Open year-round. Paved runway. No snow removal in winter. If it snows, it’s closed. Grass may be long in all adjacent areas including north end transient parking area. Watch for rough areas off all paved surfaces. Runway lights photocell operated dusk to dawn and can be obscured by tall grass. Northwest corner transient aircraft parking area may be obscured by grass as well and tiedowns are primitive with possible drop off holes. Recommend parking next to tiedown areas and pushing aircraft back into parking spaces. Grass area adjacent to runway 14/32 extremely rough due to mole activity.
