BBB Issues Consumer Alert About “Non-Existent” Upscale Campground

The Better Business Bureau is warning people about a non-existent high-end campground in Northern Michigan.

The BBB issued a consumer alert about Bella Solviva, in East Jordan.

According to the BBB, the “glamping” resort campground has been accepting reservations for more than two years, but doesn’t have a working campground and hasn’t even started initial construction.

The campground, which is supposed to provide campers with an upscale camping experience, originally planned to use a crowdfunding website to raise $100,000 for its proposed 107-acre camping facility; however, it only managed to raise $2,951.

Since then, the BBB says the owners have continued to solicit online donations for the campground without providing any proof of progress.

Bella Solviva’s website offers "annual memberships," "reservations," a "rewards program" and gift certificates that range in price from $100 to $5,000 to help fund the campground.

According to the BBB, the business is no longer responding to consumers and does not refund investments or deposits.

The BBB is still investigating this business. If you have invested money or had any other issues with Bella Solviva, contact the BBB office or file a formal complaint online
