The outdoor hospitality industry has lost an icon and all who knew him have lost a friend. David L. Berg (1957-2021), co-owner of Red Apple Campground in Kennebunkport, Maine, along with his wife, Jane, passed away suddenly at his winter home in Florida on Wednesday, February 3. Jane was by his side.
When Jen and David Svenson bought ARVC member-park Riverbend RV Park & Cabins in Montrose, Colo. last February, it was a mom and pop, cash-only business without a website. They jumped right in and made significant changes, including demolishing an old fishing house and constructing a new office, laundry room, bath houses, a private suite and dog park. They also created a website, acquired a reservation system, upgraded the electrical service and added fiber optic wi-fi service. And that was all in the first 6 months! Then they came up with a new plan.
