Price was alright for full hook up sites. Spots where not level and didn't have much grass though.
No playground equipment. No on site laundry. There was room for the kids to run and explore, but still not that family friendly.
Staff was friendly and helpful.
Bathroom were locked with a code to keep the non campers out. No soap or had dryers for the sinks. No where to put your clothes so they don't get wet.
Wifi was fast, but not reliable. It seemed to go out often, but would usually start right back up.
Spot was not level. Had to use blocks on one side and then the rear stabalizers barely reached. It looked like there might have been a fire ring, but most of the rocks were missing. There was a picnic table and some grass. The site were plenty big enough.
No laundry on site.
Dixie Caverns on site. You get super discounted rates to tour the caves if you are camping. Worth it.
There are some older more run down looking full time rvs on site. This may be a detraction for some folks. Didn't bother us. Everyone seemed pleasant and decent.
My best friend is shipping out in less then 60 days to Iraq (or where ever it is that they send the army to these days) and we haven't seen them since we were traveling nearly two years ago.
It will cost $1200 just in fuel to get out there and back, but if just 100 donate $12, then we can make it.
If supporting military and supporting families is something you enjoy, then consider helping. And of course we will blog about it every step of the way for you and you get to be a part of something bigger then yourselves. :-)
Thanks in advance, and God bless!
