Camping enthusiasts often face the age-old question: should they camp at a public or private campground? Both options offer unique experiences, but there are several compelling reasons why private campgrounds often come out on top. Today on the blog, your friends at S&H Campground are exploring why private campgrounds are better than their public counterparts and how they provide campers a more comfortable, enjoyable, and memorable outdoor adventure.
1. Well-Maintained Facilities
One of the most significant advantages of private campgrounds is the level of maintenance and care they provide. Private campground owners are vested in keeping their facilities in top-notch condition to attract and retain customers. This means well-groomed campsites, clean restrooms and showers, and regularly-maintained amenities. This is especially true of S&H Campground, where the owners live on the property and actively ensure all guests enjoy their stay here.
2. Enhanced Amenities
Private campgrounds often go above and beyond to create a memorable experience for campers. They frequently offer a wider range of amenities like swimming pools, hot tubs, mini-golf, playgrounds, and even on-site convenience stores. In fact, at S&H Campground, we plan weekend activities that encourage all campers to get involved. From live music and golf cart parades to face painting and candy bar bingo, there’s always something happening at S&H Campground. These additional perks can make your camping trip more comfortable and enjoyable, especially if you’re camping with family or friends.
3. Consistency in Experience
Finally, when you choose a private campground, you often know what to expect regarding amenities, site quality, and overall experience. Public campgrounds can vary greatly in quality and available facilities, so there’s often more uncertainty involved. The Hine family has owned and operated S&H Campground since it opened in 1968, and they are passionate about keeping the family-centered legacy alive. So, you can be sure your experience will be consistently excellent every time.
While public campgrounds certainly have their merits, private campgrounds offer a level of comfort, convenience, and customization that can greatly enhance the camping experience. Contact us today at (317) 326-3208 to discover the difference or request a reservation online.
