          A travel agent recommended this location for myself and two teens (18/16) for a couple nights. Two questions - will it be hot/humid in July considering the lack of AC? Are the tents buggy? (can you tell I'm not really much of a campler?) Also, what did you do to entertain yourself at night? My kids may go into shock with no TV. Is the Wi-Fi as bad as some claim? I'd be fine without either, but I dont' want to hear endless whining. Thanks!
