    There were pics and info a couple months ago about the replacement of the coquina with gravel in the 1600 loop. Has anyone seen the work expanding to the other full hookup loops ? 1700,1800,1900 ?

    Yes all the full hook up loops in the clover leaf (1600,1700,1800,1900) have been completed, well actually they are finishing the 1900 loop this week.

    I personally prefer the coquina. Not too sure if the CM’s are leveling out the gravel when they come around and prep for the next camper or not, but I had to level out our site from some tire ruts. That and walking around in the tent pushed the gravel into little piles. :sad2: It was better though ‘cause it wasn’t get tracked into the tent.

    I just rode through this afternoon. 1900 is closed. Looking in, the sites I could see still had coquina. There was also one stray site in 1800, I think, that had coquina.

    The new black pea gravel did seem to be raked in the sites i noticed. Not sure how easy or hard it is to level compared to the old stuff.

    I’m thinking that even though the sand (crushed shell) is a little messy (especially while tent camping) I already know I’m going to miss that coquina.

    I dont think I will miss it, any moisture and it got tracked everywhere. Most of the sites could also benefit from some timber border repair. I am glad to see this happening, makes me look forward to the 1700 loop even more.
