Couldn't have been happier with the campground itself, but the road to get there was so rough that we were afraid we were going to pop a tire getting there, so we ended up cutting our stay short and finding a campground with easier road access. If you have a Jeep or 4WD vehicle, it would probably be a more comfortable drive.
