  1. cynthia miller says:

    There are no fire rings at the camppsites… only a small group firepit for the entire campground

  2. I am brand new to camping. Please be easy on me. Can I bring my above-the-ground fire holder, since the camp sites don’t have their own fire pit built in? Second: Can I hook up to the 30-amp service, even if my camper is only 110 volts? I have the thick wire and attachments, so I know I can physically do it, but will it work? Thank you.

    • Hi Eric,
      Welcome to the world of camping! Very excited for you and your camping adventures ahead. You can have a fire in a portable/self-contained fire holder (bring your own). There’s also a small group fire pit you can use (and meet your fellow camping neighbors). And yes – you can hookup to 30-amp service at your campsite. Have a great time!
