Morgan RV Resorts has purchased the family-owned Indiana Beach Amusement Resort in Monticello, Ind., for an undisclosed sum. The company, with its headquarters on Queensbury Avenue, bought the family-owned Indiana Beach Amusement Resort in Monticello, Ind., for an undisclosed sum. The park includes six rollercoasters and theme areas, including Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resort at Indiana Beach, located 95 miles north of Indianapolis, Ind.
The complex opens its 2008 season on May 3. Morgan RV Resorts, which bills itself as the country’s largest private owner and operator of RV parks and resorts, owns 36 resorts in 14 states.
Co-owner Robert Moser visited the Indiana park on Tuesday to meet employees. He was travelling on Wednesday and could not be reached for comment.
"We are thrilled to be welcoming this historic Indiana family destination to the Morgan RV Resorts family, " Moser said in a news statement. "Guests of Indiana Beach will continue to take pleasure in the quality experience they have come to love over the past eight decades and enjoy an ongoing commitment to improving the destination year after year."
The park added its sixth rollercoaster, the Steel Hawg, recently. The new steel roller coaster features a 120-foot drop. Morgan RV Resorts owns Lake George Campsites on Route 9 in Queensbury, and the company has plans to rehabilitate and beautify that 36-acre site.
Moser filed plans with the Queensbury Planning Board on Friday to eliminate tent camping and add 46 new campsites for RVs. The project would allow the park to accommodate high-end RVs longer than 45-feet.
The site has roughly 300 RV and tent campsites now. The park includes a 3-acre circular compound that will also undergo renovations that include improvements to the check-in office, two bathhouses and laundry facilities, and indoor and outdoor pools.
