    We really liked this campground. It was nestled back among the trees and was quiet and peaceful. Several of the campsites were close together, which is great when camping with friends, but not so good when by yourself. The restrooms were not so great, but maintained and there were showers for longer stays. Overall, I would say we are going back.
