This campground was built 47 years ago, at a time when RVes were quite small. So in the context of smaller RVs, all of our sites are back in sites and are 22-30' wide. Most are on the diagonal and a few are parallel to a 3ft railroad tie retaining walls. We have five 50/30/20 amp sites and the remainder are 30/20 amp. Most of our sites include a cableTV hookup. Our sites are either full hookup (electric, water, sewer, cableTV and WiFi) or water & electric (w/ WiFi and w/ or w/o cableTV). We have a few sites rated at 40ft and the rest are 36ft down to 20ft. Due to the proximity to sources of propane, our RV sites were set up years ago with no fire pit. There is enough room on some sites for awnings.
Kamper Kabins: 20
There are 17 one room Kamper Kabins and 3 two room Kamper Kabins. One room Kamper Kabins sleep up to 4 people and our two room Kamping Kabins sleep up to 6 people. They are rustic and cozy log cabins with beds (w/ mattresses), electricity, lights, heater, porch, outside firepit and a picnic table.
