The Marion Campground and RV Park won't be finished until next spring, but the first campers arrive this weekend.
Advertised as the "premiere RV park in Southern Illinois" the developers plan on 58 full service sites and 27 pull-through sites.
When everything is finished, the park will include a convenience store, laundry and shower facilities, plus amenities such as satellite television and wireless internet available at each site.
The new park is located off of Seventh Street just north of Main Street east of Exit 53 on Interstate 57.
The website is easily remembered as www.MarionCampground.com.
