Spend three nights there in late July. Warm days and cool nights and as far away from everything as you can get. Most of the campsites are developed, level with fire pits, picnic tables and some with shelters. Bathrooms with flush toilets but no showers. Electric at some sites, water spigots located throughout the park. Not a lot of big rig friendly sites. At the end of the road that for the last mile or so is gravel. Very quiet and virtually empty while we were there. If there were showers, I would give it 5 stars.
