So this is an interesting site. The drive is extremely long and windy. It would be a nice view except the whole area went through a fire. We were there in June of 2016, i assume it happened in that year or the year past. We got to the campground to find that there was no water. The faucets were dry. Have 5 kids this was a problem but the camp host was great and brought us jugs of water. We drove down to the lake and were able to get a nice spot before the crown to swim and hang out. Definitely wouldn't go back but, it was an experience.
