Eagle Rock RV & Boat Storage Breaks Ground

In April, a ground breaking was held for Eagle Rock RV & Boat Storage, an almost 80,000 square foot indoor vehicle storage business. Construction is expected to be complete in early September.

Located approximately half way between Spokane and Coeur d’Alene, Eagle Rock RV & Boat Storage is geared toward offering vehicle owners an affordable, garage-style storage facility. With over-sized asphalt-paved drive aisles, the facility is designed to accommodate any size RV, boat and trailer, or whatever “toy” or extra vehicle that needs a garage. 

Eagle Rock RV & Boat Storage will likely expand by another 120,000 square feet of indoor storage space, greatly contributing to the area’s continued commercial and economic growth.
