Where are you located?
Does the NEC apply to this park or do you have other requirements to comply with your local electrical code?
Art 551 of the NEC is the section and RV parks and gives you the minimum requirements.
Do you have a layout for the sites you could send to me?
Look at the toolbar and the green icon next to You Tube will allow you to attach a Jpg to send to me.
With these answers we can go ahead and calculate the minimum service requirements for the park and anything else you might need.
