Forsyth City council (Georgia) discussed a request by the KOA campground owners to purchase 4.2 acres of City of Forsyth property adjacent to the 32.5 acres that currently make up the KOA campground.

According to a report, Mayor Eric Wilson said the request was made by the granddaughter of the late Ken Bowman, who now runs the campground, and her brother, who owns it jointly with her.

The 4.2 acres was a wastewater treatment facility but hasn’t been used by the city over the past years.

Wilson said that the KOA manager said the land the KOA is looking to buy from the city would allow for 45-60 campgrounds.

KOA has been looking at expanding in a different direction but would prefer this property. Council has voted to have the city attorney review the process of surplusing the property.
