Holiday business booms at local campground

Posted: Updated:

One local campground is booked for the holiday weekend, and owners say the improving economy is helping their business this year.

"Business has been good this year," said owner Bill Miller. "We started out a little slow because of the weather, the cold weather in the springtime, but it's picked up considerably."

The Fourth of July weekend is one of the busiest times of the year for the Stony Ridge Campground in Perrysburg. Miller purchased the KOA campground with his wife about five years ago. The two of them work more than 250 days straight, from March to November.

According to Miller, families are more confident about going on vacation thanks to the economy improving.

"I think it's because people are confident that they're going to maintain their employment," he said. "If they have a job, they're going to spend a little more money on recreation."

Miller says a campground offers a cheaper vacation for families who can rent a campsite for less than $45 per day.

Stony Ridge also offers activities for children. This weekend will include an ice cream social to benefit children with cancer.
