Kevin Stickens, owner of Grandview Cabins & RV Resort.  Our family moved to South Fork in June of 2017 after deciding the big city was no longer for us and it was time for us to get back to our small-town roots.  My favorite thing about South Fork is the location and access to all my hobbies such as ATV trails, hiking trails, hunting, fishing, and skiing.  Also, we are thankful to the friendly people who have welcomed us to this community.  I enjoy volunteering my time helping with the Friends of South Fork, logger days, chili cook off, dog sled races, community Easter egg hunt, and whatever else the town might need help with.  I believe in community, and I am looking forward to serving the town of South Fork for the next several years.

I have been a permanent resident since 2018 after retiring from the City of Tulsa, OK after 32 years of service. I have been enjoying South Fork as a visitor since the late 1980’s and want to see it continue to flourish in the coming years so others can enjoy it like I have. My husband, Scott, and I have been married for 39 wonderful years! We have 2 children and 2 grandsons. I love reading, spending time with friends and family, cooking, rafting, and exploring this beautiful area from our side-by-sides. Please feel free to stop me and introduce yourself!
