The city of Thunder Bay, Ontario, hopes more campers will hook up with Chippewa Park after changes to its RV park.

The park’s 26 RV campsites now have 50 amp electrical service, water and new fire pits. The city’s south-side parks supervisor Gordon John said there’s also a new dump site for travellers. The upgrades started seven years ago and were complete this spring.

“We’ve spent a lot of time getting this up and running and now we’re in the full swing of things,” John said.

Because newer motorhomes and fifth wheels require more power for everything from microwaves to air conditioning, the former 15 amp electrical service at Chippewa Park needed to be replaced.

That allows the park to stay competitive with other RV sites across the province, John said.

“It needed to be done just for the safety and nobody wants to come where they can’t have an air conditioner or watch TV,” John said.

The new dump site is also a big draw, he added.

Campers staying in parks and campsites around Norfork and Bull Shoals lakes will see marked improvements during the coming vacation season, thanks to a rare distribution of $1.4 million in U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Special Items Funding, according to Jon Hiser, lakes manager for the Mountain Home Corps Project Field Office.

The biggest project now under way at the Corps parks that open April 1 is the 64-camp-site Cranfield Recreation Area. Bulldozer and backhoe operators were carving out new roadbeds Wednesday to provide access to new camping areas for a variety of camper preferences. The new campsites will serve campers from those who want a primitive camping experience to those needing large pads for the largest recreational vehicles with 50-amp electrical service.
