Meet Your Hosts

Joel & Lydia Fodor

Our goal: to achieve our motto "Where Memories Are Made"

Joel & Lydia are the first to say "It is all about Ohana" (family). They traded in their high paced life in the Vacation Home Servicing business for a little blue sky. Time with family is the number one priority, whether it is with yours or their own. Making you feel at home is what they do and this campground does it best.

The owners and staff encourage everyone to participate in the many events that can include the entire family and helps bring groups together, no matter how big or small. You can find Joel & Lydia doing morning stretches with Wonder Woman, listening to music around the bon fire and going on spooky night hikes.

Lydia comes from a background in hotel/corporate housing management and most recently owned/managed a highly sought after vacation home servicing company in the Sonoma Valley. She takes pride in knowing that each person will remember the magic and the smiles that come from camping here.

Joel is as they say "A jack of all trades", most recently managing a handyman service that has put all his skills to the test. This, coupled with his experience in guest services and landscaping, makes him key in helping keep the grounds looking lovely and the guests feeling happy. An avid outdoorsman, he always has many tales to tell.

With the love of nature & families and the experience in resort businesses, this business could not be a better match for both of them.

Come meet Joel & Lydia as they start their new adventure together.

Oh My, There's Nothing Here!
