The campground has several loops. Loops are adjacent to one another and also have an incline while you work the road with the loop, offering more views at the highest. Loop and campground roads are paved, while site pads are dirt. Several of the campsites offer hookups, and all sites offer picnic tables, fire rings and a few shrubbery. We found the campground to have need of a couple TLC and were disappointed with how overgrown the grasses and shrubbery appeared. The natural grasses at our site were so overgrown, it forced us to understand more about no further compared to the site pad and picnic table. Site pads are fairly unlevel,
so we felt pretty fortunate which our site was an anomaly. The campground has large Laundromat, gas station, a nicely stocked store offering groceries, souvenirs and details about the park. Check in for those was a little bit of a lengthy process so we found the on-duty supervisor who had been assigning us our site to become rude. Evening ranger programs can be found. We enjoyed spotting deer at our camp and also the park’s attractions area must-see if you‘re in the area. It‘s definitely worth stopping here for a couple of nights to understand more about the park. A few RV parks can be found outside from the park in case you prefer a more polished setting.
