The Sleepy Eye City (Minn.) Council unanimously approved a proposal to expand the Sportsman’s Park Campground Tuesday (Oct. 9) evening, according to The Journal.

Plans call for an additional road loop in the park to include eight sites, pending approval by the Brown Nicollet Environmental Health Department.

City Manager Mark Kober said the existing campground was full all summer.

Steve Lingen, of the Park and Recreation Department, said there was a camping waiting list every weekend. In addition, he said all of the new camping spots would be within 400 feet of the new park restrooms.

Kober estimated the cost of the camping expansion at about $50,000 with water and power.
