Wilson campground seeks aid for expansion plan

A campground in Wilson plans a $2.2 million expansion and on Wednesday asked the Niagara County Industrial Development Agency for incentives to help pay for it.

Daisy Barn Campground, located on the shore of Lake Ontario about two miles west of the Village of Wilson, plans to increase the number of campsites from 40 to 85, while adding a swimming pool and a bathhouse on its 36-acre property.

"Wilson is really a hot place to be, five months out of the year," said Steven Clark, vice president of family-owned Clark Property Management, a major owner of commercial property in Wilson.

"Everything you guys do is first-class," NCIDA member Kevin McCabe said.

Daisy Barn applied for a 10-year property tax abatement and an exemption from paying sales tax on its building materials and equipment for the expansion. The incentives would save Daisy Barn $248,000 over 10 years, the NCIDA staff estimated.

The application for the business said it would add three part-time jobs, doubling its workforce.

A vote is expected at the agency's June 12 meeting.
