    You didn't list the ants. Last time there we got infested with ants abt 3AM. It took abt a week to kill all of them in the RV. I fussed a BUNCH to TPW about not letting campers know there was a problem. I had everything to avoid the issue if I had just known. Still not real happy.

    On a happier note we're not but abt 30 mi from you. How long you going to be there???

      I have not had ants at the host site (yet) this summer. I myself have not gotten ant complaints either. I will be here until the end of August, I am working inside this summer which is way better than outside when its 100 plus. I will ask around the office when I go back in Tuesday.

          Ended my summer stay at the park. Ants did not return. Park did some friendly spraying in sites they were reported in. Have not heard any more since. I could now write a fun book on questions you get asked in the park. Examples: Are there fish in the park? ( I was bad on this answer said they were in the lake around the park)Does a campsite with water and electric come with enough water for a weekend? There were more

                Finished my second summer as a host at the park. The ants seem to be gone, we still advise forks to watch when asked. Entire summer had the new reserve ;system in place, and two things about it. For this park it seems to work well, no guests staying in other people reserved campsites. Item Two ….certain sites, despite upfront cost are reserved every Friday and Saturday all summer and some into the fall. However, most weekends not near a holiday have a few spots open as late as Friday morning.
