Parking & Arrival
Drive up to the top of the hill and look to your right. There, you will see a large grassy area with limestone blocks lying in front of large concrete foundation pads. This area used to be a paved parking lot in the 60's so it can handle the weight of heavy rigs. I have hosted MANY there! I ask that you pull or back into this area with the front/back end of your vehicle facing North/South. You may use your slide-outs, awnings, outdoor furniture, and generators. I am usually here to greet you at the top of the drive and help you get situated. (Occasionally, I am not here, but am always available to you via phone/text as you arrive.)
