Murdocks take over campground and RV park

February 7, 2022

On November 1, the owners of the Bonners Ferry Log Inn sold five luxury log cabins, a log cabin-style bathhouse building and 21 RV sites situated on 3.7 acres to Bonners Ferry residents Munro and Rachel Murdock. The Murdocks have since rebranded the business as North Haven Campground and are working on implementing various property improvements and amenity upgrades.

The business is located just off the west side of Highway 95 on Tobe Way north of Bonners Ferry, and across the highway from the new Sturgeon Station development currently under construction.

The owners of the Log Inn continue to operate their accommodations business across the street from North Haven Campground.

In 2021, after spending many years in Hawaii operating a successful real estate brokerage, Love Hawaii Realty, and vacation rental management business, Love Hawaii Villas, the Murdocks decided to relocate their family back to "the mainland," and chose Bonners Ferry as their new home. Once settled in, they started to explore business and investment opportunities. It was important to them to invest close to home and to focus on doing something that would contribute to the local economy and create job opportunities for Boundary County residents.

After meeting the owners of the Log Inn and learning of their interest in selling the luxury log cabins and RV sites side of their business, the Murdocks decided to pursue the opportunity further and ultimately completed the business acquisition.

The owners of the Log Inn shared a post about the business transition on their Facebook page on October 30. They informed future guests that their reservations would be honored and also said, "Munro and Rachel have amazing plans to further improve the property and take it to levels we could have only imagined ... We wish them nothing but the highest level of success on this future endeavor!"

The Murdocks have big plans for the future and have been adding various amenities and services for the guests staying at North Haven Campground.

"We have many exciting enhancements in the works for North Haven and will be adding two Conestoga glamping wagons with private bathrooms by the summer of 2023," Munro said. "We have opened 'The Outpost' camp store and office in the front of the bathhouse log building and have added washers and dryers to the laundry room for guest convenience. Playground equipment will be installed this year and our authentic Hawaiian shave ice business will also be operating on site this summer. In addition, we have future plans to add more full hook-up RV sites and other glamping options."

North Haven Campground is a quiet and family-friendly destination nestled in a beautiful wooded setting just 2.5 miles north of Bonners Ferry. Guest accommodation options include five luxury log cabins, both one and two bedroom, 21 RV sites, two Conestoga glamping wagons with private bathrooms coming this summer 2023, a large log cabin style bath house with sparkling clean private restrooms, showers and modern laundry facilities. There is also an on-site camp store and a fun 3/4 mile nature walking trail loop.

North Haven has pet-friendly cabins, high-speed fiber optic wireless Internet and is open year-round. Visitors can book online at NorthHavenCampground.com or call (208) 603-9212 to make a reservation by phone.
