New RV park for riverfront? I-26 construction updates

Today’s batch of burning questions, my smart-aleck answers and the real deal:

Question: What is happening at the old French Broad River Campground at 1030 Old Marshall Highway? It appears that most if not all the structures have been torn down, and now the property has chain link fence up along Old Marshall Highway, with Beverly-Grant signage on the fence and a large Beverly-Grant construction sign.

My answer: Fingers crossed for a hotel/taco-truck-brew-pub!

Real answer: How could I have overlooked glamping? You know, glamorous camping.

“This is AutoCamp, which is nearing completion of their permitting package,” Buncombe County Planning Director Nathan Pennington said via email. “It is an existing RV park that is being renovated and converted into a luxury RV park facility.”
