With 58 years’ experience in campground operation, KOA knows what it takes to turn your dream of ownership into a reality. The workshop presenters include: KOA Director of Franchise Development, KOA Franchise Development Manager; representatives from Independence Bank, the primary lender for KOA franchisees for both acquisition and capital needs, and a representative from Leavitt Recreation & Hospitality Insurance. You will also spend time with a group of KOA owners/operators to better understand a day in the life of an owner.

Hosted at a KOA campground, this workshop gives you the unique opportunity to see the inner-workings of a campground and a chance to get more hands-on learning and a better understanding of what it really takes to own and operate your own campground.

Our workshop will help you decide if owning a campground is right for you. And, while we’ll talk about owning a KOA franchised campground, (whether by acquisition or conversion), our primary goal is to provide you with information that will help you make an informed decision about whether owning a campground – any campground – is the right personal and professional decision for you.

The primary focus of this workshop is for an owner/operator scenario. Corporate or offsite ownership groups please contact KOA to set up a personalized consultation based upon your specific requirements.

EXAMPLES OF SOME OF THE MANY WORKSHOP TOPICS COVERED:

  • Benefits of Campground Ownership
  • Factors in Buying an Existing Campground
  • Understand Asking Price & Valuation (primarily owner/operator scenarios)
  • Acquiring the necessary funding
  • Moving from Contract to Closing
  • The scope of Campground Insurance required
  • Overview of owning and operating a campground
  • Understanding KOA Franchising and the KOA Franchise System
