Tent Site, Pad, No Hookups

Tent guests should know that tent sites are in close proximity to neighboring tent sites (as well as other RVs), are closer to the main road through town, and are on the opposite side of the park ( think longer walk) from the bathrooms/showers/laundry/guest sinks. If you’re looking for a super quiet, super spacious, forested tent sanctuary we cannot offer that in our tent area. That said, the tent sites are in a closer proximity to the nearby grocery store and town brewery and many tent campers have told us they think the new tent sites are great!
