Let me entertain you with a fascinating tale of how Escott Bat Resort came to be! It all began in the early 1960s with Ed and Flo Escott, when a humble campground with a few charmingly rustic cabins sprang up. And thus, the name "Escott Bay Resort" was born.
But that's not where the story ends. In 1982, a new owner took over and had grand plans for the property. With a visionary spirit, this owner transformed the resort into the thriving business that it is today. From those humble beginnings, Escott Bat Resort has evolved into an exceptional destination for all those seeking relaxation and adventure in equal measure.
So come and experience the magic of Escott Bat Resort for yourself! You'll be captivated by the rich history and modern amenities that make it a truly unforgettable place to visit.
