Michigan Campground Sold, Expanding
A longtime family business in southwest Leelanau County, Mich., has been sold and will be expanding.
Sleepy Bear Campgrounds has been sold and will be part of Indigo Bluffs recreational retreat, according to a news release. The property, previously owned by the Savage family, is undergoing renovations to include a two-story registration building, the addition of 40 lots for site ownership by Class A motorhome owners and a new sanitary sewer system.
“Indigo Bluffs will truly be a unique experience for all travelers,” said proprietor Gary Becker, adding it will be one of only a few destinations in Michigan that blends upscale site ownership with traditional RV and trailer camping. The campground is located near Traverse City, Mich.
“Being so close to (Lake Michigan) and (Sleeping Bear Dunes) appeals to those who are looking for a home away from home, a place they can retreat to life’s simple pleasures while also have the ability to explore.”
To help drive Phase I sales of sites, Indigo Bluffs made its first public appearance at the largest RV show in the country, the Florida RV Trade Association’s Tampa SuperShow, Jan. 13-18.
The property is scheduled to be open to the public in May.
