PENTICTON - Visitors and snowbirds alike will be happy to hear of a new RV park development in Penticton.

Dan Selles says he will be opening a high end RV resort just off Highway 97, on the former Okanagan Amusements property his family operated, located just south of the city.

Selles says the park, to be known as Holiday Hills RV Resort, will have great views of Skaha Lake, in addition to being close to the new Play Winery, a golf course and the hospital.

“The name is a throwback to my dad’s campground, which was located in the 1980s and 1990s where Skaha Meadows Golf Course is today,” he says.

He anticipates the resort will have 88 sites, 50 amp electrictal service along with cable and internet.

“Our target market is for the big motor homes and RVs, including out of province snow birds, locals who want to downsize, or out of town workers looking for accommodation,” Selles says.

A clubhouse containing storage lockers, laundry facilities, full service washrooms and a fitness centre will also constructed, with a pool and social area outside.

Selles says the first phase, containing 30 sites, is expected to open in early spring, with additional sites for vacationers to use until phase two is built and sold.
