The former Englishtown Ridge Campground has new owners, a group of friends from Membertou and Eskasoni First Nations. It is now known as the Kluskap Ridge RV and Campground.
The CBC reports the six friends were sitting around a picnic table talking about how hard it was to find campsites where they could park their trailers together and joked about owning their own campground. Now it’s reality.
They bought the campground with financial help from Ulnooweg Development Group, which provides loans to Indigenous entrepreneurs. Besides 49 hookup sites and 30 tent sites they will also offer two teepees, a cabin and two vacation rentals.
