Welcome to Collins Bay,

Thank you for visiting the Collins Bay portion of our web site. Hopefully you got our web address from one of the RV shows or better yet from one of our satisfied campers.

To give you a little background on Collins Bay let me start from November 2001. That is when I purchased the property for Collins Bay from the Collins family. Since the property was on one of three bays that make up Barton Lake and the Lake was named after Barton Collins I thought Collins Bay was a pretty obvious choice. After obtaining the necessary county approval I started clearing brush, moving existing buildings, and began the engineering required. Three years later you now see the mostly completed project. We still have some work to do such as trees to plant, basketball and horse shoe courts to build but for the most part we have things pretty well finished.

When building Collins Bay I wanted to provide some of the best RV lots available affording the best views of the lake as I could while still preserving the natural beauty of the land. I hired a naturalist to help me accomplish this goal. His name is Nate Simmons. Nate was very helpful in the permitting process as well as managing the extensive wetland that we are so fortunate to overlook. Together we took great pains to make sure that we provided sites with great views and access to the lake all the while keeping the impact on the lake and the wetlands to a minimum. I think we accomplished that very well.

My philosophy here at Collins Bay is simple. I am not just renting you an RV lot. I am providing you with your own lake place. Whether you have a park model or motor home it is your lake place to come fish, boat, swim or just sit on your patio and enjoy the view. This philosophy is why every lot at Collins Bay is a full hook up site with a 10 x 20 patio slab and designated pier space. Sewer, water and garbage are included with your rent. Most importantly your pier space is included in your rent and I maintain the piers!

If you are interested in having your own place at the lake to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life please feel to contact us and come out and pick out your lot while selection is good. Hope to see you soon.
