The first thing we have to tell you about this campground is to pack BUG SPRAY!!! When we visited this campground we were covered in mosquitoes.
We ended up applying bug spray multiple times in a short amount of time to try to handle all of the bugs.
The scenery is amazing but it is definitely bug heavy.
