Sumpter RV Park Sign Vandalized with Graffiti

Share this article

The owner of Whistle Stop RV Park set to open in spring in Sumpter, Oregon is of the opinion that recent graffiti on his business’ signs could be linked to his dispute with Sumpter City Council over permitting and utility fees.

Jon Patterson and his wife Rebecca are offering $500 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons who vandalized the sign for the RV park, a report said.

Patterson claimed they discovered the graffiti upon returning to Sumpter on February 20 after a trip to Idaho.

“It was a childish, disgusting act and many Sumpter residents are as sick about it as we are,” Jon Patterson wrote on the Whistle Stop Facebook page. “I truly hope this act of hatred and vandalism doesn’t discourage anyone from coming to Sumpter to enjoy the outdoors whichever manner they choose.”

Patterson stated that he’s not accusing anyone because he doesn’t know who was responsible for the graffiti.

However, he is angry over what he describes as a “runaround” that he and his wife have had to deal with Sumpter City Council regarding their business.

Patterson plans to open the 50-site dry-camp (no water or sewer connections) RV park on May 1. It would remain open until November 1, depending on weather conditions.
