We were searching for a close campground for a quick, 1st of the season check on the operation of our travel trailer. We found this place online and decided to go for it and boy are we ever glad we did!
The staff are incredibly helpful -- trust me on this-- we couldn't figure out why some of our electrical wasn't working but they willingly helped us figure it out. The next day, a cold/windy/rainy morning, I managed to lock myself out of the camper IN MY P.J.'s and they helped me get back in (despite being almost mauled by my dog) just as cheerfully as you please.
Add to that the incredible views (yeah, even for a local), the pristine grounds, the little hiking trails, the peace and quiet and you've got an absolute winner in my opinion.
The only thing I would warn folks about is that this campground is on top of a ridge, and the road winding up it is steep and narrow. Of course, if you call ahead, they will be happy to hold any campers from coming down on your way up. Besides, it's completely worth it.
FYI: they have something for every camper -- full hook ups, tent sites and even a few yurts - one of which I may reserve for my next anniversary.
Go. You'll be glad you did.
