When making reservations over the telephone, the two RV Gypsies immediately knew that John had an uplifting attitude and would be a delight to meet. Upon arrival at the campground, their first impression of John was confirmed because he had an extremely pleasant personality that looks for the best in every situation.
Big Country Campground used to be a KOA, but is now privately owned and operated. It is a small campground. Their site map shows sites up to number 42, but some numbers appeared not to be listed on the map. There were only a few 50 amp sites, and the two RV Gypsies were lucky enough to get one.
They list TV Reception on their paperwork, but the two RV Gypsies only got two analog stations to come in via antenna. On their second day there, the two RV Gypsies noticed that the RV that was parked next to them had left and they had a cable box, so Lee hooked up to it and got a few more TV stations in, but they did not come in clearly.
John gave the two RV Gypsies a code for the Wi-Fi, but it was so excruciatingly
slow, that the two RV Gypsies gave up on using it. Then on the second
day, the Wi-Fi worked OK. The pool was closed, but if open, the hours
were listed as 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. The two RV Gypsies did not check out
any of the other amenities other than their site, which was full hook-ups
and nice, but near the road, so of course there was road
noise all the time.
Check-out time was 11 a.m. The campground kept its gates open all day, but to maintain campground security, the gate at the front entrance may be closed and locked at 11 p.m. All visitors must be out of the park at that time. Most standard campground rules applied.
