The weather has been wonderful to get out and see this big park. It is almost too big to see it all. No time to just sit around the campsite and relax - actually that is not an option at this campsite. There is enough room to park your camper and one vehicle - that is it. No picnic table, no fire ring, no place to even sit a camp chair. I have been in KOA campgrounds with more room. This is a real disgrace to National Park camping. It is run by an outside concessionaire and is all about the $, how many folks can you cram into a small space for the most amount of $. But we knew it coming in, and were convinced we needed a place with electricity etc., and a place that we could reserve ahead, but it won't happen again. I would rather stay in a Wal-Mart parking lot before here again.

One of the tour books said if you want to avoid the crowds, take a hike - just being 1 mile off the main road will lose 90% of the people, good advice. Hiking is always a good way to get away from everything.
