The previous owners were Don and Karen. In the 80s, RV sites were added as well as the cabin. In the spring of 2019, Cindy and her husband remodeled the RV park in order to accommodate bigger RVs. When Cindy and her husband bought the property, they were looking for a new project. They were both tired of their jobs and were ready for an exciting change and felt the campground was the perfect fit for them. Once they were empty nesters, they sold their house in Washington and moved to Idaho to run their campground. They were on a camping trip of their own when they decided this would be the path for them. They spend a lot of time and energy, ensuring that their guests feel welcome and are cared for.
