What's Happening in Wine Country
 
   In January you filled out a survey telling us what things would help you enjoy the park even more.  Well, we are making great progress!
   We just completed installation of a 16 meg internet service, up from our previous 1.5 meg, to feed our free WiFi system for overnight guests.  We also increased the number of TV channels available at premium sites to 60!!  We are reorganizing our park to better accommodate groups.  For the mundane, we have installed new power assist toilets and bigger toilet paper rolls so you won't be inconvenienced.  We aren't finished yet, so come see our other improvements. 
   Farmers Market will have peaches, corn and pears. There are still some outstanding late cherries available.  The Park has been filling up so get your reservations soon.  Call before you come for the Wine & Food Fair Aug. 14th to save $5 on your ticket for this classic event.  Make your reservations now for our final pre-school Hurrah! on Labor Day, Sept. 6th.

 WOW!! July at Wine Country RV Park was fabulous. Warm sunny days and mild relaxing evenings sure made the family BBQ a special occasion.  Wine and cheese certainly was the favorite while enjoying our beautiful sunsets. Speaking of wine, August is a beautiful time of year in the vineyards. The vines are in full foliage and the grapes approaching harvest. Haven't tasted a syrah off the branch? Give us a call and we can make that happen. Harvest this year is running a little late due to the cool spring. Haven't seen a crush at harvest? Call us for the details and we can set that up. Probably around September 7th. September is another choice month for visiting Prosser and Wine Country RV Park. The aroma of freshly harvested grapes as they are delivered to our local wineries makes for a very enjoyable addition to your experience at Wine Country RV Park. Breakfast anyone? No need to worry about all the early Saturday morning fixings for the family! How about pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage, juice and coffee for $3.00!! Beginning Saturday, July 31 and every Saturday in the month of August we will be serving breakfast here in the park. Call ahead for reservations or purchase your tickets at check in. Check out our web site for more exciting things to do or see while in the area.
