This is a small campground, and right off a busy street, but you would never know it. It has a delightful creek running through it, and the sound of the creek drowns out the noise of the cars. We visited in Early May and during the week, and almost had the place to ourselves! So I can't say what it is like in the busy season, but it was quiet and peaceful during our stay. The cabin we stayed in was right on the creek, and brand new. It was also very clean. One bonus I have not seen in other cabins at other campgrounds--they had pillows! The bathrooms are older and nothing to write home about in terms of aesthetics, but they were very clean and functional. We had good wi-fi in our cabin. I would recommend this campground to others, and I would stay again if ever in the area.
