Cool Loop
Nice secluded area. When you arrive there is a loop that everyone an set up around. The bunk house was very cute and comfortable. There’s an outhouse for bathroom and it has a water tank with drinking water from a well. We were fairly loud and out sound did not travel very far. I would like to come back with a larger group
