STEEP HILLSIDE: If you use the laundry facility, or perhaps the shower house... you will be walking down, down, down to get there and up, up, up to get back. It's quite a journey and depending on which site you are issued, may involve a set of stairs as well. If I had any issues with mobility, this place would be a nightmare. Honestly, you can't even take the dog for a lap without feeling like you just did a session on a stairmaster. It's pretty awful.

FACILITIES: We visited in October, so understandably the pool was closed (but be advised it is very, very small) and hadn't been winterized (neither drained nor covered) so was a dirty eyesore. The single laundry is small, and the showers were a bit dingy (that hair stayed there all week - gross!). Their amenities are meager at best.

SEMI-PERMANENT RESIDENCES: The majority of the sites are occupied by people that have temporary work in the area or that otherwise have no home, but work in the area. Many monthly tenants, not too many vacation campers. This place lacks any personality that we have found so appealing at many of the parks we've traveled.

WEEKLY RATES: Be aware that if you book with these guys for multiple weeks at the weekly rate, they will charge your card for the full amount of your entire stay upon arrival. If you request to pay weekly, they will threaten your future week's reservation and tell you that you (1) may have to move to another site or (2) a spot may not be available at all. They have a misleading policy online that states:

"ANY FORM OF CANCELLATION, INCLUDING PARTIAL CANCELLATIONS, 7 DAYS OR LESS PRIOR TO ARRIVAL DATE RESULTS IN A CHARGE OF 1 NIGHT FEE. NO SHOWS WILL BE CHARGED FOR THEIR ENTIRE RESERVATION, MINIMUM CHARGE WILL BE 1 NIGHT FEE."

Potential guests should know that the words "PRIOR TO ARRIVAL DATE" are key here - once you have checked in and they have swiped your card, there will be absolutely no refunds on any future weeks that have been paid, regardless of what the online policy states. The management is unhelpful in offering any type of resolution, not even as a partial credit for future use. Take note of how many times you can spot "NO REFUNDS" plastered around the place, pretty ridiculous.

FINAL THOUGHTS: You've been warned - don't do it.

This is a nice forested park and you really feel "in a forest." However, the entire park is on a hillside that is "terraced." Some sites can be difficult to get into. I'm in a Class C with no tow, and I found site 52 a little dicey to get to and to back into. I had a site that was "everything except sewer" which is a few dollars cheaper. Thus, I had to drive by the sewer dump in the morning. Wi-Fi was spotty. Cable was all analog, and due to the unexpected rains (which is why I stopped here), the cable was "Snowy." My TV's are all the same brand and normally all scan the same channels, but one of my TV's did not pick up all the channels. Also, the person at check in told me I would get an "itemized" receipt. This was not true. I got ONE large paper with just the total. I asked for an "itemization." I was told it couldn't be done and that her screen did not show an 'itemization." Also, their web site says "all posted rates are net of (various organizations) discount." This basically means EVERYBODY gets the same rate and THERE IS NO DISCOUNT! But you will get a beautiful woodsy experience here. I did not get to try out the restrooms.
