Officials from Rising Star Casino Resort in Rising Sun will break ground Tuesday on a new RV park. Financial details of the project were not released, however the development is expected to be complete by Memorial Day weekend.
The Rising Star RV Park will include various features, such as 56 spaces with hookups, private bathrooms with showers, a dog park, cable TV and access the Rising Star Casino Resort. The development comes in addition to two hotels already located on the Rising Star property.
"We are adding the RV Park to Rising Star Casino Resort to bring new tourism to our property and the community," said Dan Lee, chief executive officer of Rising Star parent Full House Resorts. "The RV travel market is large and growing, especially in our geographic region. Approximately one in ten households now own a recreational vehicle and the majority of these RVs were manufactured in Indiana. We believe the RV Park is a perfect complement to our existing casino, dining, sports and entertainment facilities."
The resort says Rising Star RV Park guests will have the same amenities as guests of the Rising Star hotels. Rising Star did not immediately state if any jobs would be created as a result of the new development.
