No doubt, Lodgepole campground is by far the better campground for families, with great facilities, convenience and amenities. It's just like at home except that you are camping in the higher altitude forest which is cooler and has tall trees and river. Try to set camp away from the camp sites that are grouped together if you have a choice, e.g. sites 129 - 142. These sites are so close together that you can hear breathing from your neighbors. We camped near there for two nights (in early August) but for me I couldn't get to sleep till after 1 AM because there were at least 4-5 families that camped together with kids running around, music blasting, and the jovial laughing, singing and talking till 1. Don't think rangers care much about enforcing quiet time. But, what the hack, still enjoyed the park tremendously.
