The park will be located next to the new North Georgia College Campus and possibly be part of the Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA) franchise.
Kieffer intends to open the campsite one year from now.
It will be protected by the Toccoa River Ordinance and meets all requirements of the Fannin RV park ordinance.
Currently, larger RVs like fifth-wheels must travel to Union County or elsewhere to park for the night.
Kieffer assured him that they wanted variety in the campground after extensive studies of families who camp together. An older couple might own a large RV, while their children have a travel trailer, and the grandkids stay in tents, so the owners want to make sure everyone can stay in one place, noted Kieffer.
“We don’t want to be exclusive. What we’re going to do is offer sites for everybody,” commented Kieffer.
Additionally, the new recreational facility should contribute to the county’s hotel and motel tax.
