A group of investors, including Deepak Bhatnagar, of Flemington, N.J., and Kuldeep Kumar, of New York, purchased the 48-acre RelaxNation in Lehighton, Penn., for $3.8 million, according to a press release covered in the Woodall’s Campground Magazine.
According to the release, the investors plan on improving and updating the year-round vacation and leisure destination that offers traditional campgrounds and experiential glamping facilities.
“We are adding 10 new cabins, fully renovating a house and moving a chalet on the property to a better location,” Bhatnagar said. “We also plan to clean up the property and hire a consultant/ management company to run it.”
In addition, the group plans to advertise the property more heavily. They expect the renovations and improvements to be completed by the end of the year.
The partners own other properties in Pennsylvania including the Hampton Inn, next door to RelaxNation. That’s how they saw it was for sale and believed it was a good investment, Bhatnagar said. The other investors are: Dilbag Singh, of Pennsylvania, and Namrata Sharma, of New Jersey.
RelaxNation is a half-mile off the Pennsylvania Turnpike, located by Jim Thorpe, Beltzville Dam, Blue Mountain Resort and more.
The resort offers guests amenities for all camping abilities including rustic cottages, RV sites, primitive camping and glamping sites. It also has a swimming pool, fishing and nightly entertainment. Its sky pavilion, located on the summit of the facility, is available for larger events including weddings.
The new luxury cottages will offer guests views overlooking the Pocono Mountains.
