Most sites are level, but there are a few that could be a challenge. Every site has a relatively large grassy lawn, picnic table, and fire ring. This is completely dry campground. Water was not available at the time this review was written. Internet was a bit of a challenge. We were able to get 4 bars of AT&T voice, but no data. On Verizon, our standard reception was ranging between 1 bar of 1x to 2 bars of 3G, also with no data. Once we hooked up our range extender though, we were able to get a solid 2 bars of Verizon LTE and data that was fast enough to stream movies with little to no lag.
