Tourists and those seeking an escape could soon find a new destination to visit within South Carolina’s Conway area as Horry County Council voted in favor of a new RV park along Highway 544.
Traffic concerns have been brought up; however, the council believes they have found an alternative to that while still being in a position to serve an expanding business.
“I don’t think we have enough campgrounds, really,” said Johnny Vaught, an Horry County councilman.
According to a report, the plan includes 161 RV parking spaces equipped with amenities. Also included is a front office near Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge.
With many RV parks in the county located near beaches, Vaught believes that this could offer visitors a different experience and possibly a less stressful one.
“This gives them an opportunity to get away without all the tourist traffic and all that stuff you have to get into when you head to the beach,” he said.
If there were any concerns against this concept, the Tuesday night meeting was the right time to voice them. However, no one voiced their opinions during the public discussion.
The plan has to go through one more reading in two weeks.
