32-2198.14. Advertising availability of campgrounds to campground members; blanket encumbrances
A. No membership campground may be advertised or promoted in any way that guarantees the unimpeded use of or access to the campground's properties unless the membership camping operator applies for and receives approval by filing information satisfactory to the department guaranteeing that the purchasers of membership camping contracts cannot be denied access to and use of campground properties pursuant to the membership camping contracts. The department may require the applicant to pay for any costs of experts hired by the department to evaluate the application, nondisturbance clause or financial condition of the applicant. No lien or encumbrance may be construed to deny access and use.
B. The applicant shall include satisfactory evidence that purchasers of campground memberships acquire an unimpeded and irrevocable right of access to and use of campground properties by means acceptable to the department, including:
1. A duly recorded nondisturbance agreement from each holder of a lien or encumbrance on a membership campground that provides minimally for:
(a) Enforcement of the agreement by individual campground members.
(b) Effectiveness of the agreement notwithstanding insolvency, bankruptcy of the membership campground operator or sale of the campground.
(c) Binding successors in interest of both the campground membership operator and each holder of a lien or encumbrance.
(d) Alternative means to continue operation of the campground if the campground operator, holder of a lien or encumbrance or purchaser who obtains title or possession of the campground ceases to act as operator.
2. A bond or irrevocable letter of credit posted by the membership camping operator in an aggregate principal amount sufficient to cover the indebtedness remaining under any lien or encumbrance.
3. Other financial assurances reasonably acceptable to the department.
