KOA Offers Workshop for Prospective Campground Owners

BILLINGS, Mont. – An expert-led, two-day event for prospective campground owners, the Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA) Buyer’s Workshop will be held at the Tucson/Lazydays KOA Resort this April. Participants will dive into essential analysis of purchasing, marketing and operating a prosperous campground during the workshop.

The campground industry continues to be one of the most vital and fastest-growing segments of the leisure travel industry, with more than 58 million U.S. households camping at least once in 2022. The KOA Buyer’s Workshop will provide potential campground owners with the guidance they need to make informed decisions as they consider campground ownership.

“Camping is becoming a primary mode of travel for a large segment of the population,” said Larry Brownfield, Kampgrounds of America Inc.’s assistant vice president of franchise development. “As more people turn to camping for travel, the expectation of what a campground provides has increased. Our goal is to provide prospective owners the resources and tools to begin their new venture on solid footing.”

Throughout a two-day workshop, attendees will learn critical themes important when considering purchasing or developing a campground. Topics of discussion will include factors to consider when buying an existing campground, a comprehensive look at campground ownership, an overview of the camping industry and hospitality trends and the unique insurance needs of campgrounds from industry and KOA experts.

Gerry Hodges, owner of Santa Fe KOA Journey and a previous attendee, credits the KOA Buyer’s Workshop with helping him make the leap to campground owner.

“The information we received was honest and essential,” said Hodges. “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.”

“Future campground owners will leave the two-day workshop with the resources and knowledge to join the camping industry with confidence,” Brownfield said. “With over 60 years of industry experience, KOA has the industry-leading track record to help owners achieve real success.”

The cost of the KOA Buyer’s Workshop is $300 per person or $350 per couple and includes all materials as well as a selection of meals.

The KOA Buyer’s Workshop is slated for April 1-2 at Tucson/Lazy Days KOA Resort in Tucson, Ariz. Click here to sign up for the KOA Buyer’s Workshop or contact Deedee Flanagan at 800-548-7239 or [email protected]. To learn more about owning a KOA, visit ownaKOA.com.
