Had another great stay in loop 4. We were at site 100- all woods behind us with those wonderful big rocks for the kids to climb on. Sites are spacious with a nice wooded buffer in between. Saturday night was pretty noisy after quiet hours, but with family noises not drunk party-ers. It was all quiet by 11:30 and the loop pretty much emptied out by Sunday. Loops by the lake seemed to stay pretty full. We took some nice hikes - artists rock and sunset rock are moderate hikes with great views, pretty rocky but doable for younger kids. Ashley falls was ver nice too. The hike to the top of kaaterskill falls is short and easy but there is no longer a trail to the bottom - too dangerous. You have to drive back out of the campground to 23a and park, then walk along the road to get to the trail. The bottom can get a bit congested but it's still beautiful. Wildlife a-plenty- deer, beaver, chipmunks, and yes, a bear. Husband saw one as we climbed up the hill behind our campsite and then that same day one (may be the same one ) came through the campground and tore apart a cooler left unattended on a campsite (even though you sign a form when you register that says you WILL NOT leave any food or anything that came in contact with food on your site!). It didn't pay the slightest bit of attention to anyone and ran off when the ranger came by and we didn't see it again (thank goodness!). We can't wait to come back!
