Buying an existing campground can be a good investment, especially if it is well located. Think about the style of campground and the region that interest you, and decide how much you are willing to invest.
Don’t rely on appearances. Examine all the different options and calculate the real* value of each one.
Talk to the experts. One chapter in the Guide de gestion de l’exploitant de camping deals with buying an existing campground.
Make sure the campground complies with environmental standards concerning wastewater disposal and the supply and distribution of drinking water. If you buy a campground without first checking the condition of the facilities, you could be obliged to refit the campground to bring it up to standards – possibly a very costly proposition.
You should also check whether the campground has been classified, and ask for the results of the classification visit. The classification program can be a good source of information on the services that are currently or could be offered by the campground.
