You maybe wondering what I do at PPC as we refer it as, after all Pecan Park Campgrounds is a mouthful.
We presently work 6 days and have 7 days off, then work 3 days and have 5 days off. Starting in the New Year we will work 6 days and have 8 days off, then another 6 days work and another 8 days off.

We presently work 6 days and have 7 days off, then work 3 days and have 5 days off. Starting in the New Year we will work 6 days and have 8 days off, then another 6 days work and another 8 days off.
The day starts at 9am until 6pm with an hour off for lunch, at 9pm I close the indoor swimming pool and do a security check. Generally during the week the security check is quiet but during the weekend, it can be a few hours work as the party revelers tend to get wound up and as we have a quiet time between 10.30pm and 7am we do mean quiet time, anything above a whisper is considered too loud.
First thing in a morning I check all of the sites for spaces to see who has left early and who is still on a site. The well water sample is taken and checked for quality, plus the swimming pool water is tested for chlorine and pH levels.
We sell propane on site so often I get called to fill tank bottles and or Motor Home built in tanks. We all have to be certified to do this in Texas and strict guidelines are followed, no tanks over 12 years old and any damaged or rusty tanks get refused service.
The rest of the day gets taken up with leaf raking, grass mowing, painting, weeding, picking up trash, fixing water leaks on the 200 taps. Cleaning the 6 bathrooms, the 2 laundry rooms which house 4 dryers and 4 washers in each building.
Assisting our clients answering questions, advising what restaurants or shops to get this that and the other.
The time flies past and there is always something to be taken care of.
During all of this David the owner is working alongside and if not alongside he is always available for instant assistance a great guy. His wife Rachael works in the office and supports the office staff, the phone never stops ringing and it’s a very busy RV Park.
