There are 2 parts to this campground, one for RV's and a separate one for tents and soft sided campers. The tenting campground has an electric fence surrounding it to keep out the bear. The sites are well spaced, treed and pleasant. We travelled with an RV so were kept outside the fence! We were assigned our site and as we drove in I was at first excited, we had a good sized pull-though site with electricity. Then I noticed that there was a marker at the end of the driveway: this wasn't one space, but two! By that evening our neighbours had arrived, we were both long RV's so we had to overlap. Our trailers were only inches apart. We were travelling with young children, I cautioned them to do no more than breathe!
Our site was right beside the beautiful turquoise river that runs through the campground, I was longing to go for a walk along the path which skirts the river on our last night in the park, but we had run out of water while I was washing dishes. I was waiting, impatiently, for my husband and children to return with the buckets of water from the distant water pump, when I heard a commotion. Just then my husband returned and stated that the park wardens were trying to move a large mother Black Bear and her 2 cubs off of the trail, 20 ft from our trailer. I kind of wished we were inside of the fence then, I don't know much protection 1/2 inch walls provide.
My advice, try to stay in the fenced area: there's more privacyand protection. This campground is ideally located and we were in the shadows of a magnificent mountain, with the stunning river and wildflowers, but I didn't like sharing a site.
