    Might as well tear it down !!!!
    I’ve checked it doesnt even include the parking lot or access road, even the septic tank…..They are owned by someone else !!!
    The only customer base is the rental houses/locals !
    What little profit if any thats made will be swallowed up by upkeep and I’m sure the owners of the parking lot will what a lease drawn up too.
    And I’m betting insurance will be on the head of the new operators !
    Its plain to see that if it was turning a decent profit the park service wouldnt be so quick of putting the burden on someone else.
