Turtle Rock Resort believes in environmental stewardship and is committed to being green. We all have a responsibility to help preserve our surroundings. Turtle Rock takes this responsibility seriously.
Turtle Rock Resort is located on a reclaimed lumber mill previously covered with junk cars, piles of hot water heaters, and old lumber mill equipment on the Hunter Creek estuary. The site was extensively cleaned and now provides a beautiful ocean getaway for many appreciative guests.
Beach Resort at Turtle Rock has recently qualified for national designation in the National RV Parks and Campground Association (ARVC)/Woodall's Directory "Plan It Green Friendly Parks" and ARVC's "Plan It Green Pledge". The recognition is based on a list of eighteen green-friendly criteria. The designation is built on reduce, reuse, recycle principles. Turtle Rock Resort achieved recognition by meeting more criteria than was required, is proud to be part of the program, and practices as many eco-friendly precepts as possible.
