126-Site ‘High-End’ Arkansas RV Resort Gets ‘OK’

A plan for a luxury RV resort near Arkansas’ Kessler Mountain will be able to accommodate more camping while maintaining the same amount of tree preservation originally associated with the project, according to the Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette.

The Fayetteville County Planning Commission voted 7-0 to approve changing the layout of the planned Reserve at Mount Kessler. Commissioners Sloan Scroggin and Leslie Belden were absent Monday (Oct. 8).

The permit commissioners granted in February allowed 99 RV sites on about 7 1/2-acres. The changes the commission approved Monday allows 126 sites on just more than 11 acres.

The new plan expands the camping site west and adds another entrance on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to the east, said Melvin Milholland with Milholland Co. Engineering & Surveying. There was already an entrance planned a little farther west on MLK.

About 8 1/2-acres on the southern end of the property will be dedicated as a tree preservation. The new layout moves a few preserved acres from the southwest corner to the southeast corner.

The project has a different team behind it since the commission originally approved the permit, but the property’s owners, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, are committed to the same concept, said Tom Joseph with Griffin Commercial Real Estate.

Originally billed as a high-end experience in a rustic setting, that aspect of the plan has not changed, Joseph said.
