How Do You Convert a Campground to a Jellystone Park?
Summer is just around the corner, and soon your decision to purchase a campground will be seeing a greater return on investment. But if your family campgrounds aren’t seeing the sales you expected despite how hard you’re working, it might be in your best interest to join the Jellystone Park franchise.
Joining the Jellystone Park franchise is a great idea if you’re looking to grow your business beyond renting campsites, you want to separate your family campgrounds from the competition, or if you want to make your family campground that much more fun for kids. According to a Campgrounds of America study, up to 20% of campers said a campsite being kid-friendly is something they value.
But how exactly do you go about converting your campground into a Jellystone Park? Here’s everything you need to know about converting family campgrounds to join the Jellystone Park franchise.
What makes Jellystone Park franchises different?
Jellystone Park camp-resorts have a reputation for being family-friendly, fun, clean, and service-oriented. Compared to other independent or franchised campgrounds, Jellystone Park camp-resorts have a higher revenue per site night and a longer average stay.
Camp-resorts also include special amenities and recreation facilities so the entire family can have a blast on their camping trip. The special amenities Jellystone Park camp-resorts have include swimming pools, miniature golf courses, game rooms, and recreational facilities for families who plan to stay at the camp-resort for three or more days.
What amenities do my family campgrounds need?
To convert your family campgrounds to a Jellystone Park franchise, it’s important that certain amenities be in place. This is because we want each Jellystone Park guest to know what they can expect when they make a reservation at a Jellystone Park camp-resort.
That said, your converting campground is required to have a pool, theatre, playground equipment, recreation center or pavilion, and planned activities program. You’ll also need a minimum of 125 RV sites and four rental units, a store and registration area, dump station, modern comfort stations, laundry areas, and a three to five-year business plan.
If you don’t already have a three to five-year business plan, our Director of Franchise Sales and Development can help. In fact, contacting our Director of Franchise Sales is the first step in the conversion process.
