Two unanimous votes Tuesday evening by the Lake Waccamaw Town Council opened the way for owner Lynn Hinnant to expand Lake Waccamaw Campground “over to the old Dupree property,” he said.

The council held a public hearing before granting Hinnant’s request to rezone parcels of land he recently bought across Waccamaw Shores Road from his campground. Formerly zoned residential but undeveloped, the approximately 0.8 acres next to his One Stop store will now be commercial.
