We visited in May 2015, staying in site A-07. The site was nice, but the table at this site was a bit bent out of shape, like something very heavy had been dropped on one end of it. A few pine stumps are scattered around the site - watch that you don't set anything down on them, some are still a bit sappy. Each site has a bear locker - judging from the last review on this site, bears have been a problem here. Firewood is available from the campground host, and we had no trouble finding kindling to get a fire going. The restrooms and water were a satisfactory distance from the site - not too close and not too far. We did get some noise from 260 at this site, but camp sites further in would not have that problem.
User Rating:
This campground is currently closed to all tent camping and pop up trailers because of bears. Only RV's are allowed.
