Well we've made it into 2019! We hope you all come into the new year happy and healthy! We're continuing to work on the winter projects - primarily the new campsites and repairs around the property! We're excited for the new season and are sure it'll be our best yet!! The motel will open on March 14th in time for spoonbill season. The rest of the facilities will open when we can safely turn on the water without threat of a hard freeze. We will for sure be open by April 1st regardless.
All the invoices for renewals went out on January 1st by email. I sent the invoices to email addresses we had on file and mailed to anyone we don't have an email address for. If you didn't receive your renewal please contact us and I'll send you another copy. Remember if we don't hear from you by January 31st you could lose your spot.
We'll be contacting our waiting list for slips starting next week. We should be able to take care of most people. We have a very extensive waiting list for our seasonal campsites which we'll start contacting by February 1st. We've had a few people not renew and we've put in an additional 11 full hook up sites to help decrease the size of our list. It's always a challenge to find the right balance between seasonals and maintaining enough overnight sites!
We're answering phones and making reservations for the motel now. Our new reservation system should be up on the website by the end of the month if all goes well. It will be more user friendly and also integrate boat rentals and overnight slip rentals this year. We look forward to having all our old friends back and making new friends as people discover the beautiful areas on Truman Lake and here at Sterett Creek!
See you soon!!
Cathy & Ken
