Five Mile Island

This campground has "ample" facilities, depending on your level of backpacking. There is not a problem finding a level tent pad, there are bear wires, and a pit toilet. The bear wires are a great convenience, but our neighbors were not so considerate because they chose to use multiple hooks to hang their stuff, instead of leaving some for the others in the area, so be prepared to hang your gear regardless. This camp is very easy to reach so there are plenty of inexperienced campers around, but there are also those that are on their way to trek deep into the park. So if you are looking for a place to take the family this can be great, but if you are looking for a true nature experience or isolated camp, this is not for you.
