RV Park and Campground Briefs
From the Alva Review-Courier:
Two couples have taken a stab at quieting the talk about man-camps and created an RV park at Dacoma, 80 miles north of Oklahoma City. Sid and Evelyn Penner along with Ron and Marilyn Kinnard embarked on their new endeavor in October, and already spots are ready for the filling.
The Penners said the water lines, sewer lines, and electric lines are all brand new, and the hookups are all on individual lines. (Water is Alva city water.)
All lots are or soon will be graveled and sanded and are very level. A large storm shelter is available, and the park even pays for water, sewer, and trash removal. All sites are 30 and 50 amps, and currently there are 17 sites available. The couples said a total of 41 will be coming available soon. The lots are 25 feet by 70 feet and the monthly charge depends on the trailer size and air conditioners.
K&P RV Park is located at 11th Street and Appalachian in Dacoma.

The entire Texas Renaissance Festival facilities will grow to more than 600 acres with the addition, almost a complete square mile.
“We are really excited about expanding our campground expansion which will be complete in time 2012 season,” said Texas Renaissance Festival General Manager, Terre Albert. “We have seen such an increase in the number of campers over the past seven seasons that we wanted to make sure we could comfortably accommodate everyone for years to come.”

From The Associated Press:
Maine officials say they’ll accept reservations for one of the state’s most popular campgrounds, Sebago Lake State Park, later this week.
The Bureau of Parks and Lands reservation system will be open for Sebago reservations only on Wednesday (Feb. 1) and for all state park campgrounds at 9 a.m. Feb. 6.
The starting dates for online reservations are being split to reduce wait times for campers.
There will be no fee increase for sites at the state park campgrounds. Fees do vary from campground to campground, with the highest fees for non-residents who want sites with water and electricity hookups.
Campers can make reservations at Maine state campgrounds online at http://www.campwithme.com. They can also call state offices, mail in reservations or drop them off.
