A developer has taken interest in a plot of land in the city of Groves, Texas, to build a luxury RV park, according to 12News.

The proposed campsite is off 25th Street where Sims Elementary School used to be located. This has been in the works since April 2022 and the next steps involve getting a special use permit from the city of Groves.

Groves City Manager D.E. Sosa says the concept is a really neat idea, but it does come with some issues.

“We are just hoping that there is a way to overcome the challenges that come with additional wastewater needed to make sure that the drainage is done. Then making sure there is a right of way for widening 25th Street for what will be going there in the future,” he said.

Some of the proposed amenities include a pool and office space for rent, which makes it different from other RV parks in Southeast Texas.

“If the city council awards a specific use permit for the park, the council could require fencing, lighting and other things to make the area safer,” Sosa said.
