Fla.’s Ja-Mar Travel Parks Extend Family Focus
Operating RV parks comes quite naturally to Lonnie Miller, founder of Ja-Mar Travel Parks in Port Richey, Fla. As reported by Woodall’s Campground Management, before Miller founded the first of his two current locations in 1975, he helped run four other parks with his father, Jay Miller, in Largo, Fla.
In fact, Miller reports, the origin of Ja-Mar Travel Parks’ unique moniker stems from his parents’ names: Jay and Marge.
To this day, the business remains family owned and operated with the help of Miller’s nine children, while day-to-day management is handled by Lonnie’s son, Caleb Miller, manager of both parks for the past 13 years. And the parks’ appeal hasn’t changed all that much over the years.
“If you like being around nice people and you enjoy having fun with others, then you will love staying at Ja-Mar Travel Park,” says owner Lonnie Miller, who initially saw the potential for growth and the need for an RV park in such an optimal location.
The two Ja-Mar Travel Parks, situated within blocks of each other just north of Tampa near Florida’s Gulf Coast, thrive on their convenient geography – less than two miles from the ocean and near many popular attractions such as Busch Gardens Theme Park, The Florida Aquarium, Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo and Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum.
