Island Oaks RV Resort, founded by father and son duo Carter and Chris Funk opened in April 2022. Their vision was to make a family friendly resort with amenities to entertain guests of all ages. Both enjoy playing pickleball with their spouses as a family activity and wanted to ensure Island Oaks offered courts for other enthusiasts as well. Their plan is to continue development of Island Oaks in several phases to include additional RV sites, Rental Cabins, and amenities with planning underway.

From a young age, Brandon Aderhold enjoyed sneaking into the kitchen to read cookbooks and watch cooking shows by Chef Auguste Gusteau. Brandon’s father forbid him from following his dreams of becoming a Chef. When Brandon learned of the savage food critic, Anton Ego, giving a bad review to his hero, Chef Gusteau, Brandon made his mind up and went against his father’s wishes. Today he is the Chef, and Food Service Coordinator of Island Oaks tavern and Grill. He loves coming up with tasty new specials and dishes for Island Oaks while interacting with guests to give them the best service possible.
