Pickens County Rejects Proposed RV Park

In Pickens County, South Carolina, the county’s planning commission denied a proposed recreational vehicle (RV) park on Mile Creek Road within the Six Mile community, according to a WYFF News 4 report

Pickens County showcases the Blue Ridge Mountains and Appalachian heritage for adventurers and nature enthusiasts, including hiking trails, walking, and stunning views of nature.

The decision came after a deliberation, culminating in a 3-2 vote against Michele Trubey’s plan to establish the park. Residents raised concerns about the viability of the proposed RV park.

In defense of her project, Trubey addressed the commission, asserting her thoughtful approach to the development

“I’m not haphazardly, carelessly, or thoughtlessly going about this. A great deal of thought has been put into what I might use this land for, so it does benefit the community at large. I also need work and need to prosper myself,” Trubey said, as quoted in the WYFF News 4 report

The proposal outlined the development of facilities to accommodate up to 25 RVs, complete with essential services such as septic systems, electricity, and running water.

“I feel like if they did this RV park, they would do their very best to make sure that this didn’t impact any individual that’s living around that area,” Resident Cathy Parish said.

South Carolina offers a treasure trove of outdoor activities that cater to every type of adventurer. Each region showcases its own unique blend of activities and historic sites.

The allure of the mountains and forests presents an irresistible call to hikers and nature lovers. The physical challenge of the hike, combined with the natural beauty of the surroundings, provides a rewarding experience that epitomizes the essence of outdoor adventure in South Carolina.

A wide array of activities are available, ranging from paddling serene rivers and lakes, embarking on historic journeys through time, and enjoying the companionship of a horse on scenic trails.
