Podcast 089 - Bayley's Campground Celebrates 50 Years

Aug 11, 2020

When a business is planning for their 50th Anniversary celebration, the focus is almost always on the loyal customers that continue to come back year after year, generation after generation. That’s exactly what the Bayley family thought last year – as they planned for this year. 2020 is not the year that most of us envisioned, and certainly not in the RV and outdoor hospitality industries.

We are not going to focus on how we got to where we are today, instead we are going to have an informal conversation with Gaelan Bayley, a third generation Bayley and son of Tom Bayley, the General Manager. Gaelan is focused only on the customers that frequent one of the Northeast’s favorite family camping resorts. Over 700 sites and an incredible list of daily activities, four heated pools, a separate adult entertainment area and plenty to see in the Old Orchard Beach and Portland areas.

This year also featured the opening of a new restaurant and arcade area after the former building burned to the ground last June. Nothing is going to stop this juggernaut as they continue to improve the grounds and add new cabins and rental trailers each off-season.

Join us as Gaelan tells us about the season and what campers are looking for this year. He’ll let us know why families keep coming back to this popular campground year after year.
