It was vary well maintained and vary nice owners
My wife & I recently stopped in this park for an overnight. We arrived in late afternoon & as suggested by the park owner on the phone pulled into site #11 (designated as an overnight site), registered, paid, and attempted to hook up. Hooking up was made extremely difficult due to the dog - poop "minefield" & the next door neighbor's semi-aggressive dog who's chain extended halfway into our site. We finally settled on just connecting our electric. I really didn't want to lay out my waterline through the dog poop (in fairness the neighbor did finally clean up much of their goods messes). This is a park crowded with long term/permanent RVers & familys, but was reasonably quiet. Most of the noise was from the seemingly endless trains that pass in close proximity to the park and seem to be air - horn happy. Didn't use the parks facilities & water so can't comment on those. Power seemed fine. Easy /off highway. VERY reasonable rate (We paid about $16 I think).

Have to drive about a mile on a very dusty gravel road to reach the campground. Check in is self-serve. For 30 amp site we paid $18 for one night. There are very limited sites available for over nighters. Most of the sites are occupied by what appear to be permanent campers. The campground is recovering from storm damage; so it probably was not at its best appearance wise. Things did look a bit shabby and rundown. My wife said the women's bathroom was clean and nice. If you are just looking for a place for the night as you travel through, this might be OK if you are not looking for any amenities other than full hookups at your site. Wifi was marginal at best but pretty much non-functional at our site on the far south end of the campground. A telephone number is posted for assistance. Someone always answered the phone and provided answers to our questions.
Is it right on the HWY yes... Hints the name... Do you drive down a dirt road yes. The owners are friendly and its an open RV park with full hook ups & pull thru sites in the winter. Its not the best but its by far not the worst.
You drive a mile down a very dusty gravel road to find that most of the spaces are occupied by permanent residents. The spaces that are open all have 5 gallon buckets over the power heads painted with "RESERVED". No one bothered to even acknowledge we were there. What a joke! Checked out the bathroom/shower area and it looked like something from the 30s. It didn't look like it had much maintenance since then, either. We moved on and found a much better park.
Spent two months here. Nice big flat spots. A little hard to find but worth it. We will be back.
This as a nice place to stay over night. Full hookups and the spaces are perfect. Best to find this place during the day sns you may very well miss it if you drive at night.
