The Circle Creek RV Resort along U.S. Highway 101 has been sold for $2.1 million. The new ownership hopes to double the park’s size by next summer.

The RV park sits on an 11-acre peninsula bounded to the south, west and north by the Necanicum River and Highway 101 to the east. It has been owned since 2001 by Sharon Roper, 73, who is retiring to Sisters.

“I lived in Phoenix where I owned a company that made fences for horses,” she told The Daily Astorian in a 2011 business feature. “After I visited this area in the 1980s I decided that if I ever had the opportunity to live here, I would take it.”

In a news release about the sale, Roper said one of the highlights about running Circle Creek was getting to work with her daughter, Tina, and son, Michael, who helped manage the park, and meeting enthusiastic visitors to the coast.

Roper sold the property to JO OR Properties and Circle Creek Partners, registered to Loren Landau, a principal broker with Commonwealth Real Estate Services. The company manages manufactured and mobile home communities throughout the Pacific Northwest, including Four Winds Mobile Estates and Neawanna Mobile Home Park in Seaside. Commonwealth last year acquired Alder Creek Village, a 42-space, 55-and-older manufactured home community in Warrenton, for $4.5 million.

The interest in Circle Creek stems from his growing up in southwest Washington and visiting the Lower Columbia River region as a child, Landau said.

“I believe in the economics of the North Coast,” he said, adding that RV parks have also become more attractive as state tenant laws become more unfavorable for landlords.

The 44 spots at Circle Creek RV Park occupy the northern half of the property, with a field to the south. Circle Creek Partners plans to invest in aesthetics and double the park’s size in that southern field, hopefully starting construction in the fall after the busy season is over, Landau said. The hope is to have the additional spaces available by next summer.
