Foxwoods Resort Casino wants to further expand its entertainment and business complex in Mashantucket, Conn., by way of a sprawling recreational campground, according to Casino.org.

Foxwoods recently announced its plans to construct a high-end, resort-like campground with Blue Water Development (BWD), a Maryland-based hospitality developer that specializes in campground management. Mashantucket Pequot communication reps tell Casino.org that the envisioned project will be family-oriented.

The project is targeting land owned by the tribe at Avery Pond, located along Route 2 in the town of Preston. Foxwoods and BWD last week submitted plans for the recreational campground to township officials.

The campground, if approved, would include a variety of camping sites, a pool complex with waterslide and splash pads, tennis and volleyball courts, pavilions and a campstore. The area would be serviced with utilities, including water, electricity and bathrooms.
