We hear a lot about campgrounds shrinking or being sold for land development, but this is good news out of B.C.’s Okanagan.

According the Kelowna-based Cast-A-Net website, “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 told the news outlet. 

The current owners have, “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," co-owner Ken Tremblett told Cast-A-Net. 

He added, “The private beach, fire pits and other amenities on the property make it a unique spot on Okanagan Lake."

Tremblett also indicated that 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 in Summerland, B.C.
