recreation waterfront land

I own nearly 7 acres on the Skyhomish river south of Monroe WA with 500 feet frontage. Land is flat, many Doug fir and cedar trees and pasture. Older legal septic tank and drainfield. Power very close. This is not an offer to sell but rather seeking opinions whether there would be much demand for an RV owner who wanted lots of space for their own campground. Land is not buildable.

Sounds like it might be on a flood plain but still good land for nothing permanent.

That is correct

Some years no flood, some it may get wet for a day or two, dries very fast with no damage. Use it for 350+ dry days, just don't store rv year round. Can't build but you can use more than you would want for recreation. Not everyone wants a structured campground with close neighbors. Lots of land for less than most campsites you can buy.

Any restrictions (other than wetlands) that would prevent or hamper your doing it? Is septic system big enough to handle multiple RVs? We have toyed about building several lots in the back of our 6 acres, but have it for sale so we can become homeless ramblers.

Sounds Great, If, you can get it past the planning board. Just something to pounder, some friends of our started/reopened an old camp ground and when it came to the septic system, they had to in stall a 15k (15000) gal tank for every 10 sewer hook ups. Now mind you, this was in southern Mich. They also had to install one the same size just for the bath house and this was just to bring it back to code. This old camp ground was a water and ele only back in the day and it only had 35 spots to begin with. Today, there is 100 spots all with ele, some with water/ele and we stayed there for a whole summer, they were still working on the full hook ups spots. They also have 2 small cabins as well as a Heated Pool. Lots to think about when you're getting things around for the project. Good Luck and if you do open one, post it so people can stop by for a stay!
