ARVC Identifies Kansas Park Upgrades
The National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) this week identified some of the private RV parks and campgrounds in Kansas that are undergoing improvements. The list includes:
Capital City KOA, Topeka: This park has invested about $60,000 in numerous improvements this year, including the addition of a large playground and the paving of its entry road with new asphalt. The park has also refurbished a 1947 Farmall Tractor and Hay Trailer, which it plans to use for weekend and special event hay rides around the campground and through the park’s several acres of native tall grass and ponds. The park is also investing in new activities and entertainment, including pancake breakfasts, bingo, movies, tie dye T-shirt classes and ice cream socials.
High Plains Camping, Oakley: This park has invested more than $45,000 in various improvements this year. The money has been used to provide 50-amp service to eight more campsites, provide shower renovations, the installation of new windows and doors and roofing and the refurbishing of the park’s mini golf course with new grass, additional flowers and fresh paint on the structures. The park has also purchased new games for its Rec & Relaxation Sunflower Barn and bought pet agility equipment for its dog run.
Lawrence / Kansas City KOA, Lawrence: This 78-site park has spent roughly $100,000 in various improvements this year, such as adding a new park model Kamping Lodge, building a new playground with a jumping pillow, remodeling the camp store and adding a fudge counter and pizzeria. The park has also purchased a tractor for use with hay rides for the kids and added other outdoor activities, including outdoor movie nights. The park also plans to plant a cornfield and pumpkins for its new Halloween activities later this year.
