Sewer Right Off My Doorstep!
Yuck. Two feet from my modestly sized camper door was the neighbor's sewer hose. Not very nice for $65! Most of the park was the same way, but after driving through storms all day, I took it anyway. I'd recommend spots #23, 32, 38, 14, 25, 33 which are end spots and have a bit more room. Not all sites have a fire ring, probably to prevent people's sewers from exploding. In any event, the staff was friendly, and the place seemed to have nice things for kids to do.

Clean Campground
Had a great stay. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Would have to disagree with being tight for big rigs. Lots of big RVs here. Very nice general store. Entire campground is well keeped up and clean!

Not So Nice
Could be a nice park but spaces way too tight. Grass not mowed so wet dogs. Lady in the office was quite nice but didn't have a clue about parking big rigs. Jammed us in a site we barely fit in and put small rigs in larger sites. Noise from close highway terrible all night. Glad we only stopped for an overnight. Pricey.

Too Tight
Ok for a quick overnight stop. VERY tight spots. Neighbors sewer hose right outside our door and all the smell that comes with it. More than a night I sure wouldn't stay here.

The pull-thru sites are so close together you can not extend your awning or have a fire. Looks like lots of activities.

Most tightly packed together sites, I've seen. Some people (locals?) Seem to really like this place. We didn't. Facility is fairly clean, and fairly well kept. Some coach motor homes and large fifth wheels may have difficulty getting out if you have neighbors next to you and large rigs across from you.
