Frankfort RV Park Proposes Expansion Plan

An RV park in a northern Michigan town that attracts lots of campers in the summer may soon be expanding, according to a report.

The Crystal Lake Township Planning Commission held a meeting Wednesday evening to discuss a plan to extend the RV park in Frankfort.

Frankfort Crystal Lake RV Resort is planning to add 70 sites, a bathhouse, and a 5,000-square foot storage structure.

However, the township’s zoning restricts the size of an accessory structure to 2,000 square feet.

Before the project can proceed, the zoning board of appeals must first approve a variance for the structure, the report added.

The 57-site RV park was established in 2011, and the developer said that the expansion would be beneficial to the community in various ways.

“It brings resort people to the area. It brings people that want to spend time here and spend their money here and support our local economy. Project Civil and Design Engineer Sarah Ross said. 

“It also takes that transient population out of our residential area and puts them in the campground, so it really accomplishes a threefold for the community.”

If the variance is approved, the next step is to organize a public hearing.

After that, the planning commission would then vote on the site plan and a special land use permit.
