Runway in good shape especially the southern 1/2 to 2/3. Northern end of the runway gets soft. The runway is narrow, and the edges the entire length get soft very quickly. Like the rest of the runway the parking area on the southern end is soft along the edges.

SW 2/3 of runway is in good condition. Is seeing some use, so vegetation is no issue.

Good condition. Could use some more traffic to knock down some of the vegetation
