Ah, this was a different experience for us. We've been to many famcamps and this was not our usual expected experience. We tried to make reservations but no one would call us back. We drove up to the gate and the gaurd told us we had to go somewhere else. He explained the lodging office was closed and they wouldn't allow anyone to stay the night and settle up in the morning. The town has an ordinance prohibiting over night parking so we went on to Stephens Park. Thank God they had a spot. They were full but after explaining to them, they put us in one of there host sites. The following morning we drove over to Rilea lodoing to see if we could get in. They said they call everyone who leaves messages. No, not all calls. I got a call the afternoon we checked in. So it was back to Stephen park to move the rv for one night. We thought it was a good price and since it took up part of our day we'd stay 2 more nights. That didn't happen. They told us someone was due in our spot the next day. So this wasn't a good experience for us. Definally didn't feel welcome here. Call and if you're passing through get there before lodging closes. They close earlier than other bases. I think it was 4pm or 4:30pm. They do have beautuful old structures, neat grounds.
