Addition to Summer Hideaway RV Campground
Owner Jim Lewis described the addition that is planned for Summer Hideaway RV Campground. He says they purchased land adjacent to them and are requesting a zoning change for that property from Ag to Commercial. They are adding 70 sites, and there will be 1 septic for every 20 sites. All will have full hookups to water & light. They are also adding a combination bathhouse and pavilion, a children’s playground, and horseshoe pits. They would like to begin construction in the fall of 2016 with the intent of campers occupying the new sites in the spring of 2017.
