Business is good for a campground owner in Minnesota who saw a rise in numbers this year, a report said.

Labor Day is a day that marks the end of summer. Many people spent this weekend trying to get more sun before returning to work or school. 

Local campers are hopeful that COVID cases numbers will remain low so they can return to normal throughout the winter and fall. 

“I believe it’s better than it was. Barb Philip, the owner of Marion’s KOA campgrounds, stated that she just believes it’s been an excellent year.

Philp’s family has been running KOA for 32 years. She said that numbers this year were between 50-60 percent higher than in the period of the pandemic.

“People need to get outside. Why would you buy a camper for 100,000 dollars and leave it in your driveway?” She said.

She is excited about the venture and to see people explore again.

“That’s what keeps our business going,” Philip stated. “This is what keeps us in business.”

She stated that KOA is a wonderful place to go on vacation, masked or not, and for everyone vaccinated.

“They are just residing in their little bubbles,” Philip stated that they are in their own space, whether they have received vaccination or not.
