The Pittsylvania County (Va.) Board of Zoning Appeals met Tuesday (Jan. 14) evening, where they, without opposition, approved an appeal for a special use permit to build a campground on Huntington Trail, according to the Star Tribune.

The board held a public hearing over the appeal from Rock Solid Hardscapes LLC to construct a 36-site campground in the Tunstall area.

Bert Lewis, president of Lewis Nursery, will be constructing and managing the campground, which he plans to name “Loblolly Lake RV Park.”

Lewis says his target tenants will be construction workers that will be in the area for the construction of the Dominion Energy power plant and solar farm at the Megasite in Berry Hill.

“It’s going to take years to build the solar park,” said Lewis, who hopes to take advantage of the influx of workers into the area.

Lewis is also hopeful that the Megasite will continue to bring in projects that require construction workers that will stay at his campground.

Lewis Nursery is based on Leakville Junction Road, just off of Huntington Trail. The plan is for the campground to be operated from the nursery’s office building.

Lewis’ park will not allow primitive camping, only RV camping.
