Is there a policy with most campgrounds on selling products at your campsite?

I am sure if they sell the same thing in the camp store they wouldn't be to impressed with you.

I I would not do that. I have been in business for a while. You never try to compete with what is on your street. SO folks, if I have something to sell that is not sold at the camp store, is that OK?

Typically there is.
And frankly, it's just not what CG's are for - IMO.

No. Nobody wants the traffic your "shop" would bring. Find a Farmer's Market or flea market.

If you talk to the campground owner you might be able to negotiate using a room for a free seminar about your products. I have heard of this happening.

I am retiring and selling our coffee shop. I have been roasting our own coffee for 8 years and want to get a small roaster and keep roasting while we are on the road. Just thought if fellow campers wanted great coffee, I could sell to them.

I've seen (occasionally) someone will hang a sign on their camper ... Amway Representative Here. Or Jacks craft items, come-on-in! Or even Girl Scout Cookies here. But they don't put out a flea market style table. Usually, handled very quietly and discretely.

Allowed? Usually not. Maybe in a private campground the owner may permit it (if he gets a kick-back). But you should always check with the owner of the campground first. He/she may have you set up a booth at a specific spot, rather than from the front door of your camper.

State Parks... very much frowned upon, but if you aren't making a scene, you may go unnoticed by DNR officials.

But really ... campgrounds are NOT the place to solicit your business. I for one would never stop in at your campsite if you advertised something for sale.
