Carefree RV Resorts is ramping up production of 26 videos that highlight the company and its resorts across Florida and Texas.
“These videos will make it easy for consumers to quickly see what Carefree RV Resorts is all about,” said Taylor Pohl, social media coordinator for Carefree. “The videos not only highlight the friendly hospitality and activities we provide at each park, but the clean, big-rig friendly RV sites and park models that are available at Carefree RV Resorts across the country.”
While the initial video shoots were done in Florida and Texas to help promote the resorts for the upcoming winter season, additional videos will be produced in the near future to highlight Carefree parks in other states, including New Jersey, California, Massachusetts and Ontario, Pohl said, adding, “Eventually, we will be able to offer consumers a complete video tour of all our properties,”
The first round of videos was produced by Dallas, Texas-based Distillery Media, including a general Carefree RV Resorts video that can be viewed by clicking here: http://www.youtube.com/user/CarefreeRVResorts/videos

RVC Outdoor Destinations, a provider of high-quality outdoor resorts, announced that Lake Raystown Resort will be re-flagged as an RVC Outdoor Destination in March of 2014. The Entriken, Pennsylvania property was developed by Jules Patt in 1984 and is one of the finest outdoor destinations in the country. Lake Raystown Resort’s addition into the RVC collection of premium outdoor hospitality properties will coincide with its 30th Anniversary.
Brother and sister duo, Josh Patt and Samantha Patt Kozak, recently purchased their father’s interest in Lake Raystown Resort and continue to operate the over 400-acre property that includes a 52 room Lodge, 79 cabins and villas, 221 RV sites, a 650 slip marina, the Wild River Water Park and a 22,000 square foot state of the art Conference Center.
Lake Raystown Resort is the second separately owned property to be flagged an RVC Outdoor Destination. In addition to providing long-term asset management and branding, RVC will provide capital for improvements and expansion.
“We are very excited to have Samantha and Josh joining the RVC movement and honored that they are adding their wonderful Lake Raystown Resort to RVC’s collection of upscale outdoor recreational properties. They are great operators who add a lot to what we do, and their property is already one of the best outdoor destinations in the country. RVC is redefining outdoor recreation and camping by providing unique environments that provide a consistently high-quality guest experience,” said Andy Cates, RVC’s President.
“Our family has been committed to high quality outdoor hospitality for three decades. RVC is the first company and brand that reflects what we have developed at Lake Raystown Resort. Also, they bring collaborative resources and support that will allow Lake Raystown Resort to grow and improve,” said Josh Patt, co-owner. His sister and co-owner Samantha Patt Kozak added, “Ever since I first read about what RVC was doing, I was excited because their efforts were so similar to what we have been doing here for many years. We have always searched for a way to expand our market reach and to be a part of something larger, and after spending over a year getting to know the RVC team and seeing some of their resorts, we are very pleased to be a part of the RVC family.”
