Happy 4th of July!

This place was a little Jewel! We just did a quick stopover to use the facilities, took a needed shower, hiked to the cave and explored the park. It's a Thursday and we only found one other person in the park. It felt like we had the place to ourselves and at $12 a night for camping you can't beat it.

This is definitely a unique Campground. It caters to the old folks driving RV. Bathrooms were clean as was the campground. Each site is very open There is almost no privacy. There are signs everywhere with rules in the pool is only open from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. so we didn't even get to use it.

They made a great dry cappuccino. Very sparse Cafe and they need better artwork for that coffee house feel. Very friendly folks working the counters and Wi-Fi friendly. I like the fact that it had a local feel.

Great for a quick camp. Fishing and mellow hikes among colorful mini-cliffs. Get site 20 and you can fall asleep to the stream's riffles. An oasis amongst all the corn fields.
