Florida to Get 195-Unit RV Park

Jackson County Commissioners in Florida recently approved a development order authorizing the establishment of a large RV campground to be located between Old Spanish Trail and U.S. 90, approximately a half-mile east of State Road 71 in Marianna.

This story by Deborah Buckhalter originally appeared in the Jackson Country Floridian.

The location sits roughly behind the Panhandle Tractor/Kubota dealership. The RV developer has reached an agreement with that business to ensure that an existing chain-link fence between the properties will be enhanced to further create the sense of separation, county officials had said in discussing the proposed order.

The park would be developed on a 28-acre site in two phases, with space for 195 units. Phase I would include preparation of the first 151 units, and Phase II the remaining 44. The park would use public water and sewer services. It has a general density allowance of up to 12 units per acre on the site.

Shadeville Investments of Crawfordville is listed as the owner, with Sherry Sellers the agent of record. Wilson Creek is a partnership created for its management.

It is structured as a condominium-style project, in which the Shadeville/Wilson Creek investors can either sell or rent small lots to people for the temporary placement of their RVs. The vehicles must be moved off the property at least every 120 days and kept off site for a period of time.

The development order is awaiting the signature of Jackson County Commission Chariman Eric Hill.
