    The property is very small, expensive for primative tent camping. Sites are VERY close to each other. You have to haul water from the restrooms. The Toilet and Showers are closed from 11:00am to 7:00pm. So you have to use the most disgusting port potties...More

    I'm not posting a review to comment negatively on the owners or employees. I was actually very impressed with their hospitality, seeings that I was on crutches with a fractured ankle. The property was clean, rather small ... but very quaint! And they do have...More
