Yesterday, when we arrived, it was raining like crazy yesterday and made things a bit difficult to get set up. I felt like I would never dry out. For some reason the electricity was giving us grief but we were able to get it figured out this morning. The guy next to us was having issues, too so there must have been something up with all the rain. We used the space heater in the bedroom and added an extra blanket and we are all warm and cozy. This morning the rain was gone and there was nothing but the pine forest smell. Ahhh. I 💗 the woods!
When you first come to the campground you are greeted by a Texaco gas station and a store. The gas station and store are owned by the owners of the campground. There is propane on site, so that nice to have that readily available. Behind the store is a game room, TV, a haircutting station loaded with local "things to do" literature and laundry with 5 washers and 2 dryers. Outside is a dump station so even if you're in the campground you can hook up and dump if you need to. I wouldn't see the facilities are newer but they seem to be clean.
I then took a stroll down the lane. Right now, with all the rain, the main concrete roadway is fine, but when you head toward the more rustic camping, the roadway of gravel and dirty is filled with numerous potholes. There is a pile of gravel to fill it in at a later date - probably in early summer when the rain subsides a bit.
In the center of the camping area is a restroom building, but it's not working and there are only two port-a-potties at the site. They really should get that fixed and add showers. There are NO showers at this location.
At this point I could have continued down the road to the far end, but Scott has a meeting so I had to head back and watch the poochies while he had a meeting. As I turned the bend, I noticed a nice, flat concrete pad with a big fireplace. I wonder if this was once a foundation for an old cabin at one time...now, it serves as a gathering spot with two picnic tables.
All in all, it's not a bad spot. I've say it's average. I'd give it a 3/5 rating. There is pretty fast Internet but no TV Satellite connect-ability.
