Default Doesn't look good

Even looks bad on Google Earth.
Airnav has a bad evaluation but does have phone numbers.

It’s actually not a bad little airstrip; the (narrow) runway pavement is fine but the parking area is a bit crappy. The runway’s high point is at the north end and slopes down to the south into a grove of trees, plus there’s a power line and fence at the north end; these obstacles plus the downhill slope will cause a long landing to the south if there’s too much speed on short final. Wind permitting, land north and takeoff south.
