Great Bend Chamber of Commerce commemorates Triple Creek Outfitters joining the chamber with a Ribbon Cutting and Coffee
The Great Bend Chamber of Commerce staff and Ambassador’s Club hosted a Ribbon Cutting on April 1st to commemorate the completion of a newly constructed 10 bedroom lodge, now home to Triple Creek Outfitters, owned by Richard and Kristi Blakeslee. Chamber members were invited to attend TCO's first Chamber Coffee preceding the celebratory ribbon cutting, and tour the lodge, located 15 miles south of Great Bend. Triple Creek Outfitters hosts 200 out-of-state hunters per year, plus hundreds of Airbnb customers.
Located on a section of land in the heart of Kansas, the Triple Creek Outfitters lodge boasts sleeping for 20, including two suites, a large great room with full kitchen, dining tables and large living area to gather with friends. Amenities include multiple TVs, pool table, back patio seating to view the Kansas sunsets and wildlife, a large pond for fishing, and lockers for hunting gear. TCO’s hard working team assures hunters and guests the best possible experience. From lodging and homemade meals, to the opportunity to hunt some of the best ground in Kansas, TCO promises you will leave as members of a family.
