Canyon Lake History: Happy Camp restroom building remodel then and now

The last renovation of the restrooms at Happy Camp occurred in 1984.

The last renovation of the Happy Camp restrooms occurred in 1984. The renovation included new showers and shower curtains, a tiled floor, replacement of plumbing fixtures and toilets, and repainting of the inside and outside of the building as well as the entry shack.

The cost of the project included $10,000 for the tile, $27,000 for bumping, $1600 for painting, and $750 for miscellaneous carpentry work, according to the August 1984 edition of the Canyon Lake Community News, a joint publication of the POA and the Homeowners Club.

In September 2020, the POA Board of Directors approved the hiring of a design team to come up with a remodel design for the 37‐year‐old restroom building at Happy Camp.

On February 1, 2022, the POA Board of Directors approved funding in the amount of $392,383.20 for the much-needed renovation. The POA recently released a Request for Proposal for a full remodel on the building with the scope of work to include demolition of the inside, new plumbing, electrical, countertops, drywall, tile, restroom, and shower stalls.

The scope of the exterior work includes a new roof, stucco, stone veneer, windows, patio cover, doors, and walkways. When finished, the building will have a modern look matching today’s POA building standards and city codes including current accessibility compliance for ADA.

The POA invited more than 170 General Contractors to review the bid documents and received five bids ranging from $330,300 to $563,000. The lower bid was thrown out due to errors within the bid, the POA said.

Temporary restrooms will be brought on-site to accommodate campground guests while the restroom building is under construction.
