While I haven't stayed here before, I have stayed at Lower Prince Creek which is only a couple minutes away and I've driven by and through this campsite a few times. Similar to Lower Prince Creek (check out that review), the price is currently up in the air. According to the paperwork posted at Lower, they were supposed to have started charging in 2019, but that hasn't happened yet. They have a pay station, but have not posted a price and don't have any envelopes. Lower Prince Creek was free when I stayed there last week, as was Upper, but no guarantee it will be later.

Both campgrounds are similar in their layout and amenities with each site having a tent pad, fire ring, and table and the campground has a single pit toilet with no running water. Both have a group site, although the group site here is larger and across the road from the main campground, the gate for that was closed when I was there. Upper is a bit more exposed to the road than lower, but is closer to the stream which has an access right next to site 1 (think "getting your feet wet" stream, not "dropping in a kayak" stream.)
