Flamingo Lake RV Resort has completed its first major expansion since 2009, adding 60 new, permanent sites at the popular RV venue in Jacksonville, Fla.

According to the Florida Times Union, Flamingo Lake Assistant Manager/Marketing Director Ken Loyd reported that work started on the expansion last year — and was necessary given the popularity of the resort.

“We have special events throughout the year, but we got to the point that we were booked up every week beginning in the spring and had to put potential visitors on a waiting list,” Loyd said. “While that’s a good problem to have, we knew if we didn’t provide more spaces for RVs, those people would eventually stop calling.”

The new section of the resort is gated 24 hours with paved sites, manicured grass, and full hookups for long-term or weekend rental.

“Our new section has been designed primarily for full-time campers, but we’ll be using any available sites there for overflow on busy event or holiday weekends,” Loyd said.

With the addition, the resort now offers nearly 360 sites for temporary visitors and full-time residents — along with five cabins and two yurts available for rental at the resort. The expansion added another 15 acres to the resort, which now covers 66 acres.
