    This is a beautiful, peaceful place, with easy access to many great hiking trails. Unfortunately the campground host is a total jerk. His “Off Duty” sign was always on his trailer, but I needed to ask a quick question, so I politely knocked. He was extremely rude and unfriendly and made me feel like a criminal for asking a simple question.
