The Cruise Inn brand of RV parks, campgrounds and cabins benefiting owners and guests with 38 locations open or in development throughout North America, announced that it has signed its first location in Florida, adding Compass RV Park in St. Augustine.
Formerly called Indian Forest Campground and under new ownership, Compass RV Park is located just off I-95, just four miles from historic downtown St. Augustine and six miles from some of Florida’s finest beaches.
The park offers over 100 full-hookup RV sites, a brand-new laundry facility and dog run, a community campfire, live entertainment on Saturday nights, and hiking trails. Other amenities include free Internet, public Wi-Fi, DirecTV service, propane, and shuttle service to downtown St. Augustine. Upgrades coming soon include a clubhouse center and vintage trailers and park models to rent.
“Cruise Inn is excited to plant its flag in Florida for the first time, and thrilled that Compass’ new owners have opted to join the brand as they revitalize their park. We look forward to working closely with them and are confident we’ll have an immediate impact on their revenue, profitability and overall property value,” said Scott Anderson, president and CEO of Cruise Inn, in the announcement.
“Scott and his team represent a forward-thinking group of entrepreneurs bringing the hotel concept of making reservations to the ‘camping’ business. They have the ability to provided resources (e.g., bulk purchasing, group advertising/recognition, social media tracking, and call center support, to name a few) to solo owners who may not have the resources to do so on their own,” said Compass RV Park General Manager Jes Santaularia.
