NEW for 2023 at RidgeView Resort

The Resort is working to make their resort even more awesome with several new developments:

  • The resort is currently working on a multi-phased renovation of their Recreation Center where you'll find the indoor swimming pool, hot tub, and fitness centre.

  •  A new camp store will be opening this spring. The store will feature a collection of guest essentials, art, home/RV d├ęcor, books, and RidgeView wearables/souvenirs. Younger guests will find their favourite candy, crafts, games and activity makers to help fill their days with wonderful memories of their stay.

  • A Visitor Center is now open adjacent to the front desk. It provides guests with useful information on daily activities and events, news, weather, and local area attractions.

  • The Resort Hospitality and Events Coordinator is busy planning for many family and children’s events between July 1 and September 3 including a kids kraft korner, kids half-day camps, and pool-side activities.

  • A Courtyard fire pit will be an exciting resort addition this year. It will serve as a community gathering place in the RidgeView Courtyard, surrounded by a dozen or so red Adirondack chairs. This will be the place to hang out while your kids play basketball, play at the park, or just simply to enjoy a tall glass of red wine by the warmth of a smoke-free fire under the stars.

  • The resort is happy to announce the return of their weekly Saturday Night Market and Dance through the summer season. 

  • The resort is expanding their outdoor pool lounge area with more space for setting up a blanket or lawn chairs on the grass surrounding the pool.
