumen and ability to understand our blended business model exceeded our expectations. Over the years I have engaged in many studies for different businesses. CCG’s study and financial model is the most comprehensive, detailed, and helpful study we have ever received. We are currently working with CCG and the Nadi Group on land planning and plan to use CCG for construction, operational and marketing guidance going forward."

-David Bay, Entrepreneur and Owner, Pendleton Hills Golf Course, Butler, KY

"It has been a pleasure working with the Campground Consulting Group. They have been very thorough in the process. They have created a detailed feasibility report that illustrates location benefits, competition, market analysis, potential customers and much more. This information is extremely valuable to the City of Rock Island in determining the success of the project."

-John Gripp, Director of Parks and Recreation, City of Rock Island, Illinois

"As a 32-year veteran in the RV industry I can attest to the value of a third party, like Campground Consulting Group, and what they can bring to the table. I had the pleasure of working with Jayne Cohen on a new RV park project and the level of detail she and her team provided is exceptional! It’s so nice to work with a talented group who really know the industry so well and can relate to the questions and concerns of another industry professional."
