Ashley Lane RV Park in Enid, Okla., is a labor of love for owner Emma Compston, according to the Enid News & Eagle.

Compston bought the park in 2009 from a friend who planned to clean it up and reopen it.

“My friend bought the park and had a bad accident. He couldn’t do the work,” she said.

Compston said it was a major cleanup with debris and even a few old mobile homes that were vacant.

“We had large trash containers delivered from the city and filled them over and over. We smashed the old trailers, and they were carried off,” Compston said.

She put in new electrical pedestals and cleaned out all the sewer lines that connect to the main line.
