Just visited there this last weekend (Aug 15, 2009) with hopes all I read was true...it was not. This campground is disgusting! We found the ''water wheel'' and its nothing more than a toilet for its visitors. It is quite a shame because this could really be a beautiful spot that families could visit over and over. I know the Forest Service needed to cutback on things, but its no excuse for the users of this place to leave it like they have. Says TK (Mon, 17 Aug 2009)
