Booked site in the 400 loop for two nights. Site was good size, however the only flat place to set up a tent was right in front of the bear box and the sites are very close to each other.
There are no dumpsters located in the camp loops. If you want to throw your trash, you have to take it to one of the dumpsters on the main camp road.
Restrooms are dirty. Two sinks and two stalls in each building. No soap or hot water. Due to no showers, people were bathing at the public water spout.
Loop roads have potholes that could severly damage a car. Really, is it that hard to fix potholes before they get that large?
No enforcement of quite hours. Drunk group of men in site next to mine were outside carrying on (LOUD talking, yelling, laughing, foul language, belching and farting contests until 2 AM). Group on the other side had a large party arrive at 12 AM.
I left after one night. IMO, the park does not enforce the quite hours so that people who have paid for sites will leave early, allowing the park to rent the space you have paid for to another party. If the park service can patrol the premises for bears at night, why can't they include enforcing the quite hour policy as well. I would rather have had an encounter with a bear than listen to the nonsense that went on that night.
If your interested in getting some sleep, your better off sleeping in your car on the side of the road. If your main intent is to party until all hours of the morning, this is your place.
