Currently there are no reviews of this campground.
Very shady, ample room to set up several tents. We never did see any showers 1/4 mile from location. There were sightings of bears/cubs. Ranger came by to make sure our food was put away at all times not just at night. Very nice restaurant within walking distance. Great breakfast about $10 pp so could be costly for a family. We staye 07/20-7/22/2011. 4 Stars because of no showers.
We did have some people chopping wood for 5 hours straight and no ranger around to shut them down!
