Rosedale, BC (CANADA) May 7, 2007 – Kevin Demers, founder of Canadian owned Holiday Trails Resorts, the largest RV resort membership system in Canada recently announced that Holiday Trails Resorts will be managing Cumberland’s Lake Park Campground. He stated, “This opportunity to manage such a beautiful park on Vancouver Island is one that fits with the direction and expansion of Holiday Trails Resorts. We are pleased to announce the continued growth of our RV resort membership system.”

Surrounded by a lush, second-growth forest that is filled with all kinds of flora and fauna, the Cumberland Lake Park Campground sits on the beautiful glacier-fed Comox Lake. Campers are able to enjoy safe, sandy spots for swimming, a boat launch, canoeing, kayaking and trout fishing. A short distance away, the Village of Cumberland is inviting with its local artist community, great pubs and eclectic shopping. It is a great jumping off point for hiking and camping excursions in Strathcona Provincial Park and the Beaufort Mountain Range. Cumberland Lake Park Campground is a short 20-minute drive from Mount Washington’s Alpine Resort, the largest skiing and snowboarding facility on Vancouver Island.

Cumberland Lake Park Campground is the perfect destination on an RV road trip for RV’ers who are heading north to escape the heat of summer. Here they will find a family-friendly camp perfect for relaxing, swimming, biking, hiking and discovering Strathcona Provincial Park.

The Holiday Trails Resorts’ three-year management plan includes operating, maintaining, marketing and investing in this campground. Contingent on appropriate permits, Holiday Trails Resorts will agree to upgrade the facilities, to create a day use area, improve the launch area and expand the number of full service camping sites. They will also create an environmentally sustainable waterfront recreational area. With over 25 years of campground management experience Holiday Trails Resorts brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise in campground service.

The Village of Cumberland and Holiday Trails Resorts are pleased to work together to offer RV’ers and campers the opportunity to “live the dream” on beautiful Vancouver Island, BC. With many campgrounds in BC closing for condo and other development, it is nice to see some additions in the Canadian rv resort membership system.

About The Village of Cumberland, BC
The Village of Cumberland (population: 2,618) is located in Comox Valley, just south of Courtenay on Vancouver Island, BC. It was founded in 1888 by coal baron, Robert Dunsmuir, whose former lavish home in Victoria, BC on is now a popular tourist attraction. In its early days, Cumberland was a cultural melting pot of Chinese, Japanese and European immigrants. Amidst the reminders of the town’s mining past lie today’s treasures – quaint pubs, bread and breakfasts, local museums and the valley’s largest indoor climbing wall.
