A company in Pennsylvania is proposing to turn a Holiday Inn into a $75 million resort casino by putting 36 RVs on the property to rent as rooms and by opening a large RV park.
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Penn Harris Gaming thinks a resort casino in Camp Hill would appeal to an underserved population—people who travel the country in RVs looking for places to visit. A six-acre parking area would be converted into RV World, where RVers could park while gambling.
By adding 36 new RVs to the hotel and renting them as rooms, the company would meet a state requirement that a hotel casino have 275 rooms. The hotel has only 239 rooms. The proposal is one of a number of projects competing for permits from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.
