Report: Great campsite and really wonderful camp hosts. We stayed there almost 2 weeks and really enjoyed the camping amenities, surrounding areas, hiking and easy accessibility to frwy

Report: We camped here two nights ... actually, just one, because we packed up, tore down the tent, and left in frustration on Night Two because there was some seemingly crazy woman, or maybe she was just on crack, who kept yelling and yelling for hours while her companions blasted their stereo and kept their SUVs headlights trained on the center of the campyard. The facilities were okay, and the camp was nice, with crickets and coyotes ... but, unfortunately, we weren't allowed to enjoy these things, even though we'd paid our fees, etc. Recommended? I dunno - you're taking your chances because the rangers and camphosts didn't seem to be taking the initiative to enforce the camp regulations ... frankly, those people scared me, and I thought that their noise and discourtesy might only be the tip of some violent iceberg.
