Campsite or Campground Investments
Many land investors are buying land suitable for use as a campsite or campground as a short-term or long-term means to earn cash income without having to make a large investment in property improvements. At the minimum, campsites require road access, a gravel parking area, picnic tables, and benches, raised platforms on which to set up tents, portable toilets, and fire pits. Upgrades include flush toilets, showers, portable water, electricity, and walking trails. Investors will also need a system for tracking reservations and collecting fees. Investors should always investigate local zoning laws before they buy land or any other real estate.
