New Owners Thriving at Oregon RV Park
Steve and Cara Stamback travel in their own RV so they know what that type of traveler is interested in when looking for a place to park.
The Stambacks found those “fundamentals” at the Tri City RV Park in Myrtle Creek, Ore., that was for sale, and so made the decision to purchase the business. The Stambacks, with a couple of partners, took ownership of the park Aug. 1 and it now has a new business name of Tri City RV. The park is located at 187 N. Old Pacific Highway, Myrtle Creek, The News-Review, Roseburg, reported.
“We took a look at it and liked everything about it,” said Steve Stamback. “It's a good basic park. It's got all the fundamentals a RVer would ever want. We like it.”
The Stambacks, who live in Sherwood, have previous experience as owners of a RV park. They are investors in the Premier RV Resort in Salem.
The Tri City park was built in 2006 and '07. In August 2010, however, the park went into foreclosure, leaving PremierWest Bank as owner and operator. The Stambacks and their partners then made the purchase from that bank.
Doreen Roles is the on-site manager of the park, handling its day-to-day operations. She has previous managerial experience and, according to Stamback, has already helped the park increase its occupancy of monthly residents from 22 in February to a present total of 44. The park has 69 full hookup RV spaces and provides guests with free high-speed Wi-Fi and cable.
“The bulk of the park's business is monthly guests and that's been going up,” Stamback said.
He added that plans are being finalized to build an RV storage facility on a lot attached to the RV park. A propane dispensing station and a 2,800 square foot outdoor pet play area for all guests to use will also be built on the lot.
