Ellingson Campground CUP


Mon, Apr 16th, 2012
Posted in All Government

Scott and Karrie Ellingson requested a conditional use permit for a ten site primitive (tent) campground. The hearing was during the Planning Commission’s April 12 meeting. The Gud-I-Nuff campground will be located two miles northeast of Preston, Section 28, Carrolton Township.

The couple is planning 50 foot by 50 foot sites with a 10 foot parking area. Karrie Ellingson said they want big, private sites for families. Porta Potties will be used in the beginning, but there are plans to build a concrete containment or holding tank for sewage. There is a 24 foot by 24 foot shed that will work as an office. Campers will use the basement in the couple’s home in case of a weather emergency.

Bob and Sandra Benson were concerned about noise. Scott Ellingson said it would be quiet time after 10:30 p.m. The Ellingson’s said the event they have had in the fall, Scottyfest, is a one day event. It is held to raise money for children in need. During that event, there have been concerns from neighbors over loud music into the night. Karrie Ellingson assured them there will not be any loud music other than for that event and the volume will be reduced for that event also.

Two conditions were put on the CUP including a limit of ten campsites and campers must use the campground designated driveway (not the private drive). All campground rules will be printed on the CUP. The request will be considered by the county board on April 24.

Camping Cabins and Park Models

The commission had a lengthy discussion on proposed changes to the ordinance pertaining to recreational camping. The intention is to include camping cabins and park model campers.

Duane Bakke said they need to distinguish between a park model and a regular motor home. Gary Ruskell said the park models are restricted to 400 square feet.

The major concern was to limit the location, so cabins and park models would be kept out of the flood plain. Bakke said campers allowed in the flood plain must be licensed and on wheels so they can be moved out fast and legally. Cabins will be constructed on a concrete slab and they would prefer that park models be put on a concrete slab.

Bakke stated that anybody with a current operating campground would have to reapply and do a different site plan it they wanted to add camping cabins.

Ruskell maintained that the county can’t regulate everything and th .....
