“The lights went out in Tailwater”

We had a 3 rig group. We all had a wonderful time. We were their for 3 nights. It was very relaxing? We had a great view of the water… the grass could have been trimmed, it would have been nicer. The park attending were super nice!! Definitely want to go back. Only complaint is the electric…
