I run an entertainment business and have been looking at planning a road trip with it starting probably around March but maybe a little earlier. The idea is to book gigs along the path. I'd like to stay at campgrounds throughout the trip. A couple of things I was thinking.
1) the gated campground
This looks to be an issue as I found out that some of these places close their gates at like eight or nine PM to open them back up at around six to eight in the morning. This poses a problem for me as I would most likely be starting a majority of gigs at 8 or 9 pm. Does anyone have any experience with this? Maybe it was just common in the area I was at. I plan on calling the places to make sure. Can anyone give me insight on how I can camp without attempting to work around this gated concepts which would prohibit me from doing this concept?
2) When campgrounds are open
I find this to be another issue, but not as great. Due to weather, mainly I'll be where it's relatively warm. Could anyone give me general info regarding campgrounds in their area are open and when they are closed? I'm pretty much in the air right now on where I'm going. I'm thinking the east coast to start. Probably try Florida first if I can get down there while the season is on.
3) Working a deal with the campground
Since I run entertainment venues, I was thinking about asking the campgrounds if they'd be up for working a deal out. It would help with lodging for me and could help provide entertainment for them. Anyone think this could work? Is their entertainment provided at campgrounds or is this a long shot? Just trying to think of ways to make this work.
Well this is all I can think to ask right now. Any help is appreciated. I'm sure more questions will follow. As you can see things right now are in gross planning area. I'm not sure if it will work.
