The site is located on a quiet, unbusy residential street so it was easy to manuever our 37-ft rig to back into Al’s spot. The lawn area was level and hard packed. We needed a second electric cord passed under the rig to reach the power pedestal but otherwise no problems. Visited with Al a bit as we set up then we were busy with family visits in town. Nice and quiet overnight. We noted the mention in a previous review of low hanging moss on trees at the entrance to the neighborhood. We stayed to the center as suggested and our rig (13’ 6”) had no problems. A great convenient stop.

We have a tall 5th wheel, 13'4" there are some "low hanging spanish moss" limbs just before you get to their street. Just stay at center and it will just be moss. For long rigs,(we are 45ft rv and pickup, so close to 64 foot) its very "doable" for the location for electric hook up. I would stay there again. Neighbors all were very nice and plenty of wild life.
