“Splash Magic Campground has built a popular following as a family-friendly vacation destination over the last 20 years. The park is known for its on-site water park and family friendly activities, as well as its proximity to several state parks. That made it a great fit for the buyer, who is currently looking to acquire unique campground destinations around the country.”

Rjourney currently owns 21 campgrounds across the nation from Washington to Pennsylvania. Each campground is equipped with amenities and activities designed for solo travelers and families alike.
In addition to its on-site amenities, Splash Magic Campground offers a variety of organized family activities and special events throughout the year. The property also includes a campground store, snack shack, pavilions, laundry and bathroom facilities, and golf cart rentals.
“The leisure space has been a big winner during the COVID-19 pandemic, as boat and RV usage exploded. From an investment perspective, that’s resulted in marinas and campgrounds finding new favor in the eyes of investors. Splash Magic Campground was no different. It was a competitive sale process that resulted in six offers above listing price.”
- Andrew Cantor, Managing Director, Leisure Property Advisors, Colliers
Splash Magic is a key addition to the growing Rjourney platform due to its strong reputation as a family friendly campground. Moving forward, the buyer plans to capitalize on this strong reputation to continue to offer a family-friendly camping environment for year to comes.
