Cavern is a must see. The campground is a must bypass. My family tent camps and found the facilities lacking the advertised charms. The tent sites are EXTREMELY close together. You are unable to have a private conversation as your neighbors are so close they can hear you in even the most normal tones. As another reviewer commented
 
    camp workers are teenagers, the advertised bathhouse-restroom is dimly lit and the hand dryer did not work. The window AC unit could not keep up with the humidity the showers produced. The laundry facility had 1 of the 2 washers out
 of service. Pool was green, and the ''grill-fire ring'' was made up of an 18 wheeler's metal wheel rim. We ended up having to go to the nearby store to buy a grill grate so we could use our ''grill''. We had a picnic table at our site, but our neighbors did not. This site is in the flight path of the airport and near a train station. You could hear jets and trains periodically throughout the day and night. Wooded tent sites are located just behind a housing sub-division, and occasionally you can hear neighborhood dogs barking. If you own an RV or pop-up and don't need to rely on their facilities, this might be suitable. I did not use any hook-ups, so I cannot comment on their functionality.  
If you are tent camping, bypass for a more tent-friendly site where you have suitable grills, fire rings, picnic tables, things are as advertised, and you can truly feel as if you are camping. Says Kim (Fri, 17 Oct 2008)
