It is common to purchase an entire campground or to purchase an individual RV site, but it is less common to purchase a single campsite. To find out if you can camp on privately owned land, contact the local planning agency to inquire about zoning restrictions.
To purchase an entire campground, visit a dealer such as TheCampGroundConnection.com or OwnAKOA.com. Campground prices typically range between $500,000 and $2 million depending on the site and location. The majority of campgrounds are located in the eastern United States. In order to purchase a campground, banks typically require a 30 percent down payment. Listings include size of the campground, number of units, price, natural attractions and pictures. Kampgrounds of America is the largest group of private campgrounds in the United States and is signified by the popular yellow and red KOA logo.
To purchase an individual RV lot, visit RVParkStore.com. Lots are available in every U.S. state, and prices range from $20,000 to $100,000. Most lots offer full water and electric hook ups, and many include additional amenities. In many instances lots are sold in pairs or in small groupings.
