Check-in time was 3 p.m. There could be a $5 charge for early check-in.

As the two RV Gypsies approached the campground gate, there was a sign there that said "Yelp to enter" so Lee opened the RV window and yelled, "yelp" and the gate opened. After checking in with the office, the two RV Gypsies received a gate card so they would not have to yell "Yelp" ever again.

Check-out time was 2 p.m. with a $5 charge if checking out after 5 p.m. with office approval.

Most campgrounds have pretty much the same rules, however there were a few unusual rules here.
- Washers and dryers in RVs are NOT to be used while in the campground. This one really upset the two RV Gypsies. Being able to do laundry is one reason they pay for a campground instead of boondocking.

- Air conditioners are not to be used unless with 30 amp service. So if you get a 50 amp site to have more electric power (which costs more money) you cannot use your air conditioner. This is very strange.

- Each campsite is limited to one family (2 adults, 3 children under the age of 21)

- No fireworks or discharging of firearms allowed.

Water pressure was a bit low. Campground Wi-Fi costs extra.

- The campground does not guarantee specific campsites.

The two RV Gypsies took a brief walk around the campground and took a few photos as shown above, but they were out of the campground most of the time except to sleep. They did not get to participate in the ice cream social or anything.
