We go camping at newtown at least 2 or 3 times a month. Its a great place.
Great site. Pretty self serve, rangers drive through often but never seems to be anyone at the check-in. You can reserve a site or a cabin, or you can show up after three and see what is open. Communication isn't great. Our site which was reserved was not on the board. The reservation system showed us and two others before Friday, at eight thru ten cars came in looking for sites. If I had been late getting in an my site was taken I'd have had to call a ranger to evict. Again, they are driving around doing chores, but no one was there at the office. Trails are well signed at intersections, and they are well worn, but mostly without blazes. Camp sites are tidy and we'll mowed, a trash can at each site, nice combo grill/fire ring. Got a black leg tick, so heed the signage and check for them. Bathroom/showers were well cared for.
