As per a report, the company broke ground on 56 acres along Joe Frank Harris Parkway, just west of I-75 in Emerson.
Nestled along the Etowah River, just four miles away from Red Top Mountain State Park at Lake Allatoona, Winding Waters will have a beach entry pool with waterslide and lazy river, clubhouse, bocce and pickleball courts, picnic and fire pit areas, a playground and dog park, and water activities like paddleboarding, kayaking, and fishing.
The resort will also have cabins, vintage airstreams, and glamping tents.
“Winding Waters provides overnight and weekly accommodation options that are missing in metro Atlanta,” said FSP partner Reece Stead, adding that “We chose this site because it offers a beautiful backdrop for riverfront RV and cabin accommodations within easy and quick access to one of the most traveled interstates in the country.”
We have long welcomed travelers to enjoy the amenities we have to offer and believe this new luxury RV resort will enhance our reach and provide needed lodging for people visiting the metro Atlanta area,” Said Kevin McBurnett, Emerson city manager, said
Forrest Street began investing in RV parks in 2017, ahead of the current trend, looking outside the mainstream for new opportunities.
The company’s first ground-up investment in Winding Waters comes American demand for recreational vehicle travel has increased, with the sector experiencing significant growth and Atlanta a prime destination for RV tourists.
According to the RV Industry Association, 2022 will be another strong year for the RV industry, with close to 600,000 shipments of vehicles slated for the U.S. to supply heightened demand.
