Overall Rating

Foster Falls is in my top 5 favorite places I have been to. The campground is close to the start of the trail to get to the waterfall. I was on site 24, which is a great location as neighbors are pretty far away but behind 24 a little ways back is a house that you can barely see. This house owns a rooster that has no idea when morning is and will "Cock-a-doodle-doo" whenever it feels like it. Sleeping was a pain. The campsite was clean but not sure why they chose rocks as for the pad. Since this is primitive, most everyone was using tents, makes for rough feet.

I gave the cleanliness a 2 star not on the campsite itself but the bathroom. Spiders everywhere, shower looked terrible, just felt very dirty. The nearest planet fitness to shower is 45 mins away.

I will also say, this is my third time visiting, first time camping. If you can, visit not on a holiday (I went on labor day weekend). This park has a vastly different experience when people are around. Both times before, there was a total of 5 people at the falls. This time was close to 100. College kids doing college stuff, which is fine all but if you are more into nature and less "waterhole" atmosphere, I would recommend an off day to visit. Please do visit though. This waterfall is a hidden treasure.
