A place to camp and relax could be mean new tourism for one community.

People have had a public spot for decades in Evans County to fish. Now, they'll be able to stay and enjoy it even longer.

The county teamed with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources to announce an expansion of the public fishing area that will include 25 camping sites where people can use tents or RV's to enjoy nature, especially the public lakes.

County leaders hope it offers something for local families but also attracts new visitors who discover their community.

They hope to have the sites ready and open by summer of 2018.

They'll have power and water available for RV users. They'll also have reservations and info online, so people can make reservation from there phone, get here and already have everything set.
