This area is perfect if you are into hiking with the best views. We did see a bear crossing the road when driving, and many deer in the park. The campsites are somewhat close together, but the surrounding campers were friendly and the noise was minimal. We stayed at H loop. Everyone seemed to settle down for the evening around 9 pm. The lodge was a nice stop for breakfast on the way out, food was good and prices good also. The only complaint was the cleanliness of the bathrooms and the shower area. Of course some bugs are expected, but it just seemed excessive. Showers with mud and smeared unknowns on the walls that were there for the 2 days that we stayed. I've stayed at other campgrounds where the park crew would come around a few times during the day, but really only saw this twice during our stay. The dumpster near our site was completely full by mid Friday, with no way to add more garbage. It was nice that there was recycling available at the park. There was a gas station/food at the entrance to the campground that opened at 8am. A pleasant relaxing stay.
