Longtime Lake Norman developer Dale Morrow is planning a 150-home community on Campground Road in Denver, N.C., on 64 acres owned by Belmont-Charlotte automobile dealer Keith Hawthorne.

The property is beside the historic Rock Springs Camp Meeting site, project spokesman Robert Davis said. Hundreds of people flock to the site each summer for religious camp meetings.

Morrow’s Rock Creek subdivision will be single-family detached homes, two-story and ranch, from 1,800 to 2,500 square feet. Homes will cost $200,000 to $300,000.

The development will be on the west side of Campground Road, about 2,000 feet north of N.C. 16 Business.

The developer has scheduled a community involvement meeting for 7 p.m. May 7 at Denver Fire Department, 3956 North N.C. 16, to detail his plans and receive public comments.

The plans are scheduled to go before the Lincoln County Planning Board in early June and the Lincoln County Board of Commissioners in mid- to late June.

Rock Creek will have two phases, and full build-out would take five or six years, Davis said.

Morrow’s major Lake Norman developments have included the mixed-use Waterside Crossing at N.C. 16 and N.C. 73 in Denver, the Liverpool office-retail complex (Michael Waltrip Racing) in Cornelius, the Lakeshore Marketplace retail center in Cornelius and such lakefront residential communities as Royal Pointe and Malibu Pointe in Mooresville.

He also is planning The Village at Sherrills Ford mixed-use project on 206 acres at Lake Norman.
