The Sioux City (Iowa) Council, by voting in favor of its consent agenda Monday (Nov. 28), approved a resolution to accept more than $104,000 in grant funding for the Big Sioux River Campground development project, according to the Sioux City Journal.

The resolution authorizes the Parks and Recreation Department to accept a Resource Enhancement and Protection Fund grant in the amount of $104,998, which will support the purchase of 16.14 acres of land, on the north side of the Sioux City Railroad Museum, adjacent to the Big Sioux River.

The RV campground will offer 79 motorhome and trailer campsites, with the potential to serve between 316 and 474 campers. The campsite pads will accommodate motorhomes, toy haulers, teardrop campers, campervans, fifth-wheel trailers and popup campers.
