Overview

About the property

Take some time to slow down to enjoy the peaceful tranquility of nature, create family memories, while keeping a few of the amenities of home. Raymond Shores RV Resort is a year round get away located on the east side of Gull Lake, Central Alberta. The resort is the ideal place for family, friends, and relaxation, all in the safety of a gated community.

Central Alberta’s largest and cleanest lake, Gull Lake is known for crystal waters and quiet shores with warm summer temperatures. The region around Gull Lake was explored and mapped by David Thompson in 1814. Local Cree Indians called it Gull Lake due to large populations of nesting Gulls.

RV & Lot

Relax in the trailer, or enjoy the outdoors. The 2012, 37' trailer with 3 slide-outs is more than comfortable and has the amenities of home. Owner's suite located at the front and bunk room in the rear, each come with their own bathrooms, ensuring everyone has the space they need. Bunk room has three single spots and the love seat folds out into a double bed. Main area contains the kitchen, flat-screen tv, free-standing table & chairs and a love seat that folds out into a double bed if needed. Outdoor kitchen features a double burner, fridge and another tv!

The large well-treed 70' wide lot has ample room for parking at the front and includes a secluded firepit area at the back of the 170' lot.

Indoor Pool

A spacious indoor pool is available rain or shine. Both family and adult-only times are scheduled. A hot tub provides the perfect place to melt away the stress of a busy lifestyle. It is located in the Club House

Club House

A large Club House is the centre for the Raymond Shores community, featuring a large meeting space and kitchen, sizeable veranda overlooking a manicured lawn, laundry facilities, WiFi access and Summer craft program.

Play Area

A large grassy area backs onto the beach. The lawn is large enough for games of Frisbee, touch football or other team games. The open area and gentle breeze off the lake is perfect for flying kites. Regulation Horse Shoe pits invite friendly competition. The state-of-the art playground includes swings and slides to entertain children for hours.

A fireplace surrounded by natural stones for seating offers yet another resort experience with an amazing lake view. There are full-plumbing bathrooms and a foot shower for washing off beach sand.

The Beach

The private beach has a large sandy area providing ample space for kids to build sand castles and play with beach toys. Or, setup a lawn chair to catch a few rays by the lake while becoming absorbed a riveting novel. A swimming area is cordoned off to provide a safe place for hours of water fun.

Fishing

Gull Lake is a great place for fishing from a boat or off the dock. Fishing is a great way to spend a lazy summer day. Northern pike, walleye, and whitefish are in the lake.

Water Sports

Public boat access is located right next to the resort, so you can bring your watercraft and take full advantage of being right on the water.

Fresh Produce

The Bentley Farmer’s market is just one of a number of weekend markets where fresh produce and home baking can be purchased.   

Natural Habitat

Gull Lake is the natural habitat for a variety of migrating and nesting waterfowl. Many animals also make the area their home. The lake is surrounded by Aspen Parkland and Boreal mix-wood forests and eco-regions. Trees include trembling aspen, white spruce, poplar balsam and willow. Rolling grasslands also sweep through the area.

We greatly enjoyed our time .

  • 5 of 5

We felt truly blessed to be able to stay at Jacinda’s RV. It was very clean and looked like new. Everything was provided. Our favorite part was spending time at the beautiful fire pit in the woods. We thank the Lord for the relaxing time we had and the nice weather was a blessing.

Amazing end of season stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay! Secluded a bit from the other campers, and it felt like you were in the mountains. I have 3 children under 7 who were sad we had to leave when we did!

Everything was provided, except for the food and clothing. And it wasn't junk that they used. Linens, dishes, bedding were top notch and I had no problems sleeping on them or using them (I'm fussy).

We initially thought the indoor pool was closed, but had 2 days where we could use it. Clean, bright and my daughter loved it. Showers were hot and lots of space to play in the water.

The private beach is one of the best. I've been to a couple on gull lake, but this one was probably the best I've seen. It was cleaned daily and there were little or no rocks to stub little toes. And the family of otters made the trip very special for my 7 year old daughter.

The camper is big and very nice. It allowed the adults some space and the kids had their area (which they LOVED!). The wood was abundant and we had great fires.

The owner was easy to contact for any questions, and very friendly when we did the walk through. She covered everything on the camper and we had little or no issues. When I did, she answered promptly and gave me all I needed to be successful.

We had a small challenge with propane, but the resolution was GREATLY appreciated and it was one of a kind customer service! I worked for a large courier company, and know the importance of providing outstanding customer service. It was definitely surpassed here!

Thank you to the owner for providing a great memory for our family, and we will definitely be looking at renting it next year.

Great for families

  • 5 of 5

This RV has everything you need, plenty of room and great location. Our family was able to only book 3 nights but definitively we are coming back. Like all the other comments you only need to bring your food, clothing and humor.
