I have stayed here in years past and most recently last week 7-9-2019. The past, I don't recall so many generators in use. They have become much more popular and folks fire them up often. I am a tent camper. It looked like all sites were capable of handling large RV's. We stayed in site 6. The wind was blowing from the pit toilets towards our camp. The several middle sites might experience that pleasant odor :) No water in the campgrounds. The nearest is Smiling River. There is a water fill up area in the parking lot of the GS Camp across the Allingham Bridge. I saw RV's filling up there. If Cell service is important, you may be in luck at this campground. I have a Sprint Hotspot device and it was getting an ok signal without a WeBoost. This is on the fringe of service. My ATT would not pull in a signal unless I was using my WeBoost Cell Amplifier and a directional Antenna. My kid's have Verizon and it was not working unless they used the Amplifier as well. Someone was in site 18 along the river and has Verizon. Was not able to get service. They fired up their WeBoost Amplifier in their RV and were able to get a decent signal with an omni-directional antenna. The road outside of the campgrounds, walk or drive up a few hundred yards and cell service starts to be better. You can also go up to the viewpoint on Forest Rd 14 just above the Gorge Campground and get good signal.
