Campground Design 

One of the areas of true passion for Jeff and Kathy is designing public campgrounds to meet the contemporary needs of campers within the context of ensuring a high quality outdoor experience. For decades, Jeff and Kathy have traveled North America reviewing and critiquing campgrounds to discover the best design practices, and then applying those findings to the design of campgrounds in regional and state parks. 

Additional project examples include:
  • Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground 
Project Profile: Bunker Hills Campground (Original and Expansion) – Anoka County Parks 

Schoenbauer Consulting, LLC was selected in concert with MSA to design the expansion of an existing campground originally designed by Brauer & Associates, Ltd, in which Jeff was also the lead designer and project manager at the time. For the expansion, Jeff was again the lead designer, where he prepared several design options, a final design, and design details for various types of campsites. 

The campground expansion includes 21 wooded sites with electric and a new bathhouse facility. A center piece of the design was ensuring that each site could accommodate larger RVs that frequent the regional park during the summer. The original campground included 44 wooded sites (24 have water and electric) and 20 rustic sites, along with shower facilities, restroom buildings, dump station, and security gate. Other design consideration include paying attention to design details such as spacing of sites, grades, orientation, and screening for privacy.  

Paying attention to the details that matter .... 
... results in high quality camping experiences!
