Our Story

Founded in 2004 by Matt Corrion, Outdoor Design Group has successfully completed projects ranging from master planned communities, to parks, streetscapes, and retail shopping centers.

Then, in 2010, Matt met Bud Surles and Amie Mersmann of Bud Surles Consulting Group. Bud was a leader in the Parks, Recreation, and Outdoor Hospitality Industry for both the public and private sectors for over 45 years. He held many esteemed positions over the years, including being named Director of Arkansas State Parks, before joining the National Park Service and becoming Assistant Superintendent of Yellowstone National Park.

Bud Surles Consulting Group was responsible for the planning and development of many acclaimed resorts, State Parks, and RV Parks. Bud completed over 100 such developments. For the next 8 years, Outdoor Design Group was partnering with Bud Surles and Amie Mersmann on resort projects across the country and internationally.

Today, our team continues this legacy, by providing high-quality design, planning, and operations consulting for the Outdoor Hospitality Industry. Our continued partnership with Amie (now of Mersmann Consulting Group) provides our clients with a world-class team of consultants with the experience and expertise to handle any project.
