History:

Birch Bay Resort started in 1950 under the name of Birch Bay Trailer Park & Sales on 35 acres of former farm land owned by Earl Vogt.  The Red Barn and chicken sheds are still at the Resort, but today we have over 125 mobile homes, park models and trailers with people vacationing here on a year around basis. 

Here are some of the historical pictures of this property:


Customers use to register by driving their motorhomes or trailers through the middle of what was once the the barn on the property.  We are no longer using this "drive-through" registration, and currently use this space as our office, club-house, and "Earl's Angus Room" a community room used by our residents.

 

Although there is no date on this picture the trucks indicate this was taken sometime in the 1930's .

 

Now you see why we name our resident/community dining area in The Red Barn, "Earl's Angus Room." 

 

Overnight camping started in the early 1950's. 

 

Initially, residents had their units on the cliff overlooking Birch Bay.  As the years progressed, the rest of the farm was filled in by other manufactured homes and park models. 

 

Now, in the 21st Century, we continue to carry on the over half-century history started by Mr. and Mrs. Vogt in 1950 by providing quality services to the guests and residents coming to Birch Bay R.V. Resort on a year around basis.
