Post Electrical Hookups in Park
If you are planning on camping on a site that has water and electric hookups, you should be aware of the power supply at the site. You CAN NOT plug a standard 120 volt plug into the electrical hookup.

These sites have a 30 amp 120 volt receptacle. It is a bigger outlet, like the size of a electric clothes dryer. RV’s and campers are usually outfitted to fit, but if you are camping on these sites without an RV you need to get a 30 amp 120 volt male to 15 amp 120 volt female adapter.

Another consideration is if you are camping in the Loop section of the park with an RV. I believe that the electrical hookup there is 50 amps. If your RV has a 30 amp hookup and you camp at a spot that has 50 amp service you will need a 50 amp male to 30 amp female adapter.

Also if your RV has a 50 amp hookup and you are camping at a site that has 30 amp service, you will need a 30 amp male to 50 amp female adapter.

Are you sure about that? I've never been to this campground, but every one I have been to has a standard dual outlet in addition to the RV hookup. They're not always in the same location. The standrd plug may be lower on the stake and on the side or something. Not calling you a liar, but can anyone confirm this?

I am pretty sure about the hookups. I rented an RV spot in 07 and I don't remember seeing a regular 110v outlet. I had to plug the 30 amp cord from the camper into the large 30 amp outlet. I used the outlets on the camper for my stuff.

The park's website does not have a page explaining this. I will call them on Monday to be sure.

I wouldn't depend on that though. It is a good store. They have plenty of ice!!! Also they are not gouging you there. I find everything to be reasonably priced considering what they could charge.

I seem to remember being able to plug straight in with a regular cord in the sites with power and water back by the stables. Maybe the RV designated sites are different.

I called the park and I didn't get a clear answer. They said some sites have an 110v outlet but most don't. There is no way to know if your site has 110V.

She said they sell the adapters at the park though.
