We stayed here at the campground. Beautiful campground, but get here early if you want a good RV site. They fill up fast. Not site specific yet. Great historical area. Enjoyed the canon firing and touring the grounds. The cabins look wonderful.

As long as you are not in am or pm school zone or rush hour traffic, it will take about 45 minutes. During rush hour, add up to 30 minutes. Well worth the drive!!
