Overall Rating

We've stayed here several times, until this year, we'd be the only people in the campground. The camp host was super nice and happy to have someone in camp. We recently arrived to find the campground mostly full. We grabbed one of the last remaining spots and watched people circle the small loop until well into the evening. People on ATVs who were staying at the nearby corral did circles around camp constantly.
The pit toilets were dirty, poorly maintained and chronically out of toilet paper.
The camp host, who appeared to be 15, was reluctant to enforce any sort of decorum, so some sites had trash and food scattered all over. People were tearing branches off of live trees to get firewood, despite firewood being available for $6.
When 7 cars full of people arrived to take one site, and they were so intoxicated as to be unable to assemble a tent, we left. I doubt we'll be back soon.
