    My kids really love this campground. We have stayed in the Virginia Loop which is all non electric as we tent camp. The waterfront sites on this loop are great in the late spring for the kids to fish right off the banks. The pond at the campground is supposed to be stocked for fishing but all we seemed to catch there were turtles. Campground wide, there is very little privacy between sites however, so dont expect any. The campground can also be very noisy depending what time of year it is, and with little privacy between sites it can be an annoyance. the rangers do not seem to enforce quiet hours, as we were there memorial weekend and there were 3 campsites that were together and at 1am were still loud and disturbing the rest of the loop. While the rangers make regular rounds, they did not seem to enforce the quiet hours. The showers run out of hot water pretty quickly when the campground is full and there are not enough showers for the size of the campground so be prepared to wait or be flexible. SKUNKS ARE A PROBLEM HERE! they will come in the campsite even while people are up and around. The swimming beach is very nice, and the camp store is excellant. They also rent bikes there. There is a bike trail the circles the outside of the campground that is nice also, but it is worth the drive up to the nature center. They have a nice planetarium with nightly laser shows now on friday and sat nights during the summer. If you get to the campground early friday, there is usually a man at the main turnoff selling firewood. I would get this and not the campground firewood. It is usually pretty green and difficult to burn. We deal with the minor nuisances because this is a beautiful campground with lots for the kids to do and they love it!
