The superintendent of Beaver Creek Park said 2012 was a really good year for revenue at the park, with high use through the summer.
“This is a … phenomenal year, ” Superintendent Chad Edgar said.
Edgar said the budget for the park this year was about $180,000. The total revenue of the park was about $190,000 after the state bed tax is deducted.
That revenue will be applied to next year’s budget.
The good year follows a series of increases in rates approved last year, including raising cabin lease rates from $300 to $350, raising reserved campsite rates from $40 to $50 and raising cattle grazing lease rates to $11 a month per animal unit, up from the previous rate of $10 per animal unit for each of September and October and $9 for November and $8 for December.
The breakdown was:
• Cattle grazing leases, $83,318
• Cabin leases, $42,000
• Park use permits, $31,000
• Camp Kiwanis reservations, $19,240, plus $100 for the Kiwanis Chapel
• $8,320 from campsite reservations
• $7,215 from haying
The state took $2,484.50 for bed taxes.
