  1. It has been – No water. Access to bathrooms/porta potties. And limited electric to be shared by some campers.

  2. There is no “campground” just random camping around the circle drive on the level, mowed grass field west of the buildings. Last year The Gilmore left the restrooms in the gas station unlocked overnight. There is a water tap for filling jugs on the outside wall of the gas station. The museum provides a generous number of trash receptacles.
    For electric there is a 4ftx4ft plywood board with a bunch of random, old 15A receptacles mounted on it, many of them upside down/sideways. Only the few 4-5 campers nearest the board, early bird gets a plug in, are close enough to use it or have to bring multiple long extension cords to do so. The main breaker for this mess was faulty the one time we plugged in to it [not during an event, we were camping solo.] We doubt it would pass an electrical inspection, don’t trust it and we now have 400w of solar. Many of the folks who come to this event have a camper with no amenities so don’t need a plug in or bring a quiet generator or portable solar panels, etc.
