A half century trailer nestled in "whispering pines", what my grandparents called their place. It can still act as a base camp for one couple inside and more in tents outside. Electricity lets you use refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, and recharge your camera. Convenient for inclement weather for some cards or banagrams at table for 5 under the lights. Of course usually you will turn off the lights after dinner and be at the campfire. Most campers love the convenience of the refrigerator so they don't have to keep going into town for ice. Basics of ketchup, mustard, relish, sugar, instant drinks provided. The trailer water is only cold but has been tested and can be drunk. I don't as I think it tastes bad so provide potable water for drinking, brushing teeth, and coffee making. it is in yellow igloo. You can come out the door and wander to the right until you run into the well manicured neighbor above then turn right and go up along their property line and start going right near top then right again to come down behind trailer. If you want to hike to Red Bank Creek go left out of drive along road to metal gate on right. Turn onto gate road and follow pink dots. Camping is on eastern edge of property. It gets cooler as you walk west toward the "river" aka Red Bank Creek. Bike or hike on the 50 mile Red Bank Trail starting across from Giant Eagle or start in Summerville. My favorite section there goes over two bridges. Tubing or kayaking is nice on Red Bank Creek, put in off Race Street take out on Moore Road in Summerville. May be too shallow July/August for boats. If you just want to lay in the hammock and read or sit in the shade you can do that too.
