This year we have completed major electrical upgrades to our trailer park. We have been fully upgraded to 30 amp, allowing air conditioners to be run in the hot July sun. 

If you are just needing 110, you will need to bring an adapter, please see the picture to the right, so you will know what type of adapter needed. I hope this will help everyone out before they arrive, and not run into complications when hooking up.

from 9 am to 5 pm. Also at the Bridgewater Legion daily, during open hours. Draws will take place on each
