I gave the campsite 1 star because I wasn't able to actually stay there! Its a small campground close to the Horton creek trailhead and very quiet. However, we arrived at 12 noon on May 29 to find one open spot #9. We checked the tag on the tree and the space had been paid for thru 5/30. However, the spot was empty, so we checked with the campers in the next spot and they confirmed the previous campers had packed up and left. So at 12:30 we paid our fee (which ended up being $16 for the night and the website says $8) dropped the payment in the box and attached the receipt to the tree. Set up camp and went for a hike. When we returned at 5pm the host told us she didn't receive payment so gave up the spot to someone else! The receipt was on the tree in which she removed and then gave us our payment back from the box! Needless to say, we packed up our stuff and left. Not a good way to run a site. We thought we did everything right and somehow got booted from our site. very disappointing.
