Good location
September 15, 2012
Clean and well kept. Poor site layout, many sites turned so entry door opened to street. Our fire ring was only about three feet from road. The 120 day limit is with a wink and nod. Homesteaders still there, at $13 a day they won't leave. Wifi is useless. The place is okay for stop over on your way to somewhere else.

We stayed here in a Class A Motorhome.
