The "Rustic Tent" sites are, quite literally, a dried up creek bed. They wouldn't even qualify as an over-flow parking lot. The only thing distinguishing the "camp sites" from the parking lot were the picnic tables down in the dried up creek bed (which is lined by gravel, mind you, making what I can only imagine a not so super comfortable place to sleep). There are no designated camp sites. There are no fire pits, no BBQ grills in the rustic campsite area, no bathrooms, no showers... need I go on? Oh yea, and it was about 90 degrees at 6:00 pm.
We spent about 15 minutes looking around, willing to pay for an upgrade to the grassy tent area, before leaving. Although there was a guard on duty, and we asked to pay more so that we could pitch our tent in the grass, we were told there was nothing he could do. There was only one other tent in the grass area, yet we were not allowed to put ours in the same area. We were only allowed to consider the "rustic" tent sites. There was a bathroom in the grass area (about a quarter mile away from the "rustic" campsites). I could not fathom spending the night in the overflow parking lot, I mean, the rustic campsites where there were no designated spots, no dirt (only gravel) and no toilets.
Words cannot express the disappointment the kids felt when I had to tell them (after reading the signs stating you should wear close-toed shoes because RATTLE SNAKES had been spotted in the camping area) that we would NOT be camping at this place. Oh my gosh, did I forget to mention that the TRAIN (as in an AMTRACK train) passed within 100 yards of the rustic camp site approximately every hour? Seriously. Two trains came through in the 15 minutes that we were there.
TOTALLY AWFUL - would give it negatives points if possible.
