Excellent, 3-4 bars with Verizon, 2 bars on AT&T
Sites are a bit close to each other but due to the layout and trees, they still offer privacy on most sites.
Super quiet during the week. About 1/4th to 1/3rd of the sites are used by long-term residents who seem to be very quiet. Also during the weekend everyone kept the noise down and adhered to the 10pm quiet time. Most sounds we heard throughout our stay came from the crickets and some slight street noise coming from nearby route 340.
Pets are allowed, must be on leash at all times.
Recycling and Eco-friendliness
