(Washington, D.C.) June 7, 2022 – Since the beginning of the pandemic, the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (National ARVC) has been leading the charge advocating to get private RV parks and campgrounds classified as essential businesses, and on Monday that classification finally became official.
Having a pool at your park is a sure way to attract families that want to enjoy some cool summertime fun. But, as you know, operating a public pool also comes with a huge amount of responsibility. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), drowning is the number one cause of unintentional death among children ages 1-4.
Like many National ARVC members, Jo Anne and Harvey Mickelson never planned to own an RV park. They were already the successful owners of a window and door company. Harvey’s parents owned the land adjacent to their business, which made it easy for delivery trucks to access their loading dock.
As the school year comes to an end and summer vacations begin, it means more people taking advantage of their RVs and campgrounds across the country. With this increase in outdoor recreation comes an increase in the use of propane.
Doing what’s right to protect the environment is increasing in importance for many travelers. In fact, according to the 2021 Sustainable Travel Report sponsored by Booking.com, 53% of U.S. travelers believe that people have to act now to save the planet for future generations.
It's another win for inherent risk legislation and campground owners. TheNational Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (National ARVC) has been working closely with the Indiana Manufactured Housing Association-Recreation Vehicle Indiana Council, Inc. (IMHA-RVIC) and Ohio Campground Owners Association (OCOA) to pass two important pieces of legislation in their respective states.
