This place was a gem! The staff made it very special with their awesome attitude and treating us like family. There were so many great, spacious, sites to choose form that were nicely spaced apart. The location was great as it was conveniently located around a lot of great places to visit and the views were very breathtaking. Everything was nicely maintained and they had many great amenities and activities that really made our visit special. I loved the museum being so close by as it was a real treat for all of us! Overall we had a very nice visit for a really great price! - Review provided by RV Park Recommendations & Reviews Facebook Group
