Description

This small campground is located more in the outskirts of the park, yet also remains easily accessible to everything the area has to offer.

Biggest campsite I have ever stayed in. Would be great for large groups (and it seemed that's what most were doing around us). Bit of a misnomer in its name - since you can't really see the water at all, at least in summer. I'd call it a great campground but the other campgrounds in the park seemed just a bit more scenic, which made the Upper Bayview spot less desireable. If I go again, I'll try to get a premium spot in the Kelsey creek campground where sites sit directly on the water.

Additional note: info on hipcamp right now is wrong. Sites have firepits, potable water, flush toilets, showers, and are pet-friendly.
