It is a form of real estate ownership. Campers own a property and share in the responsibility of its maintenance. Each shareholder has a voting right and receives a proprietary lease granting exclusive use of the campsite they purchased.
Every buyer owns a part of the entire Roaring Brook Campground Association and granted a permanent proprietary lease to your campsite. You own your campsite just like any other property, until you decide to transfer or sell it.
The cooperative budget provides for campground infrastructure maintenance including supply of water, electric and septic service to all of the campsites and common buildings. We maintain all of the recreational areas, cut the grass, provide on site garbage disposal and insure you will have a carefree adventure at Roaring Brook Campground.
There is an annual maintenance fee, shared equally amongst all of the owners. The town of Stafford Springs sends a personal property tax bill for the camper, attached rooms and sheds. You are not individually taxed on the value of your campsite or share ownership. The annual budget is set and voted on by the owners of Roaring Brook Campground.
