Mich. Developers Looking to Build 98-Site Park (1/11/2019)

Story by Woodall's Campground Management

For decades city leaders in Muskegon have attempted to strike the right balance between preserving and developing Pere Marquett Park, according to WZZM.

They're likely to find themselves facing another similar decision in 2019.

Developers have contacted city leaders about the possibility of leasing a portion of the park to build a 98-site RV park.

Pere Marquette Park includes more than one mile of Lake Michigan shoreline and untouched dunes areas. The area under consideration is what's know as "the ovals". It's land inside the circular route of Beach Street around the park.

The Beachwood Recreational Park proposal was first presented in 2007. The new version of the plan includes changes residents who live near Pere Marquette had concerns about at that time.

The new design eliminates fire pits at all sites and includes just one community fire pit. A sight and sound berm with vegetation would circle the RV park.

The designs also includes a few retail shops, bathhouse, children's playground, picnic sites, and a natural area with dune grass and trees.
