Every serious RVer knows that not all RV parks are created equal.  From the resort design and layout to the list of available amenities, some RV resorts are just better.  Award-winning RV resort designer Bud Surles knew that from firsthand experience. He spent a good part of his life working to create RV parks that exceeded even the highest expectations.  Northern Quest RV Resort was one of the last RV resorts designed exclusively by Surles, before he lost a valiant battle with cancer last year at the age of 72.

“I walk the land until it begins to speak to me,” said Surles in one memorable interview.  More than 30 years of experience designing award-winning parks and resorts. He was often recognized as one of the RV world’s most prolific architects.

Surles served as the Director of Arkansas State Parks, Assistant Superintendent of Yellowstone National Park, Chief of Concessions Management and Associate Director of the Rocky Mountain Region for the National Park Service.

Surles developed resorts and parks world wide and in 22 states. His goal was to “create a masterpiece of every park and resort – in the mountains, in the heartland, near the ocean, and around the world.”

The Kalispel Tribe of Indians was blessed to be one of his last partners.  Together they created a vision for a high-end resort with close access to world-class amenities.
