We camped one night in the campground. We loved how beautiful the night sky was from our tent site. We had a picnic table and a fire pit right near our tent. We were able to roast marshmallows and look at the stars. It was wonderful.
There were only 2 drawbacks to camping at this park. The first is that it's really close to the park entrance, but not very close to anything else except for a couple of trail heads. So you definitely have to factor in drive time to any of the tours. The second issue was that the restroom area (while better than most campgrounds) still could use a little updating, especially in the showers. We did have hot water and it was fairly clean.
I recommend camping at least one night just to experience the quiet, the stars and getting to roast marshmallows and make s'mores with your family.
