RV Park and Campground Briefs
From the Madison (Ind.) Courier:
City council members in Carrollton, Ky., plan to have a website to promote the RV park being built next to the Kentucky River and to receive payments through PayPal.
The council discussed the website Monday (Nov. 28) and scheduled a special meeting Dec. 13 to continue the discussion after council members research other RV parks' rules, regulations, entertainment and rates.
Gradient Shift Advertising and Web Design submitted a $1,750 proposal to create a website and blog, and to set up the ability to receive PayPal payments from the website. Although all the council members agreed a website for the new park was necessary, they decided they wanted to obtain other examples to compare.
From KWTX-TV, Waco:
An electrical fire Monday morning (Nov. 28) destroyed a travel trailer at the Bird Creek Mobile Home and RV Park in Temple.
The Temple Fire Department responded to the fire around 8:30 a.m. and had it under control in less than 10 minutes.
One person, who was not home at the time of the fire, was displaced.
Firefighters say they could not locate a working smoke detector inside the trailer.
The contents were a total loss.
No injuries were reported.
Investigators say a kitchen appliance sparked the fire, which they said was accidental.
Damage was estimated at about $30,000.
From CBS Travel News:
Denali National Park officials say reservations for shuttle buses and campgrounds for the 2012 visitor season will be taken beginning Thursday (Dec. 1).
Reservations can be made online or by telephone, fax or mail for the buses and the park's four largest campgrounds.
Park officials say about 65% of the shuttle bus seats are available for advance reservations and so are 100% of campsites at Riley Creek, Teklanika River, Wonder Lake and Savage River campgrounds.
