Easily accomodated a large group

Stayed here on a school trip with a group of over 50 people and we had plenty of room. Campsite had access to a few different foot paths which we didn’t explore too far down but certainly seemed nice. Pit toilets were fine by pit toilet standards. We visited in the spring and it was pretty buggy, but not unmanageably so. I think a bear visited us in the night but it was not an issue. Exploring farther up the road the campgrounds are on we came to a residential area, where we were approached by a local who offered directions. Nice place!
