Report: We were disappointed with all the websites saying there was running water and a playground. We had to go back to nearest town and get water. We had other toys for our 3 year old anyway. The Women's side of the outhouse had wasp nest inside and out so was unusable. On the upside, we were the only campers there, but people kept driving in and turning around at the end and driving back out all day and once at night.
