Nice campground. Good sites. Some with pads for campers and some sites for tents. Lots of trees. Many sites had sun full time while others, like ours (site 30) we're mostly shaded, which is what we prefer because of tent camping. Nice fire pits. Had...More

We spent 3 nights here over the 4th of July. This is a great campground. All the site are back-Ins and the back of every site is forest. This is important for privacy. The back of your site does not have the back of another...More

The mountain bike trails are well kept, the scenery is awesome. It was a very relaxing, serene, and enjoyable trip. I enjoyed biking along the falling leaves and crisp fresh air.

it says 3:00 p.m. we got there a bit before, say 2:15 and got in. I think as long as the site is open they will let you get set up.

I don't think they patrol if that is what you are asking. We did see empty beer cans at the can donation trailer that is there so people do not abide by the rule.
