I am a little sorry to enter the fray on this as I don't want to ignite a battle that will invite more negative reviews, but please take them with a grain of salt. We have been camping there for two weeks at a time over twenty years and also have the context of being experienced campers at many other campgrounds. This campground has hands-down the cleanest, best-designed and well-maintained bathrooms that we have ever encountered in a campground. You can hear a pin drop after 10:00. Perhaps the best data on this is that people come for the first time, and then return year after year. A very clean-cut, family atmosphere - most sightings of any teenagers are likely to be some polite boys tossing a frisbee back and forth in front of the bathroom or cute fourteen year-olds clustered around the mirror in the bathroom! (sorry about the stereotypes)
Natural setting is just beautiful, location is great, office could not be more responsive. This is an extremely high quality place with a long tradition of attentive support for all of us campers, careful stewardship of the beautiful setting, and attentive enforcement of modest, reasonable campground rules. My advice to the Craigheads is to skip right by some of these puzzling entries as you have created a large community who values what you do.
