We came here because there is a lot to do in the area and didn't want to chance not being able to reserve a campsite in the National Park Campground. The Campground as a whole is not too bad, albeit a bit expensive, but you're in tourist country. The main issue I had was that the campsites are far too close together. There was literally no privacy whatsoever. It was nice to have a campsite right on the creek, but the hoards of other campers in the campground were constantly running back and forth through our site to access the creek which was rather annoying. When I'm sitting around the campfire at my campsite I don't care for a steady stream of people walking, tripping, jumping etc over my feet. Although there are rules about the number of people per campsite, our neighbors (who were less than 5 feet away, the campsites are rediculously close to one another) had at least 20 people at their site and were playing guitar, bongos, harmonica, and maracas throughout the evening. Sigh.
All of that aside, it's a fine area for families with young children, the facilities apperared well maintained and clean. We did have moments of peace where we were able to get what we wanted out of the experience. Most likely I wouldn't go back to camp, due to the feeling that you were camping in the middle of a playground at times. If you're the type of camper who doesn't mind a lot of interaction with your neighbor, then it's a great place to camp.
