Our scary RV day


We’re on our way from Glacier NP to the West Coast and found an RV park along the way that was highly rated.  There was a warning, “steep downhill grade with switchbacks” entry into the park, but I called the owner and he said no problem, we have big trucks coming here all the time.  So off we went.

Once we got to the entry road, we unhooked our car, as suggested.  Then we started down the hill.  What we didn’t know is that the road was narrow, gravel, had deep ditches, and yes, it was steep.  Then we hit the first switchback.  It needed a “K” turn to get around and we still drug our rear wheels through the ditch .  Three more, and we were down.

Yes, this is a nice park, if you have kids and a small camper.  Once we got in our site we found no phone, no internet, and only 30A power.  Not good!  We were scheduled to stay here 4 nights but we left the next day.  Romola and I were both apprehensive but with some heavy duty “K” turns, we made it back up to the main road.  Won’t do that again!
