RV Inn Style Resorts holds ribbon-cutting to celebrate new location in Woodland


Woodland will soon be home to a new RV Inn Style Resort after a ribbon-cutting event was held on May 25 to celebrate the opening of the business.

Co-owners Mike and Denise Werner were accompanied by company CEO Matt Gagliasso and marketing director Nick Fleck, and even the company’s sasquatch mascot at the event. Everyone cheered as the orange ribbon was cut with giant scissors.

“I feel really good about it,” Mike said. “Woodland’s been a really good city. In fact, all the little cities where we’re putting these RV resorts in are loving what we’re doing. Estacada, Woodland, Kalama, and all the cities we’re coming into are loving our product and what we’re doing.”

He said the resorts cater to kids. They feature go-carts, mini golf, boat rentals, and fishing.

“Whatever kind of activity you want to do in the (Pacific) Northwest, we got you covered,” he said.

By the end of the year, Mike expects 22 additional resorts will be started. Mike said the couple has been working with the city of Woodland for a couple years to secure the site they selected.

“It just came to fruition. We got the permits, and it’s shovel-ready now,” he said. “Our Estacada location is shovel-ready, so we got all our permits for that. And then Ridgefield RV resort will be breaking ground the second week of July.”

RV Inn Style Resorts also sponsors the amphitheater in Ridgefield and RV Inn Style Convention Center that he said holds 2,150 people. The business will also be one of the main sponsors of the Clark County Fair this year.

“That’s what we’re all about is the community. Bringing fun to people’s lives is what we want to do,” Mike said.

Mike was born in Portland but grew up in Vancouver and became a truck driver. His father was also a truck driver and his mother was a real estate broker, “so I became a truck driver and real estate investor,” which is what helped him become co-owner of RV Inn Style Resorts.

“Our trucking company was hauling dangerous chemicals all over I-5 and all through Washington and Oregon, and we sold that in 2009. All along, I built the trucking company to buy real estate. Now we’re on a rocket ship going up,” he explained.

The new RV resort will be located at 1860 and 1876 Belmont Loop in Woodland.

Construction is set to start in the coming weeks.
