In August of 2016 Mid Oregon Credit Union members Howard and Gari Lynn Tocher purchased Foster Lake RV Resort on Foster Lake near Sweet Home, Oregon. Foster Lake is a reservoir created by the Foster Dam on the South Santiam River off of highway 20, about 93 miles west of Bend. Foster Lake offers visitors a variety of recreation opportunities such as swimming, boating, fishing, camping, hiking and picnicking. See the website for Travel Oregon.
The Tochers have been members of Mid Oregon since 2012. Long-time Crook County residents, they worked in Construction and Real Estate for many years before deciding their dream was to own and run the popular Linn County resort.
About the RV Park
The resort features Full Hook Up RV sites which are equipped with either a 30 or 50amp service. Their partial hook up sites provide power and water but no direct sewer outlet. In addition they have a few cabins, a club house with a new fitness room, a kids play area, a convenience store, business center and onsite pool in the summer. A 2017 “RV Parks Review” provides a good picture of the park’s transition to a great place to stay:
“I came to this park in June of 2016. After six weeks I was ready to find a new location. The former owners were terrible. I stuck around to see what the new owners had to bring to the table. I am so pleased with my decision to stay. The new owners brought the internet service up to date. The facility is very clean and well kept. Nice to see people who care about their park, and working every day to make it even better. I have decided to stay here where I feel safe and I don’t worry about my surroundings. Great job. Looking forward in 2017 with a great location.”
