Jay and Denny Patterson
Jumper and Meeko

March 29, 2014

Denny, Meeko, Jumper and I just arrived back home last night. It's nice to be home but we do have some work to do!! We will be cleaning and painting and planting grass and taking reservations and maybe get a little sleep in. My first job is the office and I have it turned upside down. When we bought the park last year, I didn't really have a chance to clean out drawers and get organized, so now is my chance. The season is looking great. Still would like a couple of big snows so we wouldn't have to worry about water, but there is still time. We hope to have our 2 new 50 amp sites finished up by May 1. We also plan on having the 2 little campers in a permanent space so Denny won't have to move them all around the park. We will have a dog walker available so if you want to spend the day out and about, we'll have someone keep an eye on your pets and take them for a walk. Just a reminder that the train will not be picking up passengers in La Veta this summer. You will have to drive to Alamosa to get on the train for concerts or for the ride. I have called the company several times and they will not call me back. We are taking reservations: 719-742-3323.  We have raised the daily and weekly prices just a little bit. We rounded them off so we wouldn't have those crazy amounts. Our prices include all taxes. That's it for now. See you all soon. I've added some more events for the summer.
