Lodging in the area

In this area there are not a lot of places to stay that are closer than 50 miles from here. Unless you have camping equipment, reservations are certainly recommended!

Right now 557 and 558 prefixes are having phone problems. If you try a number and get a message that it's been disconnected, try again. Or try from your cell phone. Valley Telephone Co-op says it's something happening in one of the feeder systems, not in theirs. If you have any problems, tell your carrier.
