Quiet hours at this park are from 10pm-7am. It is now after 11pm and one of my nearby neighbors (a homesteader) has been blasting his stereo inside his motorhome for the past 3 hours. I don't know how the people in the RVs next to him stand it. We're here overnight and our stay cannot end soon enough for me. I hope to get at least a decent night's sleep. No one is around to enforce quiet hours and it's apparent the permanent residents here know that and take advantage of it.
We made reservations yesterday and were assigned a site, #52. When we pulled up to the site, someone was already parked there. They were overnighting too and hoping we would be a no-show. They left and found a different site. As we were hooking up our utilities, we noticed the resident in site #51 next to us had strapped his satellite receiver to the top of the grill on our site. We asked him to remove it and he asked if we were using the grill right then. We insisted he remove it and he came out 15 mins later and grudgingly did it.
The park is full of homesteading residents with all their stuff spread out around their rigs and spilling over to the empty sites (like the satellite receiver I mentioned earlier). There's a definite trailer park feel to this place. Many sites are so close together, you can hear your neighbor yawning (as we did).
The cement pads are nice - long and level. Hookups are in the middle. Water pressure is in the red zone so use pressure regulator. WiFi is non-existent and there's no cable. There's trains passing nearby. And neighbors who play loud music late into the night. I can't wait to leave and never return to this trailer park. - Flippitti

This is a typical military campground with a number of semi-permanent residents who apparently have business on the base. Although it is an Air Force base, airplane noise is not a problem. The park and facilities are clean and well maintained and the hosts are friendly and helpful. The only thing we wished for was a dog park but there is a lot of open spaces for dogs to run. Just have to be on a leash. Sites are concrete pads closer together than usual on a military rv park, but not a problem for us. - Bojangles

We stayed for a night passing through. We were placed in the newer section of the park at a nice long pull thru with cement pad. The park is very nice and seems to be kept up. However there are quite a few long term residents that have lots of stuff around their sites that to me makes it feel like a trailer park. Site was level, close to neighbors but not on top of each other. No cable, but plenty of over the air channels. WiFi was pretty much useless. They recommend using a water pressure valve, which we did along with our filter and pressure was still good. A very nice park that we would like to see in the summer with all of the available gear rentals by the lake. Only heard one plane during our stay so can't complain about the noise. However we did hear quite a few trains during our short stay. Laundry was 75 cents per wash and dry cycle. We would definitely return. - pfogleboch
