Am I reading this right? At this campground the hookups are at stations rather than in each campsite? That would mean we might have to have long cords/hoses/stinky slinkies to reach (in some cases even to the curb side depending on the camp spot)?

Toby, we've stayed at the campground in Amana, and things are not as dire as I think you might be imagining.

If you look at the map, and look at sites 1-4, for example, there's a pedestal island with water and electric for the four sites. Sites 2 and 3 will have the pedestal in the "normal" position near the left rear corner. Sites 1 and 4 will have them at the right rear corner, as we did when we were there.

We ran the electric cord and hose behind our rear wheels and under the mud flap and had plenty to spare. Since your electric cord is probably 25 feet long, and a single hose is typically that long as well, you should not have any problem. I don't recall having to do that with the sewer hose, but again, two 10-foot hoses would do the trick if the sewer hookup is in that spot as well.

OK Thanks! I just want to be prepared is all. I can't remember if I even paid for sewer so maybe that won't even matter.

This was a similar situation in the "ELITE" 400 section at the Goshen F.R.O.G rally and wasn't an issue.
My sewer hose was a tad short but what better place to have a short hose than to have 300 + campers around ...... hmmmm what to do?
Aquaman's hose was "really" short so we all pitched in and got him handled.

You'll be fine!

I have a similar story but I'll share a video. I just don't have it handy right now. I'll follow up later.

It was odd why he insisted on holding his hose all the time?
