Ever Dreamed of Owning a Campground?

The camping industry has experienced unprecedented popularity in recent years. For those interested in finding an entry point to campground ownership, KOA offers its Buyer’s Workshop, designed to explain precisely what is needed to become an owner/operator in the rewarding campground industry.

It used to be enough to simply provide a clean, safe environment and be a friendly host. But with popularity comes attention and competition, making the camping industry more complex. There are additional ways to camp, with the likes of yurts, boutique lodgings and the advent of glamping; and there are new styles of campers too, with an increasing number looking for unique outdoor experiences and amenities. But if all this sounds daunting, fear not! That’s what friends are for. And that’s where KOA comes in.

Successful entrepreneurs understand that prosperity is contingent on finding the right partners to fill in the gaps in their own skills. Not everyone can be an expert in operations, marketing, guest services and retail at the same time. With more than 60 years of experience, KOA has helped thousands of new owners make their campground dreams come true, with the knowledge and support they need, from our home office to peer support groups of fellow KOA campground owners.

Gerry and Clarissa Hodges, owners of the Santa Fe KOA Journey in New Mexico, knew they wanted to be campground owners when they attended a KOA Buyer’s Workshop in 2021. Gerry said the experience gave them an honest view of campground ownership. “The information we received was honest and essential. They didn’t hide the tough parts, and they helped us understand the details so that we could really determine that owning a campground was the thing to do for us.”

Gerry went on to say the KOA Buyer’s Workshop provides solid information no matter what campground you may be considering for purchase. “But I’m glad we ended up with a KOA,” he said. “The workshop is one of the reasons we went with KOA because it was obvious even then that they were there to support you as an owner, and that’s been true for us.”


Consider this your invitation to join us at our next KOA Buyer’s Workshop. You’ll leave with everything you need to know to jumpstart your campground ownership dreams!
