    Page 5B of the July 30, 2018 issue of USA Today reports that "Tesla is installing electric car chargers at First Landing State Park". Can anyone local to the area verify the address and number of chargers and type.

    Thanks

    I've charged there in the past, its a campground which also has 50 amp service at most of the pedestal chargers for RV's, it also has cabins with 220 for AC and electric dryers with 220 30AMP service in the cabins...this just makes it more convenient for Tesla owners and gets 1st Lady Pam Northam some greenie positive press, if they were smarter they would have wired up the garage at by the Hilton waterfront, you know the one by the Neptune Statue with 50 destination chargers, that would get the right market, verses a campground...

    One thing nice about this campground is that all the sites are in the shade!!!

    While folks wait for these to be installed, there are a couple HPWCs at PRESS Wine Bar just west of the north end of the state park. I didn't get to use them last time I was down there because the road was super flooded.
    .
    Wine bar is cute and has good food/wine, if a little pricey. They had either 2 or 4 HPWCs (parking lot for the wine bar is smallish so 2 of the spaces were ICE'd).
