Northgate Resorts Marks Record Year in 2023, Sets Plans for 2024

Northgate Resorts, a prominent player in the outdoor hospitality industry, has announced a record-breaking year in 2023, with significant expansions and improvements across its nationwide properties. 

This achievement not only underscores the company’s growth but also reflects the burgeoning demand in the campground and RV park sector.

In 2023, Northgate Resorts hosted an impressive 651,169 campers across its various locations. 

This figure includes a diverse demographic of 383,345 adults and 315,590 children (267,824 children from 4 to 17 years of age and  47,766 under 4), highlighting the family-oriented nature of their facilities. The company’s inclusive approach also extended to pet owners, with 34,980 pets, primarily dogs, being welcomed.

The year was marked by the introduction of 419 new cabins across 28 camp-resorts, enhancing the accommodation options available to guests. This expansion is indicative of the growing trend in the campground industry towards offering varied lodging choices, catering to different preferences and budgets.

A significant development in 2023 was the opening of the first Margaritaville Camp-Resort in Louisiana, a move that illustrates Northgate’s strategy of diversifying its brand portfolio. The resort chain also added 9 new water features and 2 mountain/alpine coasters, emphasizing the importance of unique attractions in drawing guests.

The inaugural Campout Concert at Camp Fimfo Waco was another highlight, showcasing Northgate’s commitment to providing diverse entertainment options. 

Tessa McCrackin, chief marketing officer of Northgate Resorts, expressed pride in the company’s achievements and anticipation for continued growth.

“We’re looking forward to another exciting year welcoming families across the country to Jellystone Park ™, Margaritaville, and Camp Fimfo properties,” McCrackin said. 

Looking ahead to 2024, Northgate Resorts is set to introduce astro-tourism programming, aligning with the solar eclipse on April 8. This initiative, particularly at Texas locations like Camp Fimfo Waco and Texas Hill Country, and Jellystone Park™ Hill Country, Guadalupe River, and Tyler, demonstrates the company’s innovative approach to event programming.

The year will also witness the first full operational year of Willow Ridge at Camp Fimfo New Braunfels. This full-service private event facility, completed in mid-2023, offers both indoor and outdoor event spaces, catering to a range of functions. 

Northgate Resorts’ success story is a testament to the potential of the campground and RV park industry. The company’s focus on diversifying accommodations, introducing unique attractions, and offering varied entertainment options serves as a valuable model for other operators in the sector.

The company’s growth trajectory and innovative strategies offer insights and inspiration for campground and RV park owners and outdoor hospitality operators. Northgate’s achievements highlight the importance of adapting to evolving consumer preferences and the benefits of investing in property improvements and diverse programming.

As the industry continues to evolve, Northgate Resorts’ approach exemplifies the dynamic nature of the campground and outdoor hospitality sector. The company’s ability to attract a wide range of guests, from families to pet owners, and its focus on creating memorable experiences are key factors in its success.
