Early Site Map
In 2002, the Florida Department of Transportation started plans to expand State highway 44 to four lanes. As part of the construction, DOT, through the use of eminent domain, took over many acres of the land on the north side of both parcels. Mr Hinds decided to sell the remainder of his parcel to Schrako who recombined the original eastern and western parcels. Although now missing from the original tract would be the church property, County Road 249, the loss of the northern edge to DOT and 10 acres Schrako donated to Sumter County to build the boat landing. As of 2004, the original 70 acre tract now consisted of a total of 40 acres.
In 2007, Schrako sold the entire 40 acre property to Central Florida Resort Property Management who renamed the campground Thousand Palms RV Resort.
