Branson Campground Sold To Private Group
Ocean Canyon Properties, Inc. (OCP), a privately owned membership camping resort company, acquired Compton Ridge Campground, a campground and lodge open to the public in Branson, Mo., Ocean Canyon said in a written announcement.
Just one mile from Silver Dollar City, one of the largest theme parks in the south-central U.S., Compton Ridge is a public campground. Accommodations include 260 RV sites and a modern 30-room motel.
The campground also features a lodge for campers, two outdoor pools and one indoor pool, a country store, and campground-wide wireless internet access.
Branson’s popularity as a vacation destination makes Compton Ridge a perfect new location for Ocean Canyon to expand its growing system of campground resorts, according to the company.
“Branson is one of the top vacation destinations in the south-central United States. Last year nearly 8 million people visited Branson to enjoy the area’s legendary attractions and the opportunities for family fun. We feel that Compton Ridge will become Ocean Canyon’s flagship camping resort for family entertainment, recreation, and excitement,” said Peter Graffman, executive vice president of Ocean Canyon.
Reopening for the season on April 1, Compton Ridge is Ocean Canyon Properties’ first campground in Missouri and its first campground open to the public. Compton Ridge is now one of eight campground resorts in Ocean Canyon’s campground resort system across the southeastern United States.
