Great location to get to all the good hiking spots in the area, however I don't think this campground is suited for longer stays. the camp sites are all crammed together and there's hardly and trees to aid to your privacy. we spent most of our time hiking but when we got back to the camp site spent most of our time listening to screaming children from 6:00 in the morning till they passed out around 10 which happens to be the quiet hour for the camp ground. the showers are coin operated, and while using one my husbands time ran out while he was still covered in soap, putting in a couple more quarters to start it up didn't work, it had just stopped working. The man at the service counter wouldn't give us our dollar back instead he offered a quarter to get it started, but thats why I had sunk a dollar into it to begin with and he had already dried off and gotten dressed. There was trash strewn across our site and half burnt logs that wouldn't fit into the fire pit. The fire wood we bought from the campground cost $12.00 for two bundles, and it was so wet we couldn't even use half of it.
