Water at campsites   

Please be advised that the individual water at each campsite will be turned off December 3, 2018 for the winter months as we do not have frost free spigots and they will be in danger of freezing and pipes bursting.  There will be hot water available for showers at the shower houses and water spigots will be available near shower houses for campers to fill up holding tanks on RV/campers as needed.
