   Seven Feathers RV Resort Opens In Oregon
   CANYONVILLE, Ore. -- Seven Feathers RV Resort, tucked in behind Seven Feathers Truck & Travel Center at Exit 99 off I-5 opens officially today. The Resort is the first business to be built within the area known as Creekside Development.
   Creekside Development, adjacent to the formerly dry Jordan Creek, was the name given to the installation of utilities and transportation on the several hundred acre undeveloped plat of land behind Seven Feathers Truck & Travel Center. Owned by the Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians, work on the installation of utilities at Creekside began four years ago. That work, including water treatment, wastewater treatment, communications systems, and road development was essentially completed prior to the establishment of Seven Feathers RV Resort.
   The 191-space RV Resort, located on 23 acres of land, was envisioned by John Imler of Imler Consulting and publishing Inc. of Sacramento, California. Of the 191 spaces, 104 are pull through sites. Additions, such as the 8,200 square foot recreational building with heated swimming pool and spa, were made to Imler’s original plan. Other additions include horseshoe pits, barbeque pavilions, a play pavilion for children, common areas for bicycling, and walking trails.
   Amenities offered at Seven Feathers RV Resort include free morning paper delivery on week-ends, free wireless internet connection, free expanded channel cable TV, message and mail service, concierge service, valet service to guide and/or park your vehicle. The registration office houses a media center as well as a gift shop.
   Access the restaurants at Seven Feathers Hotel & Casino Resort and Seven Feathers Truck & Travel is facilitated by the shuttle that stops at the RV Resort each half hour. Seven Feathers RV Resort also has an indoor gathering area with kitchen and large screen TV that can be rented by RV guests for larger groups.
   According to Mark Hall, who with his wife, Jennifer, manage Seven Feathers RV Resort, “Our goal for the Seven Feathers RV Resort is to make it the premier resort of choice for RV’s across the U.S. by providing the best customer service in the industry.”
   Special introductory rates for the RV Resort range from $31 to $39 per night. Good Sam, AAA, KOA, AARP and other memberships provide an additional 10 percent discount. Seven Feathers RV Resort can be contacted at (877) 839-3599.

    DULUTH, Minn. -- An agreement being worked out between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the State of Minnesota may transfer management of five federal recreation areas to the state.
   Budget cuts forced the federal government to remove the $1.5 million annual subsidy to operate the parks. Community opposition led to the idea of a state-federal partnership. If the plan is approved, state and federal workers would co-manage the parks in 2007 with the goal of transferring management to the state by 2008. To read the complete story, click here.
