Ways To Make Extra Money Each Season


Autumn is the most beautiful season and a wonderful time for camping. A great way to showcase that beauty and make some extra money is by photographing it. Keepsakes like postcards, t-shirts and mugs can be emblazoned with your images and cherished forever by campers. This is a good way to grab camper's addresses too. You will need to get their current home address to send them their mugs. You can charge a little more for your time and picture. Use a service such as Vista Print to order the keepsakes. 

This season also happens to be when days start to become shorter. Don't let your campers get stuck in the dark. Having headlamps, flashlights and lanterns available will make everyone's camping experience brighter.


Winter isn't everyone's favorite season but it is the most wonderful time of the year. Holiday ornaments and decorations are just one way you can spread cheer and make some extra cash. If your campground is in a part of the country that gets cold, you probably already have firewood available but, for most campers, it's all about what's roasting on top of the bonfire. Having marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate bars is a perfect way to make a little extra money and make your campground just that much sweeter.


In like a lion and out like a lamb. A day of camping can be totally ruined by those roaring spring storms. However, if your campers have the option to buy their family a set of ponchos at their campground so that they can still enjoy their trip, you've just saved the day and made some extra cash in the process. If you enjoy gardening you might also consider selling bouquets of flowers or fresh veggies around this time of year.


Though Summer is definitely the best season of all, some folks just can't take the heat. An often overlooked part of RV'ing during this season is how much heat comes through the windows. Having reflective window coverings available for purchase can make a huge difference for a family trying to stay cool. Many RV's also do not come equipped with an ice maker and even the best coolers will eventually be full of melted ice. Having ice for sale at a campground is a great way to bring in extra money in the summertime. If you're keeping ice frozen, you can also keep popsicles frozen which are a great treat for campers of all ages.
