I'm not really sure where to post this, so I'll start here. My question is about propane availability in campgrounds. A new RV park is being developed locally and they are installing propane connections at each site. I understand the pros and cons but I've never seen this before. Has anyone run across propane access like this?

I have not seen or heard of campsite propane.

Maybe they are setting up for park models. I don't know enough about them to say if that makes sense. But no normal RV is set up to accept piped in gas. And that is usually Natural Gas not propane.

I stayed at a campground that had propane piped to the sites, connected to a grill that was a permanent part of the site.

Very likely I see he is from AZ. The RV parks setup for the park models & rent the unsold lots for transient RV's.

Long term leases are the goal it appears here.

Maybe avoid all the speculation and just stop in and ask - as a future, curious customer.

One other possibility, Is this area one where wood fires are frowned upon? Maybe they are looking at rental propane fire pits.

So far never seen that up here in our highly regulated northeast, add hard winters as another possible reason. Makes sense about park models.
