Report: Overzealous campsite manager screamed at us to go to bed at nine thirty. We were quiet and yet he decided to call police. We were not refunded our money and made to leave at eleven o'clock. No talking policy is enforced and adults in the sixties were told to go to bed. First told music must be low then no music allowed. Great place to go for people who like abuse. The place itself is beautiful and I hate to write anything bad because the place is amazing but the people need to chill out. Toilet seriously needs to be cleaned.
Conditions: Great place for the family. Great trails. I loved it.
Water Availability: Plenty of clean water, no problem.

Report: We went hoping to find an empty campsite on the 9th of Aug. We found one, but it was right next to the Outhouse... the last site available. We felt fortunate to get it, although it wasn't until the wind shifted that we were able to get any relief from the smell. We had a marvelous time none the less... and would recommend it to all.
Conditions: Weather was wonderful
Water Availability: We brought in our own water, but found plenty of water in the campground. Where we were, next to the outhouse and just a site or two from the Campground Host, was a water spigot.
