The Planning Commission of Michigan’s Houghton City approved the plans for grading a new campground along Canal Road on Tuesday in a partial review of the site plan, a report said.

The proposed campground is called “Gold Metal Rentals”.

This motion was contingent on deed restrictions; as well as a permit to be granted by the Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy, and Houghton County’s soil erosion and sedimentation control.

In addition, the Department of Natural Resources would need to allow the site for campground use.

As an unlisted Superfund site, the campsite must be covered with topsoil, asphalt, or pavement on top of any stamp sands. 

The elevation decreases from 612 feet at Canal Road to 605 feet at Portage Canal, said Lars Hyrkas of U.P. Engineers & Architects. They appeared along with Derek Bradway, manager for Gold Metal Rentals.

A complete site plan including sewer and water connections, driveways, and more will be submitted to the Planning Commission later.

City council property rezoned it from B-2 to Reserve in July. This rezoning will allow the campground and rental homes to be used.

The proposal that was submitted to the city before the rezoning, requests for an RV/tent campsite with 46 modern full hook-up RV campsites and 23 and tent campsites.

Another feature planned for the site is a water’s-edge pavilion, docks for watercraft and fishing, a boat launch, and a playground.

The Gold Metal Rentals’ owner also plans to construct 18-24 rental houses and plant around 350 tree species on the property.
