Arrived here on a Friday morning in July, the campground was essentially empty! We were able to pick a large campsite right next to the meadow with plenty of shade. We have a wonderful weekend camping here. We spent most of our days at the creek swimming, evenings were spent watching the hundreds of butterflies and dragonflies over the meadow. The campground did fill up later on Friday but even then there were empty spots on Saturday. I will definitely return!
