Travelers to Ontario, Oregon who normally choose the city’s hotels and motels for their stay will now have another option—a new RV park with 170 spots planned for the intersection of Southeast Third Avenue and Southeast Fifth Street.

According to a report, the city “has been working for several years to promote the development of an RV Park in Ontario to provide the need for the traveling recreational public to stay and shop in Ontario and to provide for a need for an RV Park for longer-term stays by citizens using recreational vehicles as their homes.” The rezoning of the land that will be used for the RV Park is scheduled for the Ontario Planning Commission on February 8.

Owner Mike Hanigan and developer Paul Hilbig will produce a site plan, with construction starting in the late spring or early summer. Hilbig stated, “Along with outdoor recreational facilities such as pickleball court, the park will have a clubhouse with a laundry room, several private bathrooms with showers, and a large open room for those staying at the park. The individual RV stalls will be wider than average to provide an inviting, open feel we feel our customers will appreciate.”

A pedestrian bridge and bike path on Southeast Fifth Avenue are planned city improvement projects that will help RV park visitors and residents reach downtown Ontario even if they are traveling without cars. Hilbig said, “We have enjoyed working with neighbors and city officials, and equally look forward to bringing a top-class RV park to the city of Ontario in the near future.”
