about forever resorts

Headquartered in Scottsdale, the Forever Resorts family of companies owns and operates more than 65 unique vacation and entertainment properties located in or near National Parks, Recreation Areas and National Forests across the United States.

"Forever Resorts is committed to providing you with an immersive getaway
so that you can experience all the adventure that nature has to offer."

Our company features some of the best qualities in property preservation and customer care as well as exceptional management and marketing capabilities in the lodging, marina, food service and retail business. We are also the leading company for providing luxury houseboats rentals at our Forver marinas.

Our First Properties

Forever Resorts had its beginnings as a National Park Service (NPS) concessioner. Rex Maughan, president and founder of Forever Resorts, made the first acquisition in 1981 - Callville Bay Resort & Marina on Lake Mead, and Cottonwood Cove Resort & Marina on Lake Mohave, Nevada. Both operations are located in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.


And Then...

Operations expanded to lodging properties including the Grand Canyon, Grand Teton, Isle Royale and many others in both State and National Parks. As our organization has grown, added popular tourist destinations have come to include additional marinas including Pleasure Cove, Lake Oroville and Bidwell Canyon in California.

A Higher Standard

At Forever Resorts, we hold the protection and preservation of the natural environments in which we operate as our highest priority. Regarding this commitment, some of our initiatives include the construction of the world’s first ever LEED Gold Certified floating building at Cottonwood Cove Marina, recycling and waste management programs at many of our lodging properties and marinas as well as consistent Environmental Achievement awards through the National Park Service.
