Plans are moving forward for an RV park at Seawolf Park in Galveston Texas, a project estimated to cost nearly $2 million.

The Park Board of Trustees has approved $120,000 from Federal Emergency Management Agency public works funds to pay for an architectural company’s engineering and administration fees to get the project started.

In a budget update to the park board, Randall-Porterfield Architects estimated the RV campground will cost $1.89 million and include 44 RV spaces.

Within the next six months, the park board, which manages and promotes some of the city’s tourism industry, will be ready to accept bids on construction, Lou Muller, executive director of the park board, said.

The RV park will be developed on about 4 acres left of the entrance to the park and west of the parking lot at Seawolf Park, a popular fishing spot and home to naval exhibits such as the USS Cavalla.

“While Dellanera RV Park is very popular because of its location right on the beach, the Park Board of Trustees and staff feel that an RV park at Seawolf will be equally, if not more, popular because of the additional recreational opportunities it will offer,” Muller said.

The board expects to break ground on the campground in the spring and complete work in February 2012.
