16 "reach out and touch" your neighbors' campers parking spots; 8 each side of the gravel lot. No sewer hookup; electric and water only. Stayed 3 nights. Glimpsed camp "host" once - leaving - no host was in attendance during our stay. Tents set up despite the No Tents sign was the least bothersome. Worst: two Aramark resort employees live in a plywood-over-some windows, dilapidated motor home in one of the sites; routinely left their two dogs unattended for hours on end; the dogs barked and howled constantly, until 2 am the 3 nights we were there. First night we were next door, even though we had asked at the lodge desk to move and were told that was impossible as all spaces were reserved and only appeared open due to "late arrivals". The next morning, with 4 open spaces remaining at the farthest opposite end from the noise, we insisted and were very specific about the reason we needed to move. Our next 2 nights were far enough away from the dogs' ruckus that we slept, but we heard plenty from the immediate neighbors, each would stay a night adjacent and end up leaving or moving.
Trash and recycling was filling up when we arrived on Wed., overflowing by Friday (this with warnings about not attracting wildlife, especially bears, posted on each picnic table); management at desk said, well, someone will come by tomorrow (Saturday). Family left their fire ring, picnic table, and the ground in between strewn with food, food wrapping, cans, and bottles and two days later, it was still there, minus what the wildlife had picked apart, when we left. No evidence of any attention from management nor absentee host.
