Across the road I saw several properties advertised for sale, with several real estate signs posted. I see this as encouraging ... if several properties are for sale (and depending how motivated the sellers are) it could lead to a buyer's market, and I can't see a great demand for these properties. If there was, why would several of them (still) be for sale?
Sounds logical to me. Will you call and get a quote on the lots? I am curious now too.

Chateau Elan winery and resort is not far away, Road Atlanta is also pretty close (thinking this might appeal to racing fans and teams needing parking for events).

Any insight on what it would take to get a campground running? What might make it appealing (and things that would drive campers away)?
I live in Suwanee and think this is a great idea

I'm more of a pessimist; because they all think they are sitting on a gold mine and don't want to give them up. Good luck just the same. Directly across the street is convenient but probably higher priced. If you're already RV'ing expecially with a toad, what's a mile away?
