When we were there this past summer we saw that you had a very good start to a beautiful campground. It was very quiet, peaceful and pretty. Have you finished it? If so, great !!! If not, that would be your money maker. However, the entrance needed a little work. (Sorry, you might already have that problem fixed....it was a hole in the road going into the park). When you finish this campground and advertise it...as I said you will have a great money maker. Sorry this isn't any help as to a fund raiser. However, if you need any help with your park. Let us know. We are campers and would be glad to come help you for a few days. Your idea of having bluegrass concerts is a good one.
