Cons: I got a south facing spot with no shade. When the nearby train goes by, the trailer shakes. Again, no CBS channel on Cable or Air TV. Is it a Ohio thing? Did not monitor quiet hours, loud music going on past 2am!

Worth Noting: I happened to be here during a big Harley Motorcycle Rally. LOUD LOUD LOUD!

Cincinnati/Lebanon KOA

Free WiFi and cable. I chose to go with the air TV choices. Verizon signal was great
