Nebraska Fairgrounds to Develop 48-Site RV park
The Lexington City Council in Lexington, Neb., has approved a special use permit from the Dawson County Agricultural Society for an RV park development on the north side of the Dawson County Fairgrounds in Lexington.
The 48-site RV park will be located on the east end of Walnut Street where there are currently parking spaces for fairgoers. The overnight camping area will have facilities for potable water, sanitary waste disposal and 50-amp hookups, The Lexington Clipper-Herald reported.
Fairgrounds maintenance manager Dave Jewett was at the Feb. 14 council meeting to answer questions posed by council.
In his presentation, Jewett advised the lots for campers would be 30-foot by 60 foot and have a standard street slope of no more than 2 percent. In addition, RVs could stay a maximum of 30 days.
"It's more for the community during the summer," Jewett explained.
The fairgrounds are a destination spot each year for events such as the Plum Creek Rodeo, the Antiques Extravaganza and the Dawson County Fair.
