Ind. RV Park Looking To Expand Due To Demand

The demand for recreational vehicle camping spaces at Dubois County (Ind.) Park has steadily increased, and fishermen have mentioned that it would be nice to have a restroom near the lake.

The Dubois County Park and Recreation Board discussed those ideas at its meeting Tuesday (Oct. 10) morning.

“We’re taking a look at all of those things,” Christine Prior, the board’s president, said Tuesday afternoon. “We want to determine what should be done and how much it is going to cost.”

According to The Herald, park board members have heard for years that the RV camp sites stay busy and pretty much filled. Prior said that as of the end of September, the revenue generated from camping will be about $15,000 more than it was just two years ago — meaning that the number of rentals is continuing to increase.

“We feel like we’ve seen an increase in the usage and demand,” Prior said. “We want to take advantage of that demand. But we want to also make sure we are cognizant of the cost so that we can reap some financial rewards from it. We don’t want to just put something out there and it not be used.

An idea for adding sites that was mentioned Tuesday was to pour concrete pads for RVs at the current tent camping site. Tent camping would then be moved to another “more primitive area,” Prior said.

More research will be done and other ideas will be brought to the table, she said.
