Upon our arrival John promptly greated us and helped us park our trailer. After we were set up they invited us for pizza dinner / break bread together. We spent a lovely 3 days there, which allowed me to show my wife the area. The site was on a gravel driveway and relatively flat / level which made setting up the trailer very easy. We would definitely stay again.

We had a very nice stay with John and Karen. They took us on a short tour of the neighborhood and recommended a couple spots for dinner. They have a nice level gravel spot next to the house and even ran a power cord out for us to use. We enjoyed chatting with them, and left early the next day. Highly recommended.

Our host was very helpful to the point of standing out in the rain to help me back into the camping space. We really appreciated their help and hospitality.

The location is a great spot to take in the local shopping centers and restaurants. The host was a big help parking, backing up our 31 class A motorhome into the space
