I hope to see you soon!  -  Paul Grondal - 2007 Operations Manager.

January 2007 - The votes are in and our board members for 2007 are in place.  Both Reid Kinne (regular membership) and Ron Johnson (expanded membership) were re-elected to serve on the 2007 board of directors.  The board also elected board member Dick Swier (regular membership) to serve as board Chairman.  Reid will continue to serve as Treasure and Doug Gibbs will continue to serve as board Secretary. Congratulations are in order for a job well done by this board last year and clearly the membership wanted this board back in 2007!     For more information on the 2007 Board of Directors click here.

 

January 2007 - Wind Storm:  A few trees and a whole lot of branches came down in the huge windstorm.  Check out the pictures posted by member Heidi Neil on the Member's Forum.  Overall it appears that the park did not sustain any substantial damage.

 

January 2007 - Operations Manager:  The 2007 board of directors requested that Paul Grondal return as Park Operations Manager for 2007.  The offer was appreciated and accepted.

 

January 2007 - Survey stakes appeared on the expanded side of the park in early November.  Discussions were held with the lease holder, surveyor and land developer and all parties confirmed that no development will take place during the 2007 season.  There appears to be continuing negotiations with the BIA (Bureau of Indian Affairs) that must be completed before any development can begin.  All parties will abide by the negotiated settlement completed in 2003.

2/21/2006 - Board approves extra camping days with "buy back rule" for members

During the "off camping season" (the day following Labor Day until the Friday preceding Memorial Day) members  may purchase (buy back) an additional seven day stay, following their regular 14 day stay, for $15 each night.  The buy back opportunity requires the member to move to an upper site for the entire 7 days. At the end of the 7 days a member may start a new 14 day cycle, and could move back to an available water site. The buy back feature may be utilized multiple times.  This buy back feature is predicated on space being available. No incoming member should be denied access to the campground because another member is requesting to use the buy back feature. The buy back option is only available during the time that the campground is officially open.
