Great location for local attractions

Quiet, except for road noise having site on the main road. Well maintained park, no campground Wi-Fi at site 63 and 64. Our site had water but no pressure so comes out as a trickle. Filled our fresh tank and used the pump which was fine. Close to all the main attractions in the area.
