Nice Website, accommodating owner. Electric on site, but you must fill your tank at the entry point when you come in. It would be nice to see sites for a little more level, but then again how would I hone my leveling skills? Lol

It was the end of September 2021 as my husband and I were going to be passing through the area and looking for a quiet place to spend the night that wasn't in a highway or interstate. We saw this place on a Google map so I called and spoke to owner Walter. He said even though he was closed for the season the night we we wanted to stay, he would allow us 1 night. Nice guy!
The place is older, very open and easy maneuvering for any rig. Nice fishing pond, I would bet it is busy in the summer. Kids would love it!
I asked Walter if he would allow us to pull in in November on our way back through the area. He said YES! Just give him a call or text the a couple days before os work out details, We did and told us to use site 9 or 10 and let us know a few hours before our arrival. He turned the electric on for us, water was available, but garbage wasn't. Only charged us $27 ($10 off). reat experience!
The only negative was that there is a train track north about a 1/2 mile. We could hear it (maybe 4 times 4:00pm-9:00 am), but it did not impact our sleep.
