David, a native of Vermont, first came to Belview Campground as an energetic tyke visiting his grandparents, Bob and Joyce Morse, who ran the campground for over thirty five years. Campers remember young David as a flash with a fishing pole that was always headed to the water. David’s parents would barely come to a complete stop in the driveway before he was out of the car, running to the water with pole in hand, flipping up rocks along the way to harvest bait.
David followed his passion for the outdoors by attending Paul Smith’s College to pursue his degree in Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences. There, he met Tara, a native of Buffalo, NY, who was pursuing her passion for guest services by studying Hotel, Resort, Tourism Management and Entrepreneurial Studies.
After completing their Bachelor’s degrees, the two made professional progress in their respective fields of study. David worked on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife’s invasive species containment program, and also furthered his experience as a taxidermist. Tara worked at the Inn at Shelburne Farms & the Essex Resort & Spa, followed by a successful tenure as a General Manager for Visions Hotels.
But the magic of the Northeast Kingdom called! In 2015, the couple moved to Barton to assist Bob and Joyce with the campground operations. The following year, David’s grandparents happily retired, while Tara and David officially took over campground operations in 2016. Sophie, their friendly and energetic Alaskan Malamute joined the Belview family in May 2017. She quickly became loved and well known for her hugs and kisses! Tara and David then welcomed their first human baby, Annabelle, to their family in June 2020.
David currently operates the campground full-time through the busy summer season, and focuses on Bushey’s Wildlife Taxidermy in the off season. Tara works in the office at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center, and manages the office operations for Belview Campground.
