Kentucky City Prepares to Open New RV Park
The Carrollton, Ky., municipal RV park is in its final weeks of construction as crews complete major parts of the site. Mayor Gene McMurry hopes to have the campground open by the end of this month, the Madison (Ind.) Courier reported.
Several things still need to be done at the campground, such as putting the finishing touches on the bathhouse, landscaping the site, and installing exercise and playground equipment. Some asphalt needs to be laid and a pavilion still needs to be constructed, but McMurry is confident that everyone is working hard to ensure the campground is finished.
"There's a lot of thing to do to get ready," McMurry said. "But we'll try, and we're working hard to get it right the first time."
The city council expects to set the campground rates at today's meeting.
The plan is to have the RV park open for a free weekend at the end of April for local people to try out so that any bugs in the system can be worked out.
"I'd rather have my friends tell me there is something wrong first than having something go wrong for paying customers," McMurry said.
The first weekend in May, the plan is for the park to be open to the public and for reservations to start coming in. The city council decided to join a reservation system that will take reservations over the Internet, and customers can pay up-front for the site they rent. The city also plans to have a reservation-system touch screen at the campground so campers who do not already have a reserved spot to know which sites are available.
