The Grand County Council voted unanimously Tuesday, Feb. 19, to approve campground owner Greg Robinson’s request for a conditional use permit that will allow the expansion.
Robinson and his wife, Sue, have owned the campground at 3225 South U.S. 191 for the past two years. In peak months during 2012, Robinson said, the facility could not accommodate all potential customers who had the larger RVs.
The big rigs often pull cars or jeeps, which requires a total of 70 feet of parking space, according to Robinson. The new RV camping spaces will be developed on just less than 2 acres at the 16-acre campground.
Robinson had previously said he hopes to start construction on the expansion in March.
The KOA currently has 140 sites, including 38 for tents, 27 cabins, and the remainder for RVs of varying sizes, Robinson said.
