Camped at Lake Skinner the weekend of July 23-26, 2010. We had a large group consisting of 26 sites / approx 120 people total. We stayed in the group rows of the 'C' area with a few extra sites. The rangers were INCREDIBLY helpful in working with us to get our group to the proper sites. As coordinator, I stayed an extra night and went to the ranger station first think in the morning with the list of "who goes where." They took all of that information down and directed our group to their sites with no problem. I don't think we had any further contact with the rangers the rest of the trip. Not that they aren't around... there is an incredible amount of ranger presence. They probably came through out camping area about every 30-60 minutes. A drive by to make sure everything was going fine -- that no one was bother anyone. A smile... a wave... have a nice day!
It was HOT our weekend out there. And with the pool not open, we had lots of water activities. Both within our campground and also in the grassy areas. Again, we kept it within the area that our campers were in and had no problems whatsoever.
Quiet time was quiet. Not that there was NO NOISE at all, but at 10:00pm everything wound down and was very respectful. Bonfires burning, occasional outburst of laughter, but nothing you couldn't sleep though.
I believe that we'll be back next year with another group. Hopefully, the water area will be completed and this place will then be PERFECT!
