Construction continues on a 1,300-square-foot facility that will serve as the welcome center for the Fleetwood RV Camping Resort at Lowe¿s Motor Speedway.

Designed by Southland Log Homes, the log structure will serve as the registration office and welcome center and will also offer laundry facilities and a general store for year-round use by campers.

The interior, selected to compliment the warmth and rustic theme of a log structure, will be furnished with the Dick Idol line provided exclusively by Klaussner Furniture. Idol, a North Carolina native, is a renowned sculpture, utilizing outdoor themes for interior designs.

Scheduled to be completed in February, the multi-use structure is the latest in a series of improvements and expansions of the Fleetwood RV Camping Resort since it opened in May 1999.

Located on Speedway Boulevard, adjacent to the Tom Johnson Camping Center, the Fleetwood RV Camping Resort features 462 sites, each with water, power and sewer hookups, grill and picnic table. A limited number of sites also offer cable TV connections.

In 2002, the year-round facility hosted more than 50,000 campers. Other amenities include a large, covered pavilion and oversized shower and restroom complex.
