A groundbreaking ceremony was held Sept. 16 for the construction of an RV park in Catawba County, N.C., according to the Hickory Daily Record.

The campground will be called “321 RV Park” and will have 73 sites with full hookups. It is being built by RSH Properties LP of Hickory and will be on Startown Road opposite the Apple plant near U.S. 321, Exit 33, in Maiden.

The owners are Richard and Susan Harwell, Hunter Harwell and Shannon Harwell Queen. The campground will be a family venture, said Susan Harwell, president of RSH Properties.

“Our family members all have their own businesses, but we are coming together on this project to fill a real need in Catawba County,” Harwell said.

“Catawba County desperately needs an RV park to accommodate visitors with RVs coming to visit the county for business, funerals, weddings, and to work as contract employees for Apple and Duke Energy,” said Richard Harwell. “We hope to have a significant impact on the economic contributions that the RV industry has to offer the county.”
