What I liked best about this campground was that unlike a State park the campsites were not right ontop of each other. Each cabin has its own picnic table and fire pit, however the site is on such a steep hill they are kind of difficult to use. The major drawback to this campsite is the shower situation. There are only two shower stalls for the entire campground. They are seperate from the bathroom areas and are open, which is actually really neat because you can see the sky. It looks as though they are building another stall but when I went this past weekend there were only two, one of which only had cold water. To take a shower in the morning meant you had to get in line because the two available were coed, making the lines even longer.
Overall a neat campground, I was glad to try it once but probably wouldn't go back.
