Clearwater Crossing RV Park was just in the development stage when Marge Main came to Orofino, Idaho, in 2006 to be its manager, the Clearwater Tribune reported. After 10 years at the park, she will retire April 1.
Main said she is grateful for Brett and Tammy Pippenger and Paul and Lee Pippenger, as well as the community, for all their help and support during those years.
She had just retired after working 20 years as a nurse in Arizona when she came to work with Brett Pippenger to build the new park. Main said there was only one campsite with a pedestal, and they stayed in it while the rest of the park was built.
The office was not finished and the plants were not yet planted; in fact, the roadway was still not paved.
Over time, Clearwater Crossing has become a successful business. “I’ll miss everybody, but I am excited about the new adventures to come,” Main said. It was a hard decision to retire, but she felt it was time.
She plans to move her fifth-wheel trailer to Clarkston, Wash., for the summers and spend winters in Arizona. That will give her the opportunity to get involved with some activities that are not available in Orofino.
