New Campground Coming to Port Austin

Share this article

A new RV resort is coming to Port Austin (Michigan), though not without worries from village residents.

According to a report, the new RV area is being developed under Perry Heleski of Ubly. It would be located to the south of PAK’s Garage on Bridge Street, at the site of the former Salvo Tool and Engineering location, which was closed in 2007.

It will be a seasonal campground that can accommodate up to 74 campers and fire pits surrounded by a 6-foot fence.

The property’s main entrance would be located on M-25, next to the car wash.

Village president Todd Murawski said that the water and sewer authority is working to bring sewer and water services to the site.

During the Port Austin Village Council’s meeting, a few residents expressed reservations about the proposed campground, claiming it would bring more traffic to the area.

They also said that the proposed site contains arsenic which is poisonous in its inorganic form, in the ground from its former life as a factory.

The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy is responsible for granting campground licenses in the state and conducting tests on groundwater for arsenic.

In addition, about Bridge Street, since the road is technically located on the property of the new campsite developers, the area between Arthur and Madison streets will be closed for a period of time while the deeding and surveying process is sorted out and potholes are repaired.
