Beautiful place east hike access

The camp ground is pretty, but the sites are very close together. It is first come, first serve which I think is fair for everyone. I wouldn't come here during peak season or weekends...it would get very crowded and easily become a not so relaxing weekend.

Crowded, Loud

I stayed here for two nights in the middle of the week in July 2020.  AFAIK all of the campsites here are first-come, first serve, so get here early.  I arrived at about 1:00 pm on a Tuesday, and got the last (worst) site, right next to the campground manager, the entrance, and the toilet.
