Ignore the long description!

BEWARE: The super long narrative has absolutely NOTHING to do with this campground! Had it been written by the owner, I would have given it zero stars. This lengthy description might describe the general area but not this facility. It’s a nice, very tiny campground right next to the road into town on which some locals apparently enjoy ‘rolling coal’ at 90 miles an hour. Walking a dog is a bit risky. Good place for a quick overnight though. Power was good but let the water run a bit because it’s brown when first turned on.  Payment CASH ONLY.

Peaceful

This is a small privately owned campground. It's not in a city but not far from a few busy ones. You get the feel of a country stay but the owner is so friendly and helpful that you feel like your visiting family or friends. The site we had had a nice sized front and back area which was nice with our larger dogs. Most of the other campers there are workers for the refinery nearby. Only 2 of the 12 sites seemed to be long term and they were all well kept. Mr Jim the owner works but is just a text or phone call away and actually lives (in a silo or feed bin his family converted into a house, which we thought very interesting and unique) right around the corner. So if you're ever in the area it is worth a stop. While there look for the sign to buy the eggs, best brown eggs I've had in awhile (thanks ricky).
