"Which campers would you target?"
All the privately owned campgrounds around this state need a percentage of seasonal campers to stay alive. I've been to a couple that have steadily increasing the number of seasonal sites, since the transients aren't enough to keep them full. One in particular now has only 8 or 10 open sites, and I won't go there anymore, because it's like we're encroaching on THEIR space.
A second one was going to open near their home, and the village folks shot them down on a vote, saying too much traffic/smoke/noise. The great thing is a neighboring town actually invited them to open up there, and it now is a nice place that we've stayed at several times now.....BUT, the last time there, we saw another section intended for the seasonal folks. (A sidebar to them, ALL the seasonal folks there are very nice and friendly. The owner insists on that, without exception),
If you can survive on short stay camping, I think that would be great. Perhaps there's a lot more RV traffic passing by your properties, due to it's location.
Personally, I have no preference to one being extremely close to an interstate or not. It just has to be a nice campground.
It might be an idea to talk to some of the other owners, and find out what hoops, if any, they had to jump through to establish their campgrounds.
Just ramblin' on, sorry.
