Most of the RV lots sold this past summer. There are a handful of lots with Rvs on them but they have been for sale for some time. The times of cheap buys are ending. Keep watching as the usual trend is spring when things start hitting the market again. Never seems to be a whole lot going on in the winter.

Also keep in mind that if a lot/RV has a roof over (highly recommended) that is worth another $5-6k (best estimate) and empty lots range $4-6k, a camper on the lot varies in value. Good luck in your search. CRR is a beautiful community and the campground is on the comeback!

The good thing about the campground you can live there year round for $5k or less per year. Heat by burning wood.

Alot of people these days live the "RV Lifestyle" or downsized lifestyle in 'Tiny Houses'. It's good to hear that the campground is on the right path to revitalization.

CRR has found its niche as a place where poor people from the cities can live in their cars.

The sky is blue.....now you creeps can come up with reasons why it's not, or how CRR somehow made it not. How sad. It will at least give you something new and interesting to harp on for a while because the same old stupid comments are stale.

People 'camp' as they don't have homes. What is wrong with that?

I don't consider the small minded people on this board friends or neighbors. I hope I never meet you in person. That would be a sad day. You get what you grow.

If you were civilized, you would have just apologized for calling people names.
Instead, you make your situation worse.
With every post, you make CRR even less desirable.

Need to set up a Wine tasting, poker tournament, and bow hunting deer hunting invitational this year at CRR. Pave dirt roads and put up street lights. Clear cut a huge tract of land and put in a mall with a Starbucks.

Since your desire is a subject that’s not stale, your wish is granted. The latest scam from CRRA involves attempted bid rigging for two separate services. The first bid is for trash pickup and the second bid is for grass cutting.

A bid for trash pickup on CRRA property went out. Katrina is attempting to ignore the lowest bidder, ignore the second lowest bidder and give the bid to the highest bidder but here’s the catch. The highest bidder and Katrina’s favorite is a company owned by two current CRRA employees from the roads and grounds department. This action is typical of the corruption and horrible management that CRRA has become famous for. Furthermore, roads and grounds already have a number of trucks. Picking up trash should be part of their job.

Bids for grass cutting have also been received. Rather than going with the lowest bid, Katrina is pushing for a bid put in by…..are you ready for this?…..the roads and grounds department. Just like the trash pickup scam, the roads and grounds already has enough equipment to do this job in house but now we must pay extra for the R&G dept. to actually do their job.

Both of these bid processes reek of corruption and are amongst the most blatant in recent CRRA history. If CRRA had anything even close to honest, competent and business minded individuals at the helm this type of nonsense would never dare surface. But here in CRRA anything goes is still SOP. If the new leadership, now in office for six months, does not stop this they are truly as gutless and corrupt as those surrounding them.

These sorts of corrupt actions are a large part of why CRRA has such a bad reputation. Bids should go to the lowest bidder and the roads and grounds manager should be fired. Katrina has once again shown she cannot be trusted and should not be considered for the permanent GM job. CRRA can expect more negativity and possibly some negative press as a result.

See, you got your wish…..a new subject! If you're not yet satisfied we could also talk about the CRRA attorney’s unethical game playing with a current court case, the behind the scenes involvement of the former GM on several fronts, which BOD members are involved, which owners are involved or the former GM’s pipe dream of becoming the next GM of Big Canoe or anything else that strikes your fancy. Take your pick. Maybe you should have stayed with gambling, that was just the appetizer.

No wonder why dues keep going and why the roads are in such sh*tty condition. Too many crooks. Home buyers look somewhere else or you will be sorry.

Nothing is ever going to change unless you fire this person reviewing the bids that was hand picked and under the former GM's tutlage. AND fire the attorney who was also hired by the former GM. you know where their allegiance is. We need to clean house once and for all. Ya took the biggest step, now follow through with the rest and let's start fresh. I think you will be amazed at the savings that occur.

So typical of CRR. I hope the companies that got screwed out of low bids go to lawyers.

That's just normal everyday corruption for Coosawattee and has been going on for years. The gambling and drinking scandals were more entertaining.

Sealed bids opened in presence of Budget committee. Lowest bidders to receive contracts upon verification of insurance. CRRA employee owned business and employee proposal not lowest bids. From whom have you received the incorrect information as stated above?

BS...Katrina was trying to quash the lowest bidder on both bids in favor of the R&G employees and the R&G department bid on grass cutting. By posting the info in advance of actual contract awarding, perhaps another CRRA scam was headed off. The info posted is accurate, you are a liar and where I heard it from is not your concern but I'll tell you this,,,,,it's not a board member. The POA office has more leaks than the Titanic.

Save you lies for the lawyer that will be calling Monday.

You might want to check the flock of songbirds that perch at board meetings too.
