These grounds are gorgeous and really well-kept! The sites were clean and the facilities function like new. When we realized this campground was in the middle of a city we were expecting some sort of generic park that allows camping, but it doesn’t feel like you are in a city. Lots of space and scenery to walk around, and a decent forested area connected to the grounds. On top of all that, the ranger is fantastic. You can tell he genuinely wants you to enjoy your trip, and he is pretty knowledgeable about local wildlife! Highly recommend this place for beginners or anyone wanting a nice simple camping trip. The cabins are also very nice!

Was nervous because some of the other reviews I've read were less than stellar. However the ranger who worked with my reservation (Tom) was really great and super nice. It's a great place for someone who wants to start out camping because it's surprisingly super close to shopping center (you can't even tell!) It's a very cozy place I will definitely be back someday!

Don't bother camping here. There are only a couple sites. There are three cheap cabins, but not too clean. Head staff/ranger are rude. General staff okay. Very limited resources.
