Margaritaville Expanding RV Resorts Nationwide

October 13th, 2021


After the tremendous success of the first two Camp Margaritaville RV Resorts in Lake Lanier, Georgia and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, the brand has plans to expand nationally with 30 to 50 new locations in the next five years.

Business Insider has more:

Margaritaville’s brand might not immediately evoke RVing. But so far, Camp Margaritaville has seen massive success at its first two locations in Lake Lanier, Georgia and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, it said.

The first Camp Margaritaville RV Resort and Lodge opened in Lake Lanier — about an hour north of Atlanta — following a “happy accident,” Jim Wiseman, the president of development at Camp Margaritaville, told Insider.

When Margaritaville had plans to sublease part of Lake Lanier, there was already a defunct RV park sitting unused on the land.

Instead of scrapping the camp, Margaritaville decided to revive and rebrand the resort as “Camp Margaritaville.”

The revamped camp reopened in spring 2019. In retrospect, this timing was fortuitous: Shortly after, the US underwent a pandemic-induced camping and RV boom.

This road travel trend then helped boost Camp Margaritaville’s business, which has since seen “off the charts” reception and reviews, according to Wiseman.

Today, in honor of National Voter Registration Day, we are excited to announce the participation of two well-known Alabamians.

Legendary singer and songwriter Jimmy Buffett and country music sensation Riley Green are featured in this year’s media blitz. Advertisements will start running in early October and continue through Thanksgiving.

The campaign consists of statewide television and radio ads, as well as digital advertisements, and through our partnerships with colleges and universities throughout the state.

Jimmy Buffett Performs at Aspen Festival

September 6th, 2021


Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band performed at the Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Experience on Sunday to close out the festival.

The Aspen Times has a great article on Jimmy’s connections to Aspen over the last few decades.

Buffett formed a long-running softball team in the Aspen rec league, called the Downvalley Doughboys, and landed a Corona beer sponsorship for the team. Tim Mooney, a J-Bar bartender at the time, recalled that the Doughboys got a four-case beer allotment per game and that Buffett once flew New York Yankees third baseman Graig Nettles to town to play as a Doughboy for a championship game. Their primary rival was Frey’s team, the Werewolves.
