Can I use a back in spot with my Minnie Winnie? YES! (and no). Of course you can, but if you have "Dive-in" opportunity please reserve a Dive-in location first so more people (and trailers) can enjoy the park.
I have a 26 foot trailer, can we reserve a 60x30 site? YES! (and no). Again, of course, you get to choose your site. Please choose a site that fits your RV/trailer size so others can also enjoy the park.
Is this a Campground or RV Park? YES! BOTH! MMC allows RVs, travel trailers, fifth wheels, car camping & tents at every site.

Does it have Wifi? YES! MMC hired Day PC to WiFi the entire park. Hoyt did an awesome job!
Do you really have over 100 pine tress? YES! Two acres of pine trees. It does make parking difficult but well worth the effort.
