There were lots of train noise, horns and road noise, making it hard for Karen Duquette to get a good nights sleep here. Only a few TV channels came in here, which is better than none. The campground is within driving distance of a few points of interest nearby. There was also limited Wi-Fi with code (no streaming, no uploading).

Standard campground rules applied. Children under the age of 16 must be supervised at all times. There was a pool, which the two RV Gypsies did not even notice. You can purchase a ticket to wash vehicles.

Below: The Observatory was closed whenever the two RV Gypsies were in the campground, but they were really only in the campground to sleep at night, so they did not get to go inside the observatory. The Observatory looked very small to the two RV Gypsies.

Below: The picnic table at their site was definitely NOT usable. Luckily, the two RV Gypsies seldom want to use the picnic table anyway.
