After a workplace injury required Clinton Lizee to reconsider his career, he and his wife Victoria purchased 160 acres of pristine nature near Wandering River to begin an RV park/campsite.
Since purchasing the land in 2020, the Lizee’s have developed 22 sites for the RV enthusiasts, complete with water, electricity and a sewage dump station. Each site is rented on an annual basis for $3000 if the site has both electrical and water, and $2300 for just water.
Like many RV-associated businesses during the past year and the pandemic, Back to Nature has been busy. Currently, 18 of the 22 sites have been rented by RV campers mostly from the Fort McMurray area.
Passion for the Outdoors Leads to Successful Business Idea
Clinton is quick to point out that the Back to Nature RV Park has distinguished itself from others in the region with a dedication to customer service and security facilitated by the fact that he lives at the park. “I’ve worked outdoors my whole life, and being able to do what I do now is as much of a hobby and passion for me as it is a business”.
Customer Service and a Moose By Any Other Name…
Campers can take a bridge across a creek from 40 acres of the groomed campground to 120 acres of wilderness trails and wildlife. Many campers fish in the creek, while others are content just to enjoy the beauty of nature, quiet, and solitude. And there is always the occasional sighting of Wally the resident moose who seems to have developed an affection for the RV camp as well.
Finding the RV Camp for a tour or stay is as easy as phoning Clinton at 780-531-0512. He’ll guide you through a few simple directions from the Wandering River Store, or even meet you at the store and personally escort you to the site.
