After twenty-three years of living in Alaska, my husband Ben and I packed our dogs, Zoe and Kaylee, and our cat, Maddie, in our motorhome and took off with the vague idea of moving somewhere in Oregon. As luck would have it, our house didn't sell as planned, and we were "forced" to continue travelling long after we'd planned. As we were thoroughly investigating Highway 101 and the Oregon Coast, we stumbled upon the Chinook RV Park.
We enjoyed our brief stay immensely, and moved on down the coast. When we finished the Oregon coast, and our house still hadn't sold, we debated our options and decided to go back to the place we'd all been the happiest - Chinook. When our house finally did sell, we hated the idea of leaving and asked if we could stay another month. That's when the owners told us they wanted to retire and move closer to grandkids.
And that's how we found ourselves the very proud and excited owners of the Chinook RV Park. As we head into our fourth season, we feel we've found our niche in the local market. You might say we've gone to the dogs! We have no control over the fish run and the river. We can, however, offer an outstanding experience for travelers and their pets. So we're starting off this year with a name change - to Rovers RV Park. Hopefully it will make things less confusing with the already existing "Chinooks" in the area, and further set us apart as a truly unique and special place to visit. We look forward to sharing our little corner with you.
