We stayed 4 days over a busy holiday weekend. Our site was very large (30 in the B loop) with a 20'x15' tent box, more secluded than the others, and all shade with little/no grass. The bugs were out in full force, but we still...More

Just home from a great weekend of camping with family. Nice cooler weekend and the mosquitos were almost non-existent. Sites were nice and private. It's too bad the visitor center was closed for the week.
