One of our favorite campgrounds! It is open later in the fall than some campgrounds, closing mid to late October. By then you can usually get the place to yourself. Some sites offer lots of privacy. The best part is the hiking trails. They have done a lot of tree removal in the last couple of years, taking away from some of the privacy there, but still such a beautiful place to camp! The bathrooms are clean but they shut the water off before they actually close.
