This is the time of the year when many in the RV park, campground and glamping segments have their noses on the grindstone as campers are hitting the road.

Usually, there is a dip in news during the summer months as the outdoor hospitality industry sits on an autopilot of sorts as park owners deal with campers.

However, COVID-19 seems to have skewed this to some degree. More park owners are reporting that they are working on expansions and other projects during the busy summer months, something that wasn’t done very much in the past.

The top news items for this past week are below.
