MA: After 44 years, campground owner ready to move on

WESTPORT, Mass. — Forty-four years ago, Martin Costa began realizing a family dream.

It was then that with his late father George and his brother Allan, Costa took 33 acres on Old County Road and turned it into Westport Camping Grounds.

Costa, co-owner and manager of the grounds, says he has spent most of his life teaching others about the great outdoors and making room for people to enjoy it at his camp site. Now, Costa and the rest of his family are going to be calling it quits within the next four years, saying farewell to the sprawling land with 50 recreational vehicle sites and 50 tent sites. Costa, 61, says he plans on selling the campgrounds before he turns 65.
