PANACEA, Fla. (WTXL) — With the economic uncertainties from the coronavirus, we here at ABC 27 are shining a light on businesses that are doing their part to help out the community while keeping their business open.
Camping and RVing is a hobby for some and a way of living for others and, according to one RV park owner, it hasn’t slowed down that much due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Panacea RV Park has been around since 2011 and is open every day of the year.
The park can hold 40 campers right now, but is in the process of creating an additional 45 spaces before the fall.
When the pandemic started, Linda Marshall, the owner of Panacea RV Park says many RVers left but she held on to faith they would return.
“It’s kind of like a turtle, you take your shell where you go," said Marshall. "People would begin to realize that they would still be in their own little cocoon and that their pandemic was not in their cocoon. They felt like it wasn’t what they thought it was going to be so they started to get back on the road. So we’re getting a lot more calls and reservations coming in.”
Marshall says Panacea RV Park is always very clean and being washed down and sanitized even more now.
You can expect to pay $37-$44 per night to park your RV at Panacea RV Park.
