Camp Controversy

Updated: Tuesday, April 9 2013, 07:32 AM EDT
A judge is expected to issue a ruling soon on the future of Camp Hope in Haywood County.

Area residents want it to continue as a mountain camp for all to enjoy.

That was the intent when Champion Paper gave it to the town of Canton in 1925.

However, recently Canton leased part of the camp to a weight-loss organization.

An Asheville couple is suing saying that's a violation of the agreement.

If they win, they get the land and that's upsetting local residents.

They say if Canton wins, they’ll volunteer to fix up the camp and offset maintenance costs for the town.
