THE HOLIDAY SHORES RESORT has been sold by its longtime owners, the Atkinson family, to David Reid, a third-generation RV and mobile home park owner and operator. The Atkinsons initially opened Holiday Shores in 1985, with 115 sites. The park, which is located on Goodall Road near Durand, has since expanded to include more than 600 full-hookup sites, a nine-hole golf course and the 300-person occupancy Holiday House. The park also maintains its own water and wastewater infrastructure.
The new buyer currently owns RV and mobile home parks in Michigan, Ohio and several neighboring states, and he reports that he intends to continue the tradition established at Holiday Shores over the past three-plus decades. The expansive property, which occupies between 250 and 300 acres of land in Vernon and Venice townships, was officially sold on Wednesday, Feb. 7.
