Purchasing a Campground
Many people who camp at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park™ Camp-Resorts inquire about what it takes to enter the RV Park and Campground business. As you may imagine, owning a campground is quite different from enjoying the experience at one. As an owner, your job is to create magical experiences for families, which requires a new set of business skills that our franchise can assist you with.
One of the most affordable ways to become a Jellystone Park™ is to buy a campground that might be a “sleeper” – one that has most of the required amenities but needs fixing up. To find campgrounds for sale, simply do an internet search using the words “Campgrounds for Sale.” You’ll see a list of national brokers who are familiar with the Jellystone Park™ system and can assist you with finding the right property. You can also visit www.ARVC.org – the website for the National Association for RV Parks and Campgrounds – for information on the RV Park and Campground industry. ARVC has a list of brokers they recommend as well.
In order to maintain the high standards of operation that Jellystone Park™ guests expect, we require certain amenities to be in place or an expansion plan that includes:
- minimum 70 sites and 4 rental units
- store/registration area
- modern comfort stations and laundry
- pavilion/recreation center
- playground equipment
- arcade/game room
- planned activities program
- dump station

Joey Coleman & Rick Coleman – Tabor City, NC
In 2001, we began a unique challenge to build a campground on our family farm 35 miles inland from Myrtle Beach. People responded to our design of large concrete pads, full hook-ups, plenty of open space, and ultimate customer service. But we soon had “growing pains” with procedures and operations.
In 2003, we joined Jellystone Park™. The operations guidelines set by the franchise provided us with very successful and proven standards. Activity program guidelines, amenity requirements, customer service support, and financial information were all available to our franchise once we became a member of the Yogi Bear™ family. The investment paid immediate returns as customers recognized the value of Yogi Bear™ to our operation.
Look no further if you desire to be a member of the most successful family camping destination organization. Go Yogi Bear™!
