The resort covers a total of 66 acres on Tenmile Lake,
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 and
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,” added
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 visitor to
his resort. “That would definitely be your retired
travelers,” he replied. “They have a routine; they go to
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. “We’ve
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 painting,
adding amenities, new lighting, security, etc., to keep it the special
place that it is.”
Osprey Point is located at 1505 N. Lake Road in
Lakeside. They’re open seven days a week every day of the year.
The store is open daily from 8am to 6pm, and the restaurant and pub is
open 11am to 11pm daily. Their phone number is 541-759-2801.
“We’re a family-owned business,” Chris
continued. “Seeing customers happy, seeing them come here to get
away from their normal routine, relax and enjoy themselves in this
beautiful escape that we provide…that makes my day. We’re
planning on making Osprey Point one of the best destination resorts on
the Oregon Coast. We believe in this place.”
