With family now snow birding in the area, we came here to visit for the holidays. We sure are glad we didn't have to spend much time in this park as we were otherwise occupied.
The park is more a mobile home park with permanent structures. The RV sites are just whatever is currently open and are scattered throughout. Meaning your neighbors are likely full time residents in the area - and you're an imposition to them. We much prefer being neighbors to other RVers who get the transient nature of the lifestyle. Other RVers in the park were extremely friendly however.
Since the sites are designed for installing mobile homes, the hook-ups are not designed for RVs. On the site they assigned us, the water and electric were 150 + feet away from the parking pad. The park did bring us an extension cord, but it was only for 30 amps, so we were paying a premium for 50 amp service but not able to use it. The water spigots were in such disrepair that we had to use a neighboring sites to fill our tanks and then disconnect. The water pressure was so low that it took forever to fill our tanks.
The park itself has not much ambience or character at all. Just generic and blah. Our site was so barren and ugly, it was shameful. No grass, but a bunch of weeds with painful stickers that got caught on our feet, clothing and cat.
On future visits to the area, we will be checking out other options and will consider this a last resort. And to think, they charge a $3 'resort fee' for these amenities, on top of the daily rate. Just awful.
