If there is Wi-Fi, it didn't appear on any of our devices. Campground is nothing more than a dirt facility. There are trees but no grass that we saw. The man who checked us in didn't seem to know much about the area. The name Lake Isabela/Kern River is nothing more than a disguise. The lake is about 10 miles to the north and we don't know where the river is located. Suggest you look somewhere else to camp is you really need to be in this area. We would not camp here again.

This campground is living in the past. Most of the sites are occupied by seasonal campers. The remaining sites are very close together. In fact, the site we were assigned was so close to one neighbor that to walk around our Class C we had to walk on their site. Our site was level but we could not extend our awning because the camper on the other side of us had a slide out. This seemed to be the norm here. The park manager and his wife certainly do not know how to run a cg. In fact, I'm not sure if they even care about their campers based on our experiences with them. Propane is available only three days a week and only for an hour at a time. To me this is an indicator of how little they are interested in meeting the needs of their campers. We had an electrical problem and they weren't concerned about it. The maintenance man solved our problem for the most part. The manager didn't even know what was going on with the two boxes in our site --- he was totally out in left field. Making matters worse, he said that previous occupants had the same complaints. FYI: they do not sell ice and offer very few supplies. There is no security even though the cg has three gates that allow access from the frontage road and a side road. When we booked our site we knew we would have to move after three days. We were assigned site 109. Sites 102 - 111 are along a fence that is fairly close to I-90 with increased road noise versus other sites in the park. More importantly, roots from the tree line, or what is left of it, protrude at least a foot above the ground in these sites. This makes it difficult to walk around in these sites and the ground is very wet. This problem could be easily be remedied with placement of gravel in these areas. This is just another indicator of how management is not fulfilling its responsibilities to campers. On a positive note, the bathrooms were clean. Without a doubt, I strongly recommend that you seek a campsite elsewhere when visiting the Seattle area. We would not stay at this cg if ever in Seattle again.

Park not very big but no escort to site. Wi-Fi was very good. Stayed here once in the past and liked the place. Different owner now. Sites and roads around park were very muddy and had lots of ruts. Ownership needs to bring in many loads of gravel to correct this problem and enhance the individual sites. Many, many flies so get your bug spray ready when you arrive. Don't think we would stay here if ever in the area again.

Site was not level --- when are campground owners realize that their patrons want level sites? No cable. Wi-Fi was very weak --- kept kicking us off. Wouldn't stay here again. The lady in the office who checked us in was very nice, though.

The lady in the office is one of the rudest individuals I have ever met. When we got lost and called the office, she said trust me I know what I'm talking about. When we arrived she was equally rude. We were assigned site F1 which was at the back of the cg with no trees. There was no way a camper can get level in this site. The connections were far apart so one cannot move around in the site seeking a level place. We went back to the office and asked for another site; she said she couldn't move us. We demanded our money back and went elsewhere. As we left she was still saying that no one else had complained - don't know about that. If you are seeking a one night stay, I suggest you look elsewhere unless you like to deal with rude people.

This cg needs the attention of management as it I need of repair and upgrading. Sites are not level and gravel as are all the roads. Water pipe was leaking when we arrived and the TV cable was lying on the ground. WIFI was weak and kept kicking us off which was quite frustrating. If you are traveling north or south on I-75 you might want to skip this cg as it is about 10 miles off the road. We would not return here if in the area again.

Sites 23 through 34 appear to have been neglected. They are nowhere near level, part of the road is very rough, grass is growing in the sites, and there is virtually no light at night in that section. There is no shade in most of the sights in the campground so basically overall it is a parking lot. The pole to hang trash on is an excellent idea. The office staff encountered was friendly. As far as we could see there is no security in the campground. We likely would not stay in this campground when in the area.

We did not find the office staff to be friendly --- a smile now and then is not too much to ask for. Campground appears to have some security with gate at entrance. Looks like a large portion of the full hookup sites are occupied by seasonal campers. All looked to be in good shape and well maintained. Roads are a little rough here and there. A fair amount of work needs to be done to get the full hookup sites in level condition. We stayed here during the week so cannot comment on weekend activities. Showers and restrooms were clean although we did not use them. Both were limited in the actual camping area but more were available at the office which is a fair walk from the campsites --- can’t understand the reasoning behind this situation. Our biggest concern was the availability of water at the full hookup sites. The faucets are at ground level or below; hence dirt has to be removed to turn them on and off. We have never experienced this in over thirty years of camping. This is most inconvenient for older campers and deserves immediate ownership attention. This campground is quite a jaunt off of I-79 through some inner town streets and traffic. The WIFI was very slow most of the time.

When we went to our site there were gobs of dog hair on the ground. It appeared that the previous camper had combed or sheared his/her dog before departing. Is this the fault of the campground staff, obviously no? However, a site should be checked before it is assigned to the next occupant. We, of course, went back to the office and were assigned the adjacent site. There was no way we could get level in that site. Off we go to the office once again to obtain an acceptable site. We were assigned a site in Section A which was very nice. We were charged $66 per night --- for that price we should have been given a premium site from the beginning. We were told that the $66 entitled us a site in the A section so why would we be assigned a site in Section B. We surmised that it was because of the length of our rig which is 29 feet. This is not a fair or reasonable way to assign a site or charge a fee. According to the owners, who toot their own horns quite a bit, say they have upgraded this campground over the past ten years, which seems to be the case, but more attention is needed to the sites in Section B. Another unusual thing occurred upon check-in. We were given arm bands to wear while in the campground. The purpose was for "security". We are older folk and have been camping for over thirty years and have never encountered this before. If management is worried about someone coming into the campground that is not a camper or guest, then put up a gate and control traffic by manning the entrance. There is no way I would ever wear an armband in a campground. If that meant that I couldn't camp there then, so be it. Oh, by the way if you lose the armband it will cost you $4 to get another one. Crazy eh??? Yes, this possibly could be a very enjoyable campground to stay at, but management needs to tweak a few policies and situations to make it a "resort".

It took us forever to get to this campground from I-91 and when we left it took us about 25 minutes to get back to I-91. That aside, the campground was nice and very well maintained. We were near the office in a back-in site which required a little leveling but no major issue. We like the gravel sites and the grass between each site. It looks like there are ample things for the kiddies to do here. The staff was very nice, although a little bit disorganized during check-in. We could see ourselves staying here again if ever in the area again.

When we made our reservation we were told that we would have a full hookup site along with WI-FI. This turned out not to be the case - to get full hookup service you are assigned a site amongst the treed area of the campground. You have to go to the office area to get WI-FI which will not even work at the campsites in that area. Furthermore, there are no full hookup sites near where the WI-FI will/might work. This is pretty much an overnight campground if that. The roads are narrow and dusty. A big rig/fiver would find it very difficult the maneuver around in the full hookup area. There is no cable. We didn’t determine what was available for entertainment, but did see an above ground swimming pool on our way to our site. As we felt that we had been misinformed when we made our reservation, we decided to relocate after staying one night. We cannot in all good conscience recommend this campground.

We made our reservations 13 days in advance. When we checked in and after paying for our stay, the staffer told us that they didn’t have a 30 amp site available when we made our reservation so we would have to take a 50 amp site and deposit $50 for the 50-to-30 amp adapter that would allow us to have power. The individual who took our reservation made no mention of this fact to us. We should been given an option to accept this or not. The office does not open until 9 AM, which will likely delay a camper's departure if they had to obtain the adapter. Moving campers seems to be the norm for this campground. Two campers we talked to said they had to move THREE times in their relatively short stays. We noticed many others moving also. Staffers encountered were not friendly, except for one of the fellows who work outside. One drove through our campsite saying that he was taking a shortcut and laughed about it. Sites in the E section are adjacent to the dump station which emits a foul odor when waste is dumped. The smell permeates the area as well as recreational vehicles, which is totally unacceptable. The Wi-Fi is slow and spotty. No escort is provided to the sites. No propane --- the staffer told us that the closest place to obtain propane was 30 minutes away. She did not offer the name of the business. No fishing bait --- the campground is located next to a river. We asked the owner about bait, the only comment he offered was “no unfortunately” and kept on walking. Grass around campsites and throughout the campground was not trimmed. Some grass was as high as two feet. Roads had many potholes --- some were filled about halfway into our stay. The road and sites throughout the campground need maintenance in some form or another. In light of the present conditions and operational procedures, we would not camp here again and recommend that others look elsewhere as well.

This is the last time I will stay in a large campground. Clearly the size of this campground had surpassed management. A fellow in the office told me that if I didn't like the site, then come back and he would give us a super site. This later led me to believe he knew this was an inferior site. The site (F-7) that we were assigned was far too small for our 28 foot class C and there was no way were were going to get level. We complained and were assigned site 270 which was certainly not level by any means. The sewage was uphill from our motorhome and you know what does not flow uphill. The campground roads are not marked at all. I got lost and needed the help of a worker to find my way back to the office. In summary, while other folk may find things to do here, my main interest is my campsite. Campground management did not fulfill my expectations at all in this area. I will not return to this campground. One of the major things lacking is that no one takes you to your site.

Rate is KOA Value Card rate. Seems although there is a lot to do at this campground. We were assigned a site in the T section --- no shade at all and grassy site which is likely to be soggy or muddy when it rains. Office staff was nice. Security looks to be great. Difficult to get to when traveling north on I-81 unless you connect with I-90 and then take Route 22 which is a two lane road into Copake. Facility offers themed weekends which seems to go over well with campers.

Campground is very difficult to reach. Office staff was so, so friendly. Lots of rules. Site was level. Rate was high even with KOA discount for what was available. Looked to be mostly seasonals which occupied the shady sites. Would not consider this campground to be one that I would stop at in the future. It is not close to major highways so you might just want to pass this one up if it's not your destination.

Very nice campground. The lady in office is very friendly and helpful. Well stocked store for RV parts. Sites are nice. Ours had a parking pad and a pad for the picnic table. Both were level. Wi-Fi and cable worked fine. Would recommend this park and certainly would stay here again. A great place to eat is Ralph & Kacoo's in Bossier City Exit 20 off I-10. Easy to get to.

This is a great campground. The three staffers we encountered were great. Shade trees galore which were welcome as we had stayed in several gravel parking lots during our trip. Convenient to a lot of shopping, DFW airport, the Cowboys and Rangers Stadiums and I-20. Ft Worth Stockyards is a fair jaunt but worth the trip. Our site [110] was level and very shady. Wi-Fi and cable worked fine while we were there. If you need a campground while in or passing through Arlington, then this is the place to stay. It surely is.

Agree with the other comments about the dirt road off the frontage road. The staffers we met were great. This CG has a number of problems. First off, the power system is antiquated and obsolete. We had problems with our a/c circuit breaker tripping, as had others in the recent past. The system cannot handle the RVs of today. We were fortunate to get a shaded site: nearly all are still filled with extended stay campers. The other section has no shade at all. Getting one of those sites is chancy due to the poor power grid. From what we were told, the owner lives in Dallas, hundreds of miles away, which in our minds is a problem. We would not stay in this campground again. Suggest you avoid it if at all possible.

We prefer to stay in KOA campgrounds. This is probably the worst one we have stayed in in over twenty years of camping. Weeds are growing between the sites, sites are not level, and the women in the office are very loud which does not portray a business like atmosphere. Far too much joking around at the campers expense. I could not get our cable TV to work, so I called the office and was told that the campground had been converted to HDTV. As our TV was older we needed a box that they had there. I asked if they could deliver it and was assured that they would. An hour later, no box so I called to cancel my request. THERE WAS NO MENTION OF THIS ISSUE WHEN WE CHECKED IN. The owners of this campground need to get involved in its management. If they are on-site, then they need to take a course on how to run a good campground, because they aren't doing so now. We would not recommend this campground to anyone. Glad we only booked one night.

When we checked in we were assigned site F-6. This is not a good site as tree limbs were hitting our motor home and there was not enough room to extend our awning. This site is way out of level. The staff did move us to a roomier and more level site. The staffer in the office guided us to downtown Santa Fe. FYI, there is an RV parking lot on Alameda Street: see map provided by campground. We would stay here again only if we were given a decent site.

I agree with the previous commentary. The folk here are great. The only drawback is that there is not much shade in the park. If you plan to stay here in the next two or three months, then I suggest you ask for a site that is not in the twenties, as several of these sites are occupied by construction workers and they like to party, especially on the weekends. We would stay here again.

Totally agree with the two previous reviews. This is nothing but a parking lot that is not well kept. Shade trees are non-existent. We had just pulled in and were second in line to check-in and this staffer asks for our name and then said to follow him. Never had this happen before. After he got us to our site, he said we had until 5 PM to finish our paperwork and settle up. This was not only an inconvenience but difficult for me as I am disabled. I expressed my displeasure with the staff but doubt things will change. Another downside is that the office closes at 6 PM. Most stay open until 8 or 9. This is not a typical KOA and we would not stay here again.

Level pull through sites. WiFi was slow but the cable was fine. We found the office person curt and quite unpleasant. We had to hose off the bird droppings, which covered our picnic table, before we could even put our grill on it. It was so nasty that we chose to eat inside our motorhome. Management should assure that all tables are clean before sites are assigned. Our table has not seen a coat of paint for many years. Many other tables were found to be in the same condition: nasty and in need of repair. We would not camp here again in spite of the positives: negative outweighed them.

I agree with the other comments but have a few of my own. The rate is with the 10% military and 5% Good Sam discounts. There isn't a great deal of shade. Sites are fairly level. No cable TV. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO HEAR THE NOISE FROM THE NEARBY DIRT TRACK ON SUNDAY NIGHT, THEN DON'T CAMP HERE. Don't know about the other days of the week.

This campground did not meet our expectations of a KOA, especially at the $39.49 KOA Value Kard rate. NO CABLE. Brochure indicated that we should take our trash to the dumpster. First KOA I have ever seen require such. Staff was not all that friendly. Site was not level at all. If we ever visit Minneapolis again we will seek another campground at which to stay.

No cable. Site was fairly level. WiFi was iffy. We didn't see anything for little ones to do - no pool or other activities. Office was not open until 3PM but occupants of fifth wheel across from the office will get you settled. We would probably look elsewhere to camp if we were in the area again.

Very friendly staff. Site was level. No cable. WiFi was iffy and difficult to use. Lake was nice - obviously there are no fish in it as I didn't catch any. Probably not a place for families with little ones as not much for them to do here. Would use as a stop over. Also is one has friends in the area, then it would be a nice place to set up for a short while.

We paid $37 with the KOA Value Card and were assigned site 35. Site had asphalt with was nearly level: we had to do a little adjusting. A lot of pull-through sites which is nice. Wi-Fi and cable TV worked well. We didn't venture out and stayed only one night so can't comment on all of the amenities. Ladies in office were nice and friendly. Road into campground is steep and narrow: one way in and one way out. We would stay here again if visiting the area.

Rate is KOA Value Card Rate. This campground in my opinion does not measure up to the standards of KOAs we have stayed in before. Sites are all gravel as are the roads which have some potholes. We stayed in E24, this site was not level. This campground is in dire need of maintenance and updating. NO cable and Wi-Fi is very spotty. Campground is divided by a small creek. It is best not to stay in the section close to the office as there is very little shade. The other section does have shade. There is a RV sales and service facility next door for supplies and services if needed. The price we paid even with the 10% discount far exceeds the price that should be charged: this is probably a $30 - $35 campground.

We have been camping here for many years, even before the current owners purchased the CG. While there are many things to do here and in the surrounding area, there are some drawbacks. The sites in section A and B are VERY close to one another. If you camp here you will hear the train horn which some say it is part of the ambiance while others think it is a distraction. A few of the staff are friendly while others are quite unpleasant. Several of the men that take you to your site are some of the grumpiest around. They NEVER smile and act like it is a burden for them to help you. My thought is that if they don't enjoy their work then they should go somewhere else.

Wi-Fi is very slow in this park. Assigned site 88 which was very unlevel, as was site 89. Only stayed one night so maybe that is why we were assigned a bad site. However, we did notice that a number of other sites adjacent to ours required substantial leveling. There is a minimum of distance between sites and they are by and large quite narrow. Campground is hilly, but 'fivers and smaller RV's can navigate the hills. Large motorhomes likely to have a problem with some of the sites and curves. Some of the sites have little decks which were nice. Nice pool and game room. All in all, we would not return unless we couldn't find another campground nearby.

Nice campground. Friendly and accommodating staff. Kept us informed of traffic problems on I-81. Unusual for any campground. Thanks. Looks as though road problems have been fixed. Suggest you not camp around the dump station in sites A, B, C, and those in the low fifties. Nasty smell when campers use the dump station. Can't extend awning in site B. Nnot a problem for us as we only stayed one night. Would return to this campground.

This CG is a fair jaunt from I-68 exit 15. Big rigs need to be careful as the road is narrow leading to the CG. If you are looking for an unfriendly staff, this is the place to camp. There are many signs of a blunt and directive nature which do not portray a friendly atmosphere. You need to get a code for the Wi-Fi from the office -- the staffer didn't give us one at check-in so we had to go back and get it. The roads are gravel and rough. Sites are gravel and NOT level. Nice pool. Another camper told us that you have to pay to use the showers, hadn't seen that since 1980. If you must, use it for one night but not as a destination CG.

THE ENTRANCE TO THE CG IS BESIDE THE KFC ON RTE 4 which runs along side of I-79 at exit 67. This CG is atypical of a KOA -- no staff or office situated on the CG. It sits behind the Days Hotel, where you register. It is a very nice cg with an immaculate bath house. No shows scheduled at the amphitheater this summer according to a staffer. Roads are paved, sites are gravel with concrete pads for table. Not too much going on at the nearby outlet mall. Enjoyed the quaint little town of Sutton about four miles west on Rte 4 and the dam there. Also enjoyed nearby Holly Gray park -- ask at hotel for directions. Would return for a couple of days.

This campground is in dire need of new management or at least management that is involved in its appearance and operation. The staffer on duty was not interested in anything except watching TV in the office. The short road from the office to the sites is TERRIBLE as is the road in the cg. Definitely no big rigs here or smaller ones that are towing a toad. Assigned site 2, cable didn't work. After the 3rd trip to the office the staffer finally came to our site and determined that the cg's cable connection was faulty. Later we saw that the cable to sites 1 and 2 was run on top of the ground through site 3,ours had become disconnected. Do not recommend this cg. Good alternative appears to be Pipestem State Park.

Friendly and accommodating staff. Our site was VERY unlevel. Could not get our rig level even with blocks. Nicely maintained CG. Thought it a little pricey $38 for two people plus $12 for a third person. Probably wouldn't have been so unacceptable if there was cable TV and the sites were level. Probably won't be in the area again but likely would stay here for a day or two.

This is a BASIC campground suitable for only an overnight stay. We made the mistake of paying for multiple nights thinking we were going to have activities to enjoy. There is no pool, sporadic WiFi, no recreation other than Bluegrass, Gospel, and Country music. Shows are not usually available during day and not on every night. A lot of sites are not level and TV reception is fuzzy at times. No shade by and large throughout this campground. This is not a destination, and probably won't be around long as the adjacent entertainment center seems to be on the downward slope. Give it five years at most, unless vast changes are made to the show schedule. There was one good point about staying here: it is close to Berea Old Town which is a nice place to visit for arts and crafts. Would not return to this campground.

Pleasant folk in the office and very helpful. Would not consider this a destination campground based on others we have visited. Sites do not appear to be level, ours certainly was not. No trash pickup. The pond was very small, glad I didn't bring any bait. Pool was closed due to time of year.

This is an old campground that appears to have recently obtained KOA certification. We were left to find our site by ourselves which is not consistent with KOA campgrounds that we have visited before. The roads are gravel with potholes throughout and very dusty. Speed bumps are hidden with gravel buildup which could damage one’s rig. Sites along one side of the lake actually sit in the road which makes it difficult to maneuver in that area, especially in a larger rig. The lake is overrun with algae and weeds. Sites along the lake are nice but there are a lot of flies and ants. We had to hang our trash outside after experiencing ants in our rig. We asked a staff member if they had anything to eradicate them. He said he would get back with us but never did. Pull through sites by the office have no shade. You are allowed one free hour a day of Wi-Fi service but you have to go to the office and get a user name and password. They offer a daily plan for $2.00 per day but don’t bother as the Wi-Fi does not work. This could be a great campground with modern upgrades.

The draw of this campground is its proximity to local attractions and Boone. All the roads and sites are gravel. The sites are narrow and not level. Most of the timbers marking the sites are rotten and clearly detract from the overall appearance. The lower bath house is dirty and in dire need of an upgrade. Office staff is so so friendly. This campground does not receive the attention needed for it to be a good facility. There is no pool or other activities for children. The owners need to find a buyer who has the money to bring the campground up to modern standards and someone who has the expertise in managing an acceptable facility.

Alright for an overnight stay. No scenery. Seems as though campground caters to a lot of seasonals. Site was level with a concrete pad. Very friendly folks in the office. Discount for active and retired military. Didn't venture out in area due to being tired from trip so we don't know what area is like. Suggest you not get a site next to the fence due to barking dogs.

Mapquest directions to this campground are wrong. A very busy place due to it being on Lake Martin. A fair number of seasonals it appeared. Potential for boat noise if site is along water.

Cg in east side of park. Staff was very friendly and helpful. All sites were back-in and somewhat close together if you are towing. Sites were level.No picnic tables so bring a table along to cook on. Many restrictions [understandably] due to wildlife roaming through cg. Convenient to various attractions. Store, fuel, propane, and minor repairs available within 1/4 mile of cg. Camped here in motorhome and would definitely do so again. Bring your bug spray as the mosquitos are big enough to carry anyone weighing less that 100 pounds away.

Original plan was to stay at local KOA. As retired military I liked this place even though just stayed one night. Active duty military stay free according to road sign. Nice friendly staff. Sites were level. If you are there on a night when they serve food be sure to treat yourself and partake. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced. Would stop again if in area.

Downsides: all sites on asphalt, only a few sites have shade and at an increased cost. The advertised shuttle, which is sorely needed due to size of park doesn't run continuously. Positives: close to Las Vegas strip, rental cars available through cg office, very reasonable RV washing available. We encountered one couple in the office, that were extremely helpful. Not all of the staff were as pleasant. They were most accommodating. We recommend management develop some sort of shading for the sites as awning use was impractical due to high winds. No picnic tables available. It has some negatives, but we would probably stay here again.

CG is convenient to Rapid City/Hill City attractions. The sites are level. Problems exist with the management of this cg. When making reservations we were not told that only the premium sites had cable tv. The premium sites are nice but not worth the increased rate of $11. Some of the staff were rude and possessed no people skill. I'm 65 years old and didn't know I was a "dude" until told so by one of the staff members. The road in the park was horrible. Deep ruts were everywhere which made traveling around difficult. If one can find another cg in the area then I suggest you go there. The company that owns this cg also owns the Capitol City KOA and the KOA in Harpers Ferry WV. We've stayed at those cgs and they are not much better than this one.

CG has many amenities but sites close to lake are very narrow and close to each other. They are also difficult to get in and out of. The owners have cleaned this campground up but have gone over board with rules. Seinfield had his "soup nazi" and High Rock Lake CG has its "campground nazis." Break a simple rule and you are chastised to the ultimate. The owners have no people skills at all. There is rarely a smile and one can readily experience their indifference to infrequent customers. Unless the owners change their attitudes, loosen rules, and develop people skills, this cg is headed for rough times and/or sale. We will not be returning due to the treatment recently received from the male owner. There are other cgs in NC that offer as much or more.

Old cg that is not maintained well at all. Camped in Class C along stream. Power kept going off - staff said it was because campers with big rigs were running their a/cs. This was unacceptable - owners should upgrade electrical lines to accommodate modern day campers. Staff said corrective action would not be taken as the power only goes off about three times a year. This is especialy bad if campers go off and leave pets in their rigs, as several of us did. As we were packing up to depart, another camper turned the water off and the whole faucet came off shooting water up in the air. Another example of poor maintenance. Recommend you pass this one up if you are in the Boone area.

Like this place. Sites are level but some are a little short especially if you're towing. Fishing pond and river behind campground which is good for fishing and tubing. Rental tubes available at office. A little tough to get to from I-81. Road is somewhat narrow but we saw Class As there. We were in a Class C. Lots of wild rabbits and ducks for the kiddies to look at. Good location to visit the attractions around Staunton.

Nice campground. We were told it had only been open two years. Still some way to go to be a top notch facility, but certainly recommend it. It looked like there were plenty of activities for children. Very good place to stay if visiting Hershey and the other local attractions. Nice restaurant on grounds. Friendly staff and very helpful.

Very nice campground. Security is great and staff is very helful. One of the few campgrounds in the area that accepts pets. A little pricey but you're on Cape Cod. Sites are well maintained. Didn't use many of the facilities as we traveled extensively while in there. Would return and recommend it for a vacation. Very good campground for the young and old alike. A lot of seasonals but wasn't a problem. Stayed in site 30 and site 53.
