We stayed at this campground 12 years ago, and we are here again. It’s just like we remembered it.
As we arrived, the lady came down to greet us. She was very friendly, and showed us on the map the various areas we could stay. Basically any unoccupied spot. We came pre-season, so they have mostly open spots. Next week, they will probably be much fuller. But they were still getting some areas ready for the season. She did recommend a couple areas, and we drove off to look at them. We found a nice spot in the woods, right next to the restrooms and showers. There were some branches fallen on the spot, so I pulled them away, and we set up our tent. Then we went down and told here what spot we chose. The tent spot only cost $26 (no power or water though). Much cheaper than man of the other campgrounds we have encountered during our trip. But I guess the KOA’s are a little newer, and nicer.
The restrooms are old, and nothing fancy. The showers are the same way. Interestingly, the showers cost 25 cents for minutes. I forgot about the pay showers, but when I saw them, I remembered them from 12 years ago. I can’t remember if they cost a quarter back then.
The manager lady was also very helpful in locating a good restaurant in town. She also mentioned that they have WIFI, but I would have to come down by the office to use it.
