Developers have permission to begin work on a 20-acre RV resort in Grand Haven, Mich., television station WZZM reported.

The Grand Haven Planning Commission approved plans for East Point R.V. Resort.

Resort general manager Mike Lepo says think camping, but upscale: “A clubhouse with a pool, cable wi-fi, water, and sewer.”

The construction work should finish in time for a May opening.

The RV resort will have long-term camping, something campers can’t do at the nearby state park. It could draw several thousand new faces each summer to a part of Grand Haven most pass right by. “We have great support from many of the people in this area,” Lepo said.

“It will help us, it will be good,” said Adonna Hole, who believes her cafe will sell more food, with campers ordering the dishes she once served to tannery workers.

The investment is around $2 million and developers are already looking ahead to someday invest more money to build a restaurant and bar.
