Sheridan Lake Resort received this year’s Small Park Campground of the Year Award from the Camping & RV Council of Canada.
Resort owner Tammi Midgley, who has run the fishing and camping resort for four years with her husband Titus, said she was surprised when she learned they had won the annual award, presented at a a virtual conference on March 10.
“We were really excited about it,” Midgley said. “We love it because we love living here. We love the Cariboo.
The couple moved to South Cariboo because they wanted to “get out of Dodge and semi-retire,” said Midgley, noting that she spent 30 years working in credit unions while her husband was an engineer.
Since arriving in Sheridan Lake, she has been heavily involved in the community – a big part of the CCRVC award – serving on the boards of the British Columbia Lodging and Campgrounds Association (BCLCA) and the Fishing Highway 24 Association.
The resort, with 84 RV sites and 19 cabins, is open year-round, with 12 cabins available during the winter months for ice fishing and other activities. The business expands with glamping with a new cabin.
Leanne Sallenbeck, of South Point Resort at Canim Lake, won CCRVC’s Rising Star award last year.
