Changes to campgrounds on TVA land up in air

PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) -- Changes to campgrounds regulations and pricing on Tennessee Valley Authority land are on hold while an association of campers, marina and campground owners sue over the changes, leaving some wondering what the possible changes mean for them.

Marshall County Tourism Director Randy Newcomb told The Paducah Sun no one knows what to expect should the new policies take effect because each campground has a different agreement with TVA.

Differences come in the variety of leases and easements. Under new regulations, some marinas and campgrounds will have to pay either the fair market property value or a gross percentage of revenue to TVA.

The new rules were supposed to go into place on Tuesday, but the Shoreline Alliance filed suit in federal court Dec. 10, temporarily blocking implementation.
