He is correct about the lack of showering/pool facilities, however there is
a "Y" just around the corner from the Macmillan Woods campground. I think
we paid $1 per person to shower at the Y.
My final point (unless there are other questions, either publicly or on the
list) is that we plan a 4 - 5 day summer trip each year and reimburse
drivers for tolls/gasoline. The cost for our trips (including any
patches/medals) has been $60.00 per person (including adults) for more than
five years. It is becoming more and more of a bargain!
