We spent a week staying at various campgrounds across the GTTS road and this was by far the worst. The amenities weren't the problem, but each night I became convinced that something in the air made the people and their pets crazy. All of the other campgrounds had patrolling rangers that made sure the noise was reasonable and people kept to the rules. At this campground, people literally chopped down live trees in their campsite to burn them. Others gave their children carte blanche to run through others' sites at 6 in the morning, screaming. At all other campgrounds we stayed at, pets were well behaved and quiet. At this one, there was at least one dog fight that we witnessed owners trying to pull the dogs apart because one wasn't leashed. And dogs howled and barked through the nights. I honestly would never go back to this campground. Maybe it's not anything in the air making people crazy, but it IS the easiest campground to get to from the populated side of the park, making it the resting place of a lot of people who wouldn't otherwise put too much effort into camping. Because of that, the overall courtesy and common sense of the campers seemed to be at a minimum. I would recommend getting to the park early and driving past Apgar over to Fish Creek where it seemed to be more subdued.
