Big plans at RV park

A parcel of prime beach front property in Trout Creek which includes the Summerland Beach RV & Campground is being cleaned up, improved and expanded, its owners say. 

After an $8 million sale fell through in 2018, the owners decided to hold on to the 44-acre area on Landry Crescent, adding 12 new pads to the existing 115 and encouraging year-round renting residents. 

"With affordable housing, people screaming about how they need affordable housing these days, well these things are pretty affordable," said co-owner Ken Tremblett, adding that the private beach, fire pits and other amenities on the property make it a unique spot on Okanagan Lake. 

In the past, Tremblett and his business partner had bad experiences trying to develop the property, dealing with investment partners that went broke or turned out to be scammers. Discouraged, they tried to sell the property, but after that fell through as well, they decided to make the development happen alone.

"We're taking this seriously. We're going to make this park into something that people want to live in," Tremblett said. "It was let go, we had a manager there who let it go. Now we have a manager we brought in there about four months ago, he and his wife are running it, they live in the park, they're doing a spectacular job."

Abandoned junk and old trailers have been removed, leaving a clean slate for further development. The new 12 trailer pads will be operational within days, and after that, Tremblett says there are plans for more expansion. 

"We're going to create 24 single-family home lots on the beach in Trout Creek," he explained. "It'll be great, great news and on the market at a very, very reasonable price."

Summerland Beach RV Park is located at 3919 Landry Crescent.
