Castle Lakes was very overpriced for tent camping ($22/night/site) and only allows one tent per site with a maximum of two people per site. More than two people per site is an additional fee. The campsite is good with showers and restrooms. Quite a bit of loud 4WD/dirt bike traffic on the nearby road during the day. The
 
    campground seems to have many rules that are considered common sense elsewhere. The owners require everyone in your party to come inside during check-in for the rules lecture and we felt like we were children at a summercamp. Fishing
 costs $6 per day (no license req'd) but is catch-and-TAKE only in one of the lakes and is fly-rod only and catch-and-release only in the other lake.
We won't be going back because the campground is too expensive for what is provided for tent camping. Not sure about prices for RVs or cabins. We can stay elsewhere with similar facilities for less than half the price and nowhere near the crowd. Says Don (Mon, 18 Aug 2008)

Obviously there are showers at this campground, and at the store you may buy desired items. This campground has some wonderful and comfortable cabins; restrooms are needless to say available.
There are good tent sites here where you can set up that camp site,
 
and Castle Lakes Campground Resort has a laundry room where you could clean clothing. There's so much stuff to do at Castle Lakes Campground Resort including fishing, whitewater paddling, hiking, and swimming, so it's out of the question to get bored.
