One thing I'll say -- not surprisingly -- is that in July when we stayed there were a TON of people. Though personally it didn't bother us but we enjoy being around people when we camp. I felt like it was definitely a bit pricey for what you get though (but then again the park in general was kind of pricey). We paid about $100/night... and then a couple of bucks extra for a sleep pack (the additional amenities were pretty inexpensive). You could also rent a chair and they sold firewood right on the site.
The site itself has one bunk bed and one regular sized adult bed. Then there's also an outside area attached to the bedroom that has a table/bench... and of course you get your own fire pit.
It was a unique experience (easy to get lost though when you're trying to find your site again if you leave) -- but I think next time I'm going to try somewhere else.
The shower area was very clean -- just long lines most of the day.
