Our Story

“Ask every person if he’s heard the story and tell it strong and clear…”

Entrance Sign With FlowersCamelot Manufactured Home Village is one of the premier retirement communities for 55 and older residents in Eugene, Oregon. Tucked into the northeast corner of the city with the beautiful Coburg Hills as a backdrop, Camelot is conveniently located near multiple shopping areas and services. Close by to the west, Coburg Road, offers grocery stores, banks, restaurants, and retail outlets. To the east, the newly expanded Gateway Mall is just minutes away and accessible via footbridge for walkers, bicyclists, and scooters. The mall includes numerous stores, restaurants, banks, a Post Office, and other services. Sacred Heart Medical Center & Hospital at Riverbend sits just 2.5 miles from Camelot while the Eugene City Center is also just 3 miles away.

Camelot Village is a gated neighborhood on private property which gives residents an added sense of privacy and community. The Village sits on 25 acres of flat land bordered by Sheraton Drive. To the east of the property across Interstate 5 is Springfield, Oregon. The Village contains 155 spaces most of which range in size between 4,600 sq. ft. and 5,400 sq. ft. Within the Village only new homes have been allowed, all double or triple wide with pitched roofs. All homes have driveways and attached garages or carports. Home spaces are leased for a standard 10 years with automatic renewal assuming residents’ qualifications. Pleasant and coordinated landscaped appearance is required from each home owner.

Pat's GardenThe Village contains spacious green ways, gardens, and a centrally located recreation hall, including banquet & meeting facilities, large sunroom w/ dance floor, relaxing TV area, exercise room, and swimming pool. The Main Village entrances have rolling security gates which are closed approximately 9 PM – 6 AM.   By policy, all homes in Camelot should have one resident who is 55 or older. Small house pets are allowed if they are individually approved by management. Pets are kept in the confines of the owners’ homes – they may not be off leash in the village or out of doors without owners’ presence. A newer addition to our community is a very popular fenced Doggy Park, where pets and their owners may socialize and play.

Our newest phase, Cottages@Camelot, has been designed exclusively for smaller energy efficient homes and has four lots available depending upon size. Watch for installation of new homes on these lots commencing in 2016-17. The main village lots are all full. Houses are periodically for sale by owner or listed by owners’ realtor. All prospective buyers for any home in our Village must qualify for and be pre-approved for residency before they may purchase a home in Camelot.

Camelot is Oregon family owned and managed: Camelot Babcock, LLC owned by the Babcock-Krenk Family, Nell Babcock, Chris Krenk and Hanna, Elliot, and Miranda Babcock-Krenk. All three children have been raised with Camelot as an integral part of their lives and have contributed to the workings of the Village. Nell manages the business from their Lake Oswego office where Hanna assists her and Elliot has been providing on site management since the summer of 2015.

EWEB Rec CenterWe have been blessed over the years with an exceptional community of citizens in Camelot Village. Although people come and go, the vast majority of our residents spend many, many years in our community. Since each house is resident owned, ownership is passed on only when the residents or their heirs sell their homes. Our residents take great pride in the appearance and comfort of their neighborhood.

On-site management is readily available on a daily basis. Office is located in the Recreation Center. Tours and/or informational meetings are available anytime by appointment.
