Butterfield RV Resort

Better late than never. We have been here 10 days already and busy the whole time. Work, shopping, settling in, excuses, excuses. The park is pretty empty now, but the first snowbirds will arrive 1 Nov., about 30 of them. All activities start in Nov.

Well here we are in sight 8 in the workamper row. I haven’t put up everything yet, but I’m almost there.

This is my work for the winter, keeping the pool and spa clean and warm. Some of my favorite work.

This is the first park we have been in with an observatory. Astronomy shows nightly at 7:30 PM.

Here’s your friendly storekeeper. She’s a beauty!


Here are two views of the clubhouse and event kitchen.

There is another building next door with a large room and another kitchen for dances and musical events.
We are so happy to be here at this beautiful park. There are 173 RV spaces with several park models available for monthly rental. We are located in the center of town right behind the Safeway and Ace Hardware stores. Couldn’t get much handier.
