California RV Park Day Covers Protection Against Complaints

Thu Apr 6, 2017

Campground operators in California are increasingly becoming the targets of discrimination lawsuits alleging their failure to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

But, according to a release from the California Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (CalARVC), park operators can proactively protect themselves from such complaints by hiring an independent certified access specialist to survey their park and file recommendations and plans for improvement with the California Department of Architects, according to Jason James of Temecula, California-based MHRV ACE LLC.

James talked about the dangers of discrimination lawsuits during a March 28 presentation to nearly 90 park operators who attended the spring RV Park Day event at Calistoga RV Park in Calistoga, which was organized by CalARVC, according to a story by Woodalls Campground Management.

James’s presentation was both alarming and informative to park operators. He noted that the ADA was originally enacted in 1991 on the premise that no one should be denied access or services because of a disability.
