This is a four season resort (deep water and sewer services). Most folks start by parking their RV on their lot and many then place a Park Model or Cottage Model on the lot and live there year-round. For us, we'll be parking the trailer on the lot, but who knows maybe we'll eventually put something more permanent on the lot too. There is a Condo Board so we do pay monthly fees. They include water and sewer, garbage and of course common property maintenance. Taxes are reasonable and the power cost is not bad either. Each site has 100 Amp power available. The financial calculation we have made is that we could maintain our lot for a year for the cost of a campground in Red Deer for three months. Now there is a capital outlay, but for us the advantages convinced us to make the investment. So even if we decide to go on a summer trip we really won't be paying more than we are now for campgrounds. The advantages of having our own place is that we can make it our own, build a shed, deck, buy a boat maybe, and have a family use summer place for many years.

So we've started the process of purchase. Contract Conditions come off tomorrow. We will be moving out to the Resort roughly May 3 and onto a vacant site until our site is ready. We hope to get possession May 15 but the developer will let us start bringing in landscaping gravel and stone earlier than that once the frost is out of the ground and road restrictions come off.
