MONROE TOWNSHIP – The grand opening of a new campground, ATV park and concert hall is scheduled for next month.
Melissa Light, co-owner of Black Rock Adventure Park and Campground, said the park has 90 campsites with water and electricity, plus unlimited primitive sites.
“We’re going to be offering an off-road park for people to bring their ATVs and side-by-sides to come ride, with some trail running and obstacle courses as well, and then also having a few concerts this summer,” Lumiere says. “We’re having our grand opening event on Memorial Day weekend, which we’re about to announce.”
The property, located on Weaver Road in Monroe Township, was purchased on Feb. 11 and work has been ongoing ever since, Light said.
“Right now we’re completely renovating what used to be an old clubhouse, because it was an old golf course,” she said. The building is being renovated to become an office, camping store, shower and games room.
Excavation work was carried out on a swimming pond, Light said.
“We are planning in the future to install an in-ground pool, but this year we are doing the swimming pond which will have slides for the kids, a zip line and things like that,” Light said. .
A dog park is also planned, as well as play equipment.
“In the future, we plan to make it a really nice RV resort with all the amenities,” Light said.
She said Kyle Krieg, one of the park’s other co-owners, had been working with the previous owner for several years to reach a deal.
“It’s been on his mind for several years now, and it’s finally coming to fruition,” Light said.
People will be able to purchase day passes for the mountain biking and side-by-side portions of the park, Light said.
Light said that in the future, the owners would like to have a restaurant on site and provide amenities so visitors don’t have to leave the facility.
“We have 223 acres here, so we have plenty of room for growth,” Light said.
