Something between an RV park and a state park campground. Don't let the crowds put you off, tho. Grin and bear it at the campground, then during the day take full advantage of the lovely trails, the caves, the natural rock formations and those rivers. Bathrooms are new-ish, but there's a real bug problem at this campground (maybe because the water treatment is right on site); bathrooms swarmed. My campsite (G1, right between the public swimming pool and the sewage treatment area) is best avoided but try to score the larger group campsite next to G1, and you should be okay. What I loved: the trails through rhododendron jungles, the rush of the river and the falls.

It's Old Man's Cave! Hard to go wrong here. Another spot that seems to be more suited to RV camping than tent camping. WE actually paid to stay in the group area because were with a few other families. Loved the spot. Close to the restrooms, showers, laundry, and the kids favorite: the pool! It was hot when we went to s it was nice for the kids to get to cool off in the pool. The restroom was clean. If you find yourself needing to use the laundry (like we did thanks to some rain, and a leaky tent..... thankfully it was just some wet towels) make sure you have some change, and bring your own detergent and fabric softener. We definitely plan on going again.
