“Camper Beware”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2005

If you are looking for a party to go with your rafting trip, this is the place to go. The campgrounds are professionally maintained with fire pits and picnic tables in good condition. There are showers and decent bathrooms available as well as a small camp store that does not try to gouge you for forgetting to bring a flashlight. The platform tents and cabins looked pretty decent and some of the spots were really pretty.

The food is decent and the bar very popular.

Our rafting trip was great and the area beautiful. Somehow the resort managed to be on national park property - so you won't get closer to the park - you're already in it!

With all those positives, we only spent one night at the campground because of the partying. Despite our selection of the "quiet campground" there were loud drunks stumbling around it at two in the morning. It was a lot more of a party than we wanted. The other big problem was that the campgrounds are not reserved - even after you put your tent down. We had to share our campsite with a large group that arrived late. There is no management of the sites so its down to human relations who shares your site with you. Other campers had similar problems - the family next to us shared their site with the owners of a snippy pit bull.

However, this was over a weekend (Friday/Saturday) - Sunday it appeared that half of the campers left so I suspect if you came in the middle of the week you might not have such a noise problem. You might want to check if there are any visiting large groups scheduled for the dates of your visit. Two large buses were heading out when we checked in.

So camper beware....
