Fern Ridge Shores News
Fall and Winter 2012/13
What a beautiful time of the year here at Fern Ridge Shores and the surrounding area! . We have a few RV sites for daily week ends and full-timers are always welcome. RV sites are still available.
Our Fourth of July celebration was a great success as usual with over one hundred folks attending. The wading pools and games continue to be a big hit with the little kids. The weather was beautiful, excellent food was plentiful, and a good time for all. We are glad you were here and, if you weren't, hope to see you next year.
Fern Ridge Shores is a great place to stay when you are in town for Duck games. Eugene boasts a wonderful kid's museum, terrific restaurants, several fresh fruit & veggie stands, and several theaters, including the Actor's Cabaret where tickets for Monty Python and The Holy Grail are still on sale.
Fern Ridge Shores is located in the beautiful Willamette Valley where you can visit more than 200 wineries. In less than an hour you can be at the coast and visit a casino with a great buffet. Willamette Valley is host to at least dozen Farmer's Markets including one right here in Veneta. For future reference, between Halloween and Christmas, carnivals, festivals, and bazaars abound in the Eugene area. Our year round RV park welcomes you. There is never a day when you can't find enjoyable things to do.
We live in a bird watchers paradise. Egrets, herons, eagles, dunlin are prolific this time of year. Occasionally a red fox, pheasants or wild turkeys wander into the park. Deer are sighted daily along Jeans Road and right here in the park. Most of us enjoy the proximity to the wildlife, although gardeners bemoan the loss of their strawberries, veggies and flowers.
Those of us who have lived here for a long time remind newcomers that Fern Ridge Shores belonged to the deer, bear and cougars long before it was our park. Rarely are bear or cougars sighted but it has happened. We always ask tenants not to leave garbage uncovered or pet food outside. Important to remember when picking berries or walking through the surrounding wooded areas is to travel in pairs.
The owners and managers of Fern Ridge Shores encourage you to visit the RV park year round. Our beautiful marina is open from mid-April until late September. In addition to the RV park and Marina, the 55-space Manufactured Home Community has homes for sale and an occasional site ready for your home. Currently there is a wait list for sites in the Manufactured park.
We have a new Marina with floating docks and easy access. We also have a boat launch ramp open to the public. We have slip rentals, 120 in all, for our full time boaters or just for the weekend or on a daily basis. We have a large picnic area lake side with fire rings and clean restrooms and showers. The lake is accessable from April 15th to October 15 yearly.
We look forward in seeing you and your family this season and will will do all we can to make you stay a great experience.
