Report: Huge amounts of pine beetle kill, leaving all of the surrounding hillsides and campground decimated. Small aspens and various undergrowth are starting to replace the pines. Once very popular campground is deserted. We did see four moose - two males, one female, and a very young moose. Having said all of this - we did very much enjoy ourselves and would probably return.
Conditions: Mosquitoes were there, but not bad. Some biting flies. Even with a lot of rain the previous week, campsites drained nicely. Dead pine trees in campground have been cut down and removed for the most part. Loss of trees had to be 90% or more. Campground tables are not well maintained, although campground itself was maintained, including the outhouse. Southfork boardwalk trail over the wetlands is not maintained anymore, has collapsed half way across and the collapsed section has been removed. Firewood is plentiful!
Water Availability: Water well was turned off, however the hand pump water well at the campsite a mile down the road was operating.
