    ... in the 50 amp lot which luckily also had a 30 amp plug, phew! [Interesting fact, a lot of the smaller state parks have a self registration where you put money in an envelope and reserve your own spot.] The last hiccup was water....we couldn't find anywhere to fill up, but improvised a bit with a spigot in the field in the middle of the campground to fill our RV.
