What do campers ask of hosts?


We will be spending this summer as first time campground hosts in a state park. My husband is a be prepared kind of guy and had a thought that one thing we might be asked for is band-aids. But beyond that we would be concerned that any first aid might be considered practicing medicine with out a license. So we will stock up, but based on experience, can anybody give us some ideas of things that campers might need help with, or things they might ask? 

Thanks in advance!

Nearest food store, gasoline, bank, diesel, restaurant? Best hike, best easy hike? Weather report? Why isn’t the weather warmer, cooler, drier? Repair advice...RV systems and automotive/truck. Best fishing hole, hunting spot? Can you hold the site next to us for our friends? Can I pay tomorrow?

Be prepared for...can I borrow...will you help me...can you fix?

Much will also depend on "local" circumstances.  For instance, here in Kanab, Utah, the city water pressure is very high, so we generally mention to folks that to hook up to city water, they might need to have a water pressure regulator.  You will also want to perhaps research the area where you are going so as to know what the local attractions are that people might be interested in seeing.  Be prepared to answer state park questions as well as camping questions.  Even if you aren't part of the official park staff for tours or guidance, visitors will still ask you questions.

Before we moved here to Utah last September, I had done some research as to what was in the area, but it wasn't until we got here that we learned that there was so much more to see than the three major national parks in the area and one or two state parks.  Our initial plan for staying in Kanab was to be until November of this year.  However, there is so much to go see here that it might require us to stay longer to see it all.

When we were at Silver Springs State Park in Florida last year, one of the hosts I talked to said he gets asked a few times a week, "What time do they turn the springs on in the morning?" :)

Wow! Lots of helpful info! Fortunately, most of the local stuff we are up on, since it is the area we have lived in most of our marriage. So store, restaurants, gas stations, etc 👍

And even more fortunately, we are inside the campground, after they already will have paid to obtain a gate code 😉

Jumper cables. amp meter, duck tape, gorilla tape, plastic ties, and electrical tape. We were at a SP in Colorado and it only had a dump station Newbies that came and filled up there grey tanks taking showers in RV filled grey tanks and asked about dumping on ground. I let a family borrow my Grey boy portable tank. They left it in campsite and drove off. I don't lend out anything else unless I am there with it.
We did our first last summer and we have got to say it was the greatest. Our host friends helped tremendously and we did a lot together when we were not volunteering. This summer we bound for Alaska and Klondike CG at Soldotna, Ak. 2 days a week 10 hrs a day and FHU.
Have Fun

 Hubby says when it comes to tools and equipment he won't loan.  but jumper cables, a few zip ties and a roll or two of tape could be helpful. 

Have fun in Alaska! Let us know how it goes!
