Andrea, We want to apologize for the inconvenience of the canoes in your space upon arrival. As I'm sure you noticed we are currently making improvements to the park and the construction crew must have moved the trailer out of their way and into the campground space. We also apologize for the birthday party. We are working on improving our processes and would like to offer a free weekend at our campground if you would be interested either this year or next summer when all improvements are complete and processes are improved. Please feel free to email me at email@example.com for more information. Kind regards, Stephanie
