Meanwhile, visitors to Flying Flags see that our 2013 resort improvements are well underway and should be ready by spring break (end of March). We are remodeling the swimming pool area with cabanas, new surfacing and furnishings. The front patio will be nicely lit and feature a gas crystal fireplace and sofas. New splash pad water features will also be built next to the playground and pool.
And the dogs won’t be left out either, with a new, much larger dog park location under trees. We also have several new cottages and vintage Airstream rental units on the way. You are going to love the changes!
Please keep in mind if you are visiting us between now and the end of March, there will be construction areas and some amenities (like our pool and spas) that may not be available when you are here. We are doing our best to keep things quiet & clean but we do have improvements underway.
The award-winning Flying Flags Flying Flags RV Resort & Campground is ideally located in Wine Country, only five minutes from the Danish town of Solvang and the Chumash Casino Resort.
