Nebraska Fairground Eyes 48-Site RV Park
The Dawson County Agricultural Society presented plans Wednesday (Nov. 2) to the Lexington Planning and Zoning Commission for an RV park at the Dawson County Fairgrounds in Lexington, Neb.
The facility would provide space for as many as 48 vehicles and livestock trailers, the Kearney Hub reported.
“The idea has come from many people who use the fairgrounds for the wide variety of events we have,” said Dave Muirhead, secretary of the ag society.
The number and variety of these events is expanding, he said.
The entire RV park will contain electrical hookups, Muirhead said. Tents won’t be allowed, and the fairgrounds’ prohibition of alcohol will continue.
“We want this to continue to be a family-friendly environment,” Muirhead said.
The site will be the large tract of vacant land north of the large livestock show barn.
It will be accessible from East Walnut Street and on a road that passes through the north end of the fairgrounds.
Muirhead said the ag society hopes to attract the state high school rodeo.
Early in the meeting, the commissioners agreed to recommend a change in zoning regulations that define tent camping as a separate category not to be included in RV parks.
The commission requested a plan displaying greater details, and Muirhead said he will provide one.
