Beaver Hollow Campground
2019 GOACC Business of the Year
Sandy Allan purchased Beaver Hollow campground in 2007. After numerous necessary infrastructure investments; such as replacing the power system and adding a new pool, Sandy has been able to rejuvenate the Campground and bring new economy to the area. He began with just two employees and now has 7 seasonal staff managed by Jean Hewitt. The staff strives to provide a family friendly camping adventure to their 135 sites.
In 2014, Sandy and staff, wanted to contribute in some way to the community. So they began the campground’s summer series of fundraisers to benefit the Jimmy Fund. Donations are raised by campers, staff, and volunteers completely within Beaver Hollow Campground. Sandy and Jean work to gather prize donations from local businesses. Campers and staff also make donations. Over Labor Day weekend the staff runs games and events such as Golf Cart races, Tee shirt sales, Bingo, and motorcycle rides. Labor Day weekend is a big earning event culminating in the Duck Dunk. The idea is taken from the popular Duck Race. However, Beaver Hollow style has the Ducks placed in the campground pool. One of the staff then rides the slide into the pool and the first duck grabbed is the winning Duck!
In 2015, Beaver Hollow Campground decided to focus even more locally on the summer series fundraiser recipients. Their donations since then have been split between the Jimmy Fund and the GOACC’s Higher Education Scholarship Fund. To date, the GOACC’s Scholarship has received just over $17,500.00 from Beaver Hollow.
People who know Sandy have said he is a fantastic man to work for, very nice guy, and he runs a very family friendly campground. He cares about his staff, and campers alike. Sandy says his priorities are safety for his campers and keeping the focus on a family oriented campground; Sandy and his team work in a collaborative way to promote a family friendly stay at Beaver Hollow Campground.
