Parkers Crossroads RV Park and Campground was developed in 1974, originally as a KOA (Kampers of America) campground. The property was privately owned for roughly 20 years prior to when Bill and Sue, the current owners, took ownership of the campground about two and a half years ago. Bill and Sue were led into the lodging industry when they both had the desire to "try something different" after Bill had retired from law enforcement. Sue had over 20 years of experience with hospitality, as she had previously assisted with operating several casino resorts. "We wanted to venture out on our own," Bill expresses. Regarding what the owners' jobs presently entail, Sue currently runs the campground's store, while Bill is primarily in charge of the establishment's maintenance. The owners have come to find that their favorite part of the job is "meeting new people." 

Since Bill and Sue first acquired the property, the campground has undergone a number of updates and renovations. Remodeling was done to the on-site store, two of the bathrooms, and the swimming pool. The owners also remodeled the Airbnb unit and made it an available accommodation for visitors to reserve. As for future plans, Bill and Sue are planning to potentially add a new playground to the premises and remodel the cabin.
