RG campground is lovely. We stayed in the small loop for tents and we happened to be across from the restroom facility (w/potable water). The site was on a bit of an incline but it was fully shaded! Nice bonus since we were seeking refuge from the heat wave in NYC. Not aa noisy loop -for all wee children seemed to be asleep by 9pm abd not "kid noisy" until about 9am. Well kept campground, lovely staff. Upon arrival ensure the fire pit has a grill if you intend on using it to cook - not every pit had one. There were none at maintenance shed, so we had permission to poach one from an empty campsite. Went mid week and left on a Friday thus making fir a quiet stay. 245 acre Lake Jean has various watercraft for rent, no gas motors - all electric! No noise or oily sheen on the water. Superb little beach and warm water for swimming. Excellent spot for families with small children. Hiking the waterfall loop is amazing! Well maintained trails and very clean. Cool geological formations to be seen. 3 hr drive from NYC. So worth it!
