Report: The biggest reward was when My son could go into the water and play. My son is in a wheelchair most of the time ;so this was a blessing to us all to have the cool water near by for my son to play. There are bears up here but you souldn't be afraid. If you are afriad of the bears stay close to the ranger. The bugs are bad in the Summer but the stay is worth everything.
Conditions: There are masquitio's just bring bugs off candles and your camping trip should be great.Bring something for shade if you have someone that can't do sun to well. Most of the spots here have shade.
Water Availability: There are places around camp to get water.Bring fire wood to your camping trip; sometimes men will come up to sell wood put don't count on them.
