          This small motel and campground is a great surprise. The small duplex motel rooms are clean and have a very comfortable porch. There is a fire pit and grill available to use and is a pleasant place to hang out during your stay.

          I think they are, as I saw several people walking their dogs, but they may have been in the RV part. You may want to call the motel and ask them.
          What is the nightly fee? Thank you.

          I would advise you updating the information on tripadvisor to expand your listing to include the motel and rv park separately. It was hard to find you, but a pleasant surprise!
