Campsites were extremely difficult to get into, very tight. Campsites were also very small and were enclosed with stone walls; not much room for chairs and grills and such. There was only one hiking trail and it led to a lookout tower that had been closed for safety reasons so we couldn't go up it. It was also very steep, rough and short. The campground was gated and not always staffed so sometimes you had to wait for someone to show up to let you in. We had a couple come down to visit us and the park charged each a $7 "visitors fee". The also issued wrist bands so they could check to make sure you weren't sneaking in although how you would do that with the gate system I don't know. I couldn't figure out why they needed that kind of security and to be charged for day visitors seemed really excessive. One of our group had a broken sewer line so he couldn't use it (most of the lines were above ground) and although he reported it, they never fixed it so he couldn't use his sewer hook up. Ours was hidden under a rock and at a 45' angle and up against another large rock so none of our fittings would work although we could pump out if we held the hose into the sewer line. I didn't care for the campground and will most likely not be returning.

We were disappointed as we called to make sure and were told by the owner that there were hiking and biking trails nearby. The only hiking trail was very rough and at one point you had to wade across the stream to hike it. There was no biking and the fishing was very disappointing. You had to either hike the very long, rough trail or drive to the fishing spots. The store was seldom open and the campground road was extremely rough. Most of the sites seemed to be occupied by resident campers. We also had a very noisy party next to us that the owners did nothing to quiet down, although the children were loud and boisterous well into the late night hours.
