Interesting history

November 14, 2018
Entrance is in town, no gate, roads are easy to navigate.
Utilities worked well, water pressure was perfect at 50-55 PSI.
Many sites are not level so bring your leveling blocks. Nice, shaded picnic tables at sites.
There is only one restroom/shower building which has to be shared by all of the campgrounds! Hate to see what this is like on a busy summer day!
Lots of interesting historic buildings to explore. Several nice trails. Equestrian camping and lake swimming a few miles away in separate section of park.
Groceries and restaurants a couple miles away in town.
Quite a bit of traffic noise from the nearby highway and some machinery noise from nearby oil fields.
In spite of the negatives, we did enjoy our stay.

We stayed here in a Travel Trailer.
