“Everyone at the Salt Lick does an outstanding job.  Sarah and I have hosted Christmas parties at the Salt Lick every year since somewhere about 1996 except for a few years after 2008.  We always have a great time and the team at Crestview RV looks forward all year long to the special time in December at the Salt Lick. Thanks to you and the entire team.”
