park review stars; one to five This park used to offer a variety of activities. Not so now. If i want to camp out there are other parks that actually offer something to do. Not worth the time or effort.
April 19 the park ranger was rude and hateful by [email protected]
park review stars; one to five We paid for one night and then decided to stay 2 more so I went back to the office and paid for it. The park ranger stopped the next day and insisted that I did not pay and told me to get out. I told him I would find my receipt and show him, but he went to the office to prove me wrong. Of course he never came back because I HAD PAID. I told the park host that I did not appreciate being called a liar and I did not appreciate his attitude
