Cute little park

I wouldn't make a week's vacation of it but it's fine for a night or two. We were the only people there on the weekend we went, so it doesn't seem to get too crowded. Staff were extremely accommodating with helping us get a camping permit. The only downside was that the place was swarming with Canadian geese… We were worried if we left our site for too long we'd come back to find the tent deconstructed and the rest of our items thrown about, lol. It really would be nice if there were campsites further from the lake.

Simply Amazing

Where to start?! This is my favorite campground, public or private. The sites are large and many are somewhat private in terms of visual barriers. Some bathrooms are latrines, but they also have beautiful, fully updated showers and restrooms available. The camp store had good hours and is stocked to high heaven; you could come here with just the clothes on your back and buy everything you need for a very comfortable stay. To top it all off, the park itself is stunning. This is probably the largest, most well-kept public campground I have ever been to, and I'm dying to return.

We also saw a dung beetle, which was awesome.

Rustic, but in need of repair.

This place needs some TLC. The roads were very poorly maintained, with washed out areas and pot holes everywhere. Bathhouses didn't have lights, and the one near us didn't have running water and looked like it hadn't in some time. Annoying, but not a big deal… The mystical hidden showers, however, were a real problem. There was no indication on the map as to where the showers were. We drove around to 3 different bathhouses, all of which were just toilets/port a pots with sinks. The website explicitly states that showers are available. They really need to be marked, either on signage, the map, or both.

Beautiful location, cramped sites

Beautiful location, though the sites are fairly small and close together. We stayed on the F loop, which was non-electric but roomier with more privacy. Don't plan on being able to gather dry wood for an easy fire; it rains frequently on the mountain and things tend to stay damp for a while. Showers are coin operated and there's a change machine nearby. The camp store was pretty decent and staff members were extraordinarily friendly.
