|Camping and Recreational Vehicle (RV) popularity have increased dramatically over the past few years. As a result, about 60% of households can say someone in their house has camped. Campgrounds provide the opportunity to vacation away from your home while seeing beautiful sites and staying safely away from people. But, before you take that step, consider these reasons to invest in a campground.|
Earning Passive Income
If you want to invest in a campground, it is a great way to combine your love of the outdoors and earn income. Campground and RV parks are some of the highest-yielding investments across all real estate options. You can expect to receive somewhere between 10% to 20% of your investment. When purchasing a franchise, especially if it is an already established franchise, you follow the formula given to you and hire the right people. As a result, you can enjoy the campground while earning money.
Let the Campground Do the Work
When you invest in a campground that is a franchise, you already have a guide and mentor in the business. Franchises often provide training programs. They want you to be successful just as much as you want to be. These programs may be zero cost for you. The program ensures that you know all of the camping trends allowing you to stay current and achieve success. You can also benefit from their marketing program. When a franchise markets, they are marketing for the entire brand, of which you are now a part.
Customers Know What to Expect
When you invest in a campground, the franchise provides you with strict guidelines to follow. This provides the same experience to customers no matter which franchise they visit. This encourages customers to come to your campground because it is part of the brand they know and trust. When you are purchasing a franchise, it is easier to secure funding because lenders know what to expect from these franchises.
Consider these facts when you want to invest in a campground. This is a great way to make passive income while you are working at a different job or enjoying the luxuries of your own campground. No matter what you choose, you cannot go wrong with investing in a campground franchise.

Daren & Lorraine Carlson – Hocking Hills, OH
The Jellystone Park brand has made a huge difference in our business. If we had 50 more sites and more cabins, they’d be filled every weekend.
Theresa Isaacson – Caledonia, WI
We’re going to be entering our 13th season, and I sure would hate to own a property without being Yogi branded. The reason we really like Jellystone Parks is because of the support behind us. With 80 other parks in the system, we have 80 sources of question-and-answer type people to go to. The support is wonderful. The franchise, the CJS system itself – their … Read more
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… Read more
Rick Spear – Estes Park, COWe’ve been in the Jellystone Park franchise system for 20 years this year. It was a family endeavor to begin with, but over those 20 years we’ve seen significant growth of our campground. In particular, just the last three years in a row we’ve been up double digits, 10-11% points three years in a row. We’ve really been coming on strong, and continue to see good… Read more

Chip Smith – Monticello, IAWe got into the Jellystone Park brand at the beginning of last year. This is the end of our first season. We are pretty excited about it. What I like most about the brand is the fact that they are drawing in families from three hours away. They all know what we’re there for, and they’re willing to spend a longer time at our park than just the weekend. The inv… Read more

Erv & Marilyn Banes – Frankenmuth, MI
We decided to convert to the Jellystone Park™ system in 1996 because the market conditions were changing. Several of our colleagues had converted and grown in the process. We found that by changing our customer base to families, rather than seniors, we expanded.
The advantage of a Jellystone Park™ is that it is so much more alive than the average park. Plu… Read more
