RV park fight continues

Property owners meet with Spartanburg County Council this week

LANDRUM—The fight to stop an RV park from coming to Campobello is continuing after a packed meeting at the Landrum Depot with concerned residents and Spartanburg County Council on Wednesday. 

Area homeowners of the proposed RV park along Landrum Mill Road have been expressing concerns for months and have a petition against the park. 

Nearby property owner Beth Laughridge said she’s having a hard time understanding why the developers would choose a property for a commercial venture in the middle of 2 conservation areas and 4 homeowners associations. 

Pat Dogget said the portion of the land sold by her family was sold under the impression it would be used to plant organic vegetation. 

T Tree Farms is proposing the RV park with 50 spaces on part of a 38-acre parcel. 

Nearby property owners say they are concerned about the traffic on the small road as well as water and sewer concerns. 

Spartanburg County officials said T Tree Farms has applied for a septic tank permit and had a recent traffic study that suggested road restrictions are not needed. 

Some have other opinions about the proposed RV park. Anne Pierce said at the meeting that people bought the property fair and square and they are jumping through all the hoops. 

Spartanburg County Council is going to take the information and consult with the county attorney before making a decision.
