A 207-acre RV resort worth $18 million, Forest Grove RV Resort is coming to Dandridge, Tenn., in the fall of 2022, according to 10News.
“I looked all over three counties,” developer Tim Hine said. “And I tried to do something in Sevier County a year and a half ago, but Sevier County didn’t want to have it.”
The future home of Forest Grove sits on Harbin Road right of Interstate-40 in Jefferson County.
The Jefferson County Planning Commission unanimously approved Hine’s plans for the park in December 2021.
Forest Grove will have 500 sits for RV’s, 100 rental cabins, four bathhouses, and an indoor café.
Hine adds there are plans for a water park, a catch and release fishing pond, a 50- by 80-foot dog park, basketball and volleyball courts, and three-mile nature walk around the resort all for $18 million.
“When you go into a project like this it’s either you’re all in or you’re all out and I wanted to be all in,” he said. “So that’s why I decided to do it – make it one lump sum and go for it.”
Forest Grove RV Resort will also provide cable and Wi-Fi to every campsite.
Hine added there will be a two-night minimum stay to avoid traffic in the park.
