One of the most awaited moments during the campground expansion plan has finally arrived! At the end of this week, the CAMP STORE rolled through the Front Gate on a beautiful fall day in Grapevine.
The idea for a camp store has been on the drawing board for years, and to see it finally appear brought great joy to all of the staff, and campers alike. Did you hear the applause?
It took many tries to get the building into the right spot, tucked right in the middle of the campground and adjacent to the EPA (environmentally protected area) crosstimbers forest that hugs the southside of the park. This family-friendly gathering spot will be easily accessible to everyone that stays with us.
Once the building is stabilized and secured, carpenters will begin to build and attach a large covered deck on the front of the store. We are sure that it will become the gathering point of the campground for all kinds of special events, music, and visiting with other campers, as well. There will be enough room for classes, ice cream socials, or just playing a boardgame or cards.
As soon as the camp store is in place, there are plans to connect the new building area with a pathway and an upgraded outdoor patio and deck to the adjacent building, which houses the Laundry Room and central bathrooms.
The expanded area will now share the new location name of "Grapevine Station." It will be at the crossroads of Nectar Drive and Grapevine Trail on the campground.
