One of the notable features of the airport there were stiff crosswinds from the north west at times making landing challenging. The airport originally sold 80LL and 100LL aviation fuel. During the early late 1960s into the early 1970s a short 2,000 foot unimproved or grass runway was constructed running perpendicular to the paved runway starting approximately 100' NE of the beginning of runway 7 extending south east.
