Celebration of Life



It is with our deepest sympathy that we announce the passing of our dear friend and animal care taker, Rick Scholle. Rick was originally from Cincinnati, Ohio. He was with us at Trail Lakes Campground for 30 years and he hosted the animal exhibit for 25 years. He was born May 28, 1946 and passed unexpectedly on Sunday, March 11, 2018. His love for the animals was obvious and many visitors growing fond of him after a conversation regarding the animals in his care.

We will be hosting a Celebration of Life for Rick on Sunday, April 8 at 1 p.m. It will be held near the gift shop at Trail Lakes Campground. The animal exhibit will be open for all to enjoy. Everyone is invited. Anyone with photos or stories of Rick are welcome to share.

We have been humbled by his loss and thank you all for your kind words and your support during this difficult time.
