The campground was great. We used it for a church retreat camp out, and had about 50 people there, which was pretty much the max. It was a large number of small families, but it was great because there was plenty of room for everyone's tent without being too crowded. The cooking set up was perfect. The site had one large campfire pit and one large BBQ, with several collected tables around the BBQ and then several more tables scattered around the site. We had no problem with our large group breakfast in the morning, or with the everyone cook your own dinner. The tables were set up to offer room without being too far scattered about. The campfire had benches built around it and made for a great group get together at nights. There were a large number of kids, and they had a great time with plenty of open space to play. The facilities could have been a little better, they seemed to have not been cleaned in a while, and we never did see a ranger while we were there. Also, there was a limited parking, so we had trouble with lots of small families coming up. Overall very happy with the campground and would love to go back.
