Adventure Awaits: Laurel Springs RV Resort Opens

Adventure awaits. After more than a year under construction, the controversial Laurel Springs RV Resort has finally opened between the Union Pacific Railroad tracks that parallel Loop 494 and Lakewood Cove.

During construction, contractors:

Oh, and then there were the mysterious, unexplained black spots that kept showing up in the detention basin.

Grand Opening Theme: Adventure Awaits

With all that in mind, the Laurel Springs RV Resort came up with the perfect theme for its Grand Opening: “Adventure Awaits.”

In lieu of Grand Opening banners, marching bands, cookies and punch, the owner is offering 50% discounts through February 15th. The online booking form showed one flat rate – $69 per night – for all spots, sizes, and lengths of stay.

But the form was a bit confusing; it showed yucca trees and mountains in the background! Imagine the surprise when the snowbirds arrive!

Photos Taken During Grand Opening

Here’s what the resort looked like earlier this week.

Looking NNE from over power line corridor
Northern portion was not yet complete.
Looking S. Ideal spot for railroad buffs.
Water collecting below detention basin has not dried in months.

I counted ten RVs on the day I took these photos. But I never did see the yucca trees and mountains featured on their reservation page.
