We stayed 3 nights in Loop C (tent only). This is a VERY dusty campground with very little ground foliage, which adds to the dry and dusty look. There isn't very much privacy for most spots and most are close together. On our first night we stayed at spot 67 which was nice and close to the restroom, but the main trail to the restroom ran right behind and so we got a LOT of foot traffic. The following morning one of the two best spots in the entire campground (sites 71 and 73) opened up just across the way from us, so we moved over there for out second two nights. Site 73 was GREAT! We had only one neighbor. There was no privacy between 71 and 73, but there were FAR apart. There is a TON of room at this spot; I was shocked it wasn't a group site. You could fit 3-4 tents easily. The back of the site backs up to the forest....great view! The bathrooms were actually quite clean with flush toilets and a sink for washing. There is a utility sink as well for washing dishes. There are no showers at the campground, but you can go to the general store and pay for a shower there (small individual stalls and one large handicap stall....handicap stall takes $2 in quarters, but you need to exchange cash for two $1 presidential dollars in the store itself for the regular stalls (8 minute timed). The shower area was typical for a campground shower...hot water, bring your shampoo etc.
There weren't any evening fireside chats at the campground, but they offer a geology talk during the day at one of the viewpoints and a star-gazing talk certain evenings near the visitor center.
It was nice enough overall, but I doubt we'd stay there again. As much as I enjoy camping, I'd probably rather stay at a motel for this particular national park. Ruby's Inn looked really nice.
