Bedford Co. VA, Considers Extending Camping to 6 Months

Roanoke Times - Roanoke,VA,USA
The Bedford County Planning Commission will hold a public hearing tonight on a proposal to dramatically increase the maximum number of nights that campers can spend in campgrounds.

Tom Buck, owner of Mitchell's Point Campground and Marina on Smith Mountain Lake, approached the commission with questions regarding the ordinance earlier this year.

The current county ordinance limits the number of nights to 30 per calendar year, has never been enforced. According to Buck, "I think it is sort of an oversight."

Buck rents his campsites on annual contracts. He estimates 20 percent to 30 percent of his tenants stay more than 30 days per calendar year.
