Getting here is an adventure. Curvy, narrow road with lots of RV's going the other way. The entrance fee was $10, but since we only stayed an hour, it was free! Parking is a real challenge, but it was a summer weekend. Be careful, lots...More

We just purchased our FIRST travel trailer, so no more hotel reviews for a while. Decided we could spend three or four nights in a campsite for the same cost as one night in a hotel, thus extending our vacations. Our FIRST break in trip...More

If you are going just to eat, you can get free parking for one hour as long as you get the restaurant to stamp your pass. Otherwise, it's $10.00 for the day!
