Family Paradise Seasonal Resort Community
Family Paradise Seasonal Resort Community, a Killam Leisure Living property managed by Cathy and Mike Mulholland and their daughter Dana, is located just northeast of Seaforth on a paved road. The Mulhollands have been running this resort for six seasons and Cathy says it’s a “very family-oriented” campground. It has 180 seasonal sites with full hook-ups and 43 sites for transient campers with water and electricity.
The newest feature for the property is three cabins for up to six people. The cabins were added two years ago and have proven a popular option with the latest interest in “glamping”. The cabins have a bar-sized fridge, a barbecue, firepit and a picnic table with access to a shared kitchen, making “roughing it” just a little easier.
The big draw for the campground has always been its events. There is an active recreation committee that takes great pride in organizing fun, themed weekends including Halloween in September, a Labour Day baseball tournament and the ever-popular toilet plunger toss weekend.
While COVID-19 has curtailed many of the events, the committee was still able to find a safe way for the kids to enjoy Halloween last September. Instead of the traditional trick-or-treating, the committee collected the treats from the campers and created candy bags. They then had the kids dress up at their own site, while the committee went around and passed out the bags. Saturday morning crafts were held the same way, with kits and instructions passed out to the campers at their sites instead of being hosted in the recreation hall. Cathy is looking forward to a return to events after the pandemic and once everyone can be safe again.
The property itself features all the amenities to make your stay great. The most popular features are the jump pillow, the heated pool and the large pond, where fishing for bass and bluegill is permitted under a catch-and-release program. Daily rentals are available for stand-up paddle boards, kayaks, paddle boats and Corcl boats.
