ARVC: New Hampshire Parks Upgrading
Despite the recession, RV parks and campgrounds in New Hampshire are going forward with improvement projects, according to the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC). The association pointed out these projects in a recent news release:
- Bethel Woods Campground, Holderness: This park is remodeling the bathrooms in its recreation hall and adding wireless Internet service to roughly 50 campsites this year.
- Crown Point Campground, Strafford: This park added cable TV service to 50 of its campsites during the winter. The park also completely remodeled its store and registration building and made it more energy efficient by installing new insulation and Energy Star windows and new indoor and outdoor fluorescent lights. The park also installed attic fans to reduce attic heat as well as new Energy Star air conditioners and coolers. "We are also installing timers on the pool system to reduce pump usage during the slow season," said park owner Jay Gagnon.
- Twin River Campground, Cottages & RV Park, Bath: This park is planning to build a new bathhouse and make improvements to its playground.
- Whit's End Campground, West Ossipee: This park has invested nearly $8,000 this year in various swimming pool area upgrades. Additional investments are being made to improve campsites and park buildings and to obtain new playground equipment.
- Woodmore Campground, Rindge: This park has invested in cleanup activities resulting from an ice storm that hit the area in December. However, the park did manage to build a new pavilion, which it completed in March.
