According to court records and town records, a private campground which five years ago had alienated the state, town, and the Cape Cod National Seashore, will be transferring some of its lands to a local conservation trust.

According to court records, nine and a quarter acres of the campground, Hortons Camping Resort is being transferred to Truro Conservation Trust as mitigation for the destruction of Eastern box turtle habitat. The total area of the campground is 38 acres.

Fred Gaechter, trust president, stated that “once we have taken ownership it will remain conservation land forever. It cannot be sold or developed by anyone else.”

According to Barnstable Superior Court documents, both the campground and the town reached an agreement. According to court records, an agreement or stipulation must be filed by October 8.

Court records show that the campground and the state Division of Fisheries and Wildlife reached an agreement.

In an Aug. 18 Town Planning Board meeting, the campground presented a plan to donate 9.61 acres to the trust. The request to approve the subdivision of the campground at 10 Old Dewline Road, 67 South Highland Road was referred to the Cape Cod Commission for mandatory review.

“The Parties are very close towards reaching a settlement,” said campground attorney Donald Nagle, and town counsel Jonathan Silverstein in a joint court filing on June 11, regarding the case involving the campground and the town. According to court records, the case was resolved on July 29.
