D Melton and Bill McLeod, both South Carolina natives with combined 60 years of residential and RV development, are opening an RV resort in Columbia, South Carolina.

D is a board member of the Carolinas Association of RV parks and Campgrounds. 

According to a release, this facility is planned for 270 sites ranging from 75 feet to 120 feet which will be able to handle the newer and larger Class A RVs while towing a car or trailer.

All sites will be full hookups and most are designed for pull-thru “to make it easier and safer for RVs that stay with us,” Melton shared.

Big Rig Friendly RV Resort is located at 336 Gardners Terrace Road in West Columbia,  approximately 1 mile from the SC State Farmers Market.

“We see our location as key,” Melton said.

The new RV resort is within minutes of three interstate highways, downtown Columbia, University of SC, Lake Murray, golf and tennis, Riverbanks Zoo and Garden, as well as many hiking trails such as Congaree State Park Waterfront Park, and more.

The developers also have many amenities planned, including a zero-entry pool, gym, dog parks, pickleball, and basketball courts, walking trails, as well as movie and meeting rooms. 

“We are building a destination RV resort that RV owners will love and love to come back to,” Melton added.

The developers plan to open the first phase in early March and immediately begin construction on the second phase and amenities.

“I am excited about this project. This is the third facility I have built, and my experience in the first two is helping me with the design and construction of this resort,” said Melton.

Bill McLeod, D’s business partner, said that Melton has become one of the more knowledgeable persons in this field in the southeast.

“He is always involved in every aspect of the design, construction, and operation of any facility he is a part of. I enjoy being his partner.”

Big Rig Friendly RV Resort is making a reservation list with many people calling and making plans to come in. They will also be at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa for the Florida RV SuperShow from Jan 19 through 23 at Booth A18.
