campground-ownership1Do you love camping and have considered buying a campground to provide a livelihood for yourself? Before you take the big plunge, you may want to attend a seminar in Nashville on May 3 and 4 conducted by KOA. The workshop will provide a chance to see a campground’s inner workings and an opportunity to acquire hands-on learning as well as an occasion to get a clearer picture about what is involved in the ownership and operation of the venture.

Topics will include KOA franchising, pricing models and understanding the industry along with the buying and selling process. Guest speakers will talk about financing and insuring a campground, and KOA campground owners will discuss their experiences and answer questions.

The cost is $275 per couple or $175 per person. To make reservations call 800-548-7239. Hotels within two miles of the KOA include Best Western Suites on Music City Circle, Comfort Inn Opryland Area and Fairfield Inn & Suites at Opryland.

Before making this momentous decision, get information from other sources, too. While this seminar should be helpful, it’s best to also seek input from neutral parties.
