After 27 years with the original owner, Osprey
Point in Lakeside is
under new ownership! Chris and Stefani Barnett of Grants Pass purchased
the resort on April 28, 2017, and have been busy since improving and
updating the facility.
I spoke with Chris Barnett about his recent
acquisition. “My wife and I had been looking for a while for
to bring our family to and to work at the same time. This place came up
for sale and we realized how much it had to offer. This is a
resort in a great town – Lakeside!”
For those Shopper readers who
are unfamiliar with all that Osprey Point has to offer, Chris
explained, “We have a ‘one-stop-shop’
type of facility. There are 80
full hookup RV sites, a store, a restaurant/pub, laundry facilities, an
arcade, a rec room, and five cabins. As far as recreation, you can
fish, rent two different types of boats, we have boat moorage and a
Barnett family are now the new owners of Osprey Point RV Resort in
Osprey Point boasts a full service restaurant and
pub, with pizza
that’s legendary. “We have a full menu, but what I
hear most from
people is how good our pizza is,” said Chris.
If campers are in need
of grocery items, the store carries everything from ice cream to bait.
There’s even a business center, where scanning, faxing and
are available for use.
Sixteen people work at Osprey Point. “We
full maintenance, store, restaurant and resort crews,” said
“What makes us different than most RV resorts is that we
offer so many
different amenities. Most RV resorts are just about
that…RVs… but we
really have a wide variety of services to offer!”
The resort covers a total of 66 acres on Tenmile
with 30 acres dedicated to the camping sites and amenities. The plan is
to add another 80 full hookups in the future.
At Osprey Point customers will find daily, weekly
monthly rates. And it must be a nice place to stay, because
they’ve had customers coming back every year for 15 years.
“Some have lived here for eight years, full-time,”
Chris. “You don’t have to be a park
member to live
here, and we are a Good Sam approved facility.”
I asked Chris if he could define the typical
his resort. “That would definitely be your retired
travelers,” he replied. “They have a routine; they
different areas throughout the year. We get a lot of repeat
business. Just the other day we had a couple from New York
staying here, and they said ours was one of the nicer places
they’ve stayed at during their trip.”
Chris said “so far, so good”
when I asked
him about advertising with the South Coast Shopper.
already heard a lot of people say they saw our ad in the Shopper. And
we wanted to get the word out that this place has new owners.
It’s been around since 1995 and we’re doing
adding amenities, new lighting, security, etc., to keep it the special
place that it is.”

beautiful escape that we provide…that makes my day.

the Oregon Coast. We believe in this place.”
