Looks like the weather is slated to turn sharply next week. If you have need for water at your campsite, please plan on this week and Saturday (10/28). If the weather holds true, the water will be shutdown as early as Sunday 10/29. Please plan accordingly. I hope you a had a good season.

The water has been turned on. Please enjoy the season and have a Happy Easter.
1. Water Turn-on: The clubhouse bathrooms now have water. We are able to put heat in the clubhouse so small risk of freezing. The weather forecast looks promising for a Sat April 8th turn-on. Will advise if anything changes.
2. Camper water hookup: Each Spring and Fall the health department inspects the campground and notifies us of any violations of the health regulations. One of the items that they check is the use of the proper National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) 61 certified hose connection to each camper. Our understanding of this regulation is that the sunlight can cause an unapproved hose to become a hazard to your health. The NSF 61 hose has been manufactured in a way that does not cause a health issue. The hose as it connects to your camping unit needs to be a NSF 61 hose.
3. Wifi :; All AP units are on line and the height of AP at C7 has been increased for more coverage. I am adding another incoming line to the wifi service effectively doubling the bandwidth. This is expected to be in place by Memorial Day as I need some additional equipment ans setup.
As most know, we try to look at turning the water on in early April weather permitting. We use a simple method to determine. We look at the 10 day forecast an look for no low temperatures under 34 (slightly above freezing) on the low temperature. The ground temperature is not the problem, but rather the risers (pipes coming out of the ground) that can freeze with air temperature in an hour or so. The campgrounds is open as of April 1st but water turn-on date is still TBD. I hope you can all enjoy your sites, with water, as soon as possible.
