A little more resort then I like

It's a nice camp ground, but its a little more of resort camping than I normally go for. Don't get me wrong! It's beautiful! But i probably would try somewhere else next time. Plus side, it's near to a lot of attractions! Covered bridges, waters falls! Thats what makes this place worth it
