I've camped there with my kids, it is a perfect first hike and backpacking trip. EXCEPT the trail head is REALLY popular and you will not get parking unless you get there before dawn or have some special parking god looking out for you. I was extremely luck to have a good samaritan see me with my kids and give me their parking spot or else I would have had to park 3/4s of a mile away. And the toilet pits stunk, but otherwise a good campsite for beginners.
