Since none of our group could get cell phone service, we actually had a good camping experience. The bathrooms were a little scary [a spider or two], but the water hydrant was great, and the toilets flushed.. Only one night was marred by a loud and rowdy camper, but I gave him a sturdy talking to, and all was quiet. It is very shady here and a musical brook meandered right by our campsite. I like to stay there every year in June as a base camp for kayaking. We camped at Cable Cove in a Tent Trailer.

I give it a 2 because it's got potential. It appears to be relatively good maintained. The critical flaws with this USDA Forest Service campground are that you're 8 miles away from the nearest cell phone signal (Verizon), literally, this is not an exaggeration. Nobody in the entire campground could place a call. Sure you can go a while without talking on the phone, but in a campground, when someone decides to shoot off fireworks at 1 in the morning, which is what happened when I stayed there, there's no way to call for help. It would be one thing if there were Ranger or Police patrols but there wasn't a single law enforcement vehicle come through all night. If you have a problem, you're totally on your own. Ain't nobody coming to help you. Aside from that critical combination of problems, there was zero enforcement of any of the rules and some of the biggest problems that I saw were way too many people and cars at some sites. There was one site with about a dozen cars and probably 30 people. People were using single sites as group sites. There was raucous noise all night and fireworks being shot carelessly in the middle of the night. I saw where someone emptied their black water tank right along the side of road. The bear proof trash cans where full (of un-bagged food waste) and people where leaving garbage bags piling up. This, at a campground that was closed and reopened just last month because of bear incidents. It was very sad to see our Forest Service campgrounds abused and disrespected like this. Each campsite is very large. Consisting of a tent pad, grill, and fire ring and a gravel parking space. I could see a small to medium travel trailer, but that's about it. They could easily split each site into two sites and double the number of sites. All the sites are shaded or part shaded but there really isn't any privacy. The scene over at the Tsali campground was much different. A totally different crowd. As for Cable Cove, I wouldn't stay there again if you paid me. We camped at Cable Cove in a Truck Camper.
