Good deal. We‘ve been staying at old mill market cg for years. Not much to see there but has big 3 hookups, walking distance to much of the area, free evening singing at outdoor theater on the "mountain" and the free trolley turns around at the cg.

Good advice- some other advice:

1. Bring more money than you think you'll spend.

2. Wear comfortable walking shoes

3. Bring Tums if you plan on eating some of the many offerings.

4. Think twice about bringing small children and/or pets.

5. See #1.

Last time we went we parked in the parking lot for rvs. Yes it was crowded but so close to walk to pavillion and then go back to eat and rest then go again. My friend had her little scooter since she has lung disease and her husband made a trailer to attach to scooter out of a dolly with a boat seat attached so he could ride with her (bad knees). Then after everything closed down she and i rode around and figured out where things were so the next day we knew just where to go. Very big place need several days and out back from pavillion you could find lots of stuff and cheap plants.

That's a great way to get around there - take a couple of days if you can and don't try to see everything in one day.

Most of the best stuff is away from the pavillions. That's where all the good personal stuff is. Not the commercial junk and every other vendor selling three dollar socks and t-shirts.
