Current Briefs for RV Parks and Campgrounds
A Cantonment resident is looking to build an RV campground resort in Molino.
The “Lake Serenity Resort” would be located at 5424 Schaag Road, about a half mile south of Omega Drive. The resort would include an RV campground, tent campground and cabins, along with amenities such as a pool, bathhouse, playground and a pavilion, all near an existing lake on the 40 acre property.
The land is owned by a family trust, with Judi Aliff of Cantonment making a pre-application to the Escambia County Development Review Committee for the project. The plans must pass numerous other hurdles in the application process before the project could begin with final approval from the county.
From WAFB-TV, Baton Rouge:
A Hammond, La., man has been arrested for several burglaries at an Amite campground.
According to reports, Brandon Rogers, 34, was walking around Sweetwater Campground on North Cooper Road wearing a hard hat and carrying several items. An employee was able to detain Rogers before deputies arrived and arrested him.
Numerous items were stolen from one of the main cabins, as well as items from vehicles from nearby cabins.
Rogers has been charged with burglary of a business, four counts of vehicle burglary and four counts of possession of stolen property.
From WNDU-TV, South Bend:
A limited amount of campsites at Indiana state parks and reservoirs remain available for Labor Day weekend, Aug. 30 through Sept. 2.
Last-minute planners should make reservations soon before the campgrounds are booked to capacity.
Properties with sites left are: Charlestown, Clifty Falls (non-electric only), Lincoln (non-electric and primitive only), McCormick’s Creek, O’Bannon Woods and Versailles state parks; Lieber State Recreation Area; and Salamonie (primitive only) and Deam lakes.
A three-night minimum stay is required.
Remember to make reservations for fall camping. It’s one of the most popular times of year to camp.
“October has become like the busy month of July for our parks and reservoirs,” said Christie Wilmoth of the DNR Division of State Parks & Reservoirs. “With so much to see and do at our Halloween and fall festival weekends, you won’t want to miss out on all of the activities we have planned.”
