On Sunday, Aug. 15th, 1968, Walt & Iva Thompson announced the Grand Opening of the 'Driftwood Travel Trailer Retreat'. It featured 'Drive Thru Spaces, Laundry Facilities, a Recreation Room and All Electrical & Sanitary Hook-ups'.


The ad that ran in the local paper that day (the 'Pilot') announced the 'Grand Opening Celebration', and there was 'Free Coffee and Cookies', a 'Tour of the Grounds' and a 'Trail to the Beach'. What a day!


Also featured were 'Aloha Camp Trailers and Caravelle Campers, shown by Chetco Motors Co., Inc.'


A lot has changed since 1968 and we now have a bit more than just a 'Trail to the Beach'. See our 'Take A Tour' page for proof.


The original map (as printed in the Pilot) to the 'Driftwood Travel Trailer Retreat' can be viewed on the 'Original Map' tab. We've updated it a bit since then (see our 'Find Us' page).


Note: move your mouse cursor over the thumnails to view the images.

Tents for Troops




"Tents for Troops" is a National Organization that encourages campgrounds and RV Parks to support our troops, by donating two sites for two nights to Active Duty Military personel. This program allows us to "give back" to those men and women serving in our armed forces, for all their hard work and dedication to defending our Nation and our way of life.
In 2011, Driftwood RV Park became a proud member of the "Tents for Troops" organization. If you or a member of your family are currently on Active Duty and would like to stay at Driftwood RV Park, please contact us by phone or via our 'Stay With Us' page, for availability of sites and to allow us to repay your service in our small way.
