Should You Buy a Campground?August 25, 2016 9:38 pm
Owner Don Zimmer is selling the six-acre campground in Pincher Creek, Alberta he has owned for 10 years, and is among those who caution dreamy-eyed investors that buying a running a campground is not as easy as some may think.
“It is not hard work,” Zimmer said, “but it is work.”
Zimmer’s Sleepy Hollow Campground & Mobile Home Park was listed at just over $1.1 million and “we have had a lot of tire kickers,” Zimmer said. Most interest was from aging baby boomers.
The campground, like most in Western Canada, is open from May to October and Zimmer said one of reasons he is selling is to get his summer vacations back.
