First the good: you really cannot beat the location. This campground has a natural wading pool, a deep flooded ore pit for swimming, a playground, a field and multiple trails to hike. There's a 1.5 mile trail that goes right to Bash Bish Falls. Or you can drive 2 minutes down the road to the official parking lot and hike .75 mile. The campground is also on the start of the bike trail.
Now the bad: it was loud. Granted, it was a weekend in peak summer season, but we weren't really expecting raucous groups of twenty-somethings and families. We were on the outside of an outer loop, so it was fine at our campsite and sleeping at night. Our campsite location meant we had better quiet and privacy than the people in the middle of the camp. You can't tell it from the map, but the entire middle is all open to each other - all the tents are just lined up next to each other and there's no bushes or separation or privacy.
Also, the bathrooms were clean but could really use updating.
