Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge is making headlines again, and this time not just for its work taking care of abandoned lions, tigers, and bears. Last week two journalists from the Mountain Home newspaper the Baxter Bulletin paid a visit to Turpentine Creek. Their mission?
“Unique lodging in the region,” said staff reporter Josh Dooley. He and staff photographer Kevin Pieper spent an afternoon touring the refuge, but their focus was our overnight accommodations.
“The article and photo spread will be for the June/July issue of Living Well, a magazine we do at the Baxter Bulletin,” Dooley said. “We distribute it in doctor’s offices and other places where the public will get a chance to see what’s available in the area.”
In addition to the five Safari Lodges and the treehouse, TCWR offers two family-oriented bed and breakfast suites, as well as RV parking and camping spots.
“Our lodging just keeps growing and growing,” said Lodging Coordinator Lori Hartle. “And I’m sure this good coverage will get us some calls as well.”
