I would never stay here again. I camped here with a group. The group sites were full, and they spread our group across multiple, not-connected sites even though some connecting sites were empty. The campsites are so close together, though, that some can only be accessed by walking through others. The biggest two problems, though, were:
1) Most tent sites were on steep slopes, with no flatten areas to pitch a tent. I had to create flat bed to sleep on with my clothing, otherwise I slid downhill during the night to end in a huddle against my tent wall. Picnic tables had the same problem. Our drinks, camp stoves, and lanterns kept sliding off the slanted tables, and some were broken. One time, a table flipped up when two people tried to sit on the downhill side at the same time.
2) The bathroom situation was awful. There is only one (three stalls for men and for women) for the entire site. For half of the campsite, this means walking up a very steep slope with no paved path. And the restroom was filthy. We were there four nights and it was only ever cleaned once - the morning we left. Sanitary trash bins were overflowing and you actually had to wade through the trash to reach the toilets. I, and nearly have my group of 25 people, came down with a stomach bug at the end of our stay, which was almost certainly due to the abysmal conditions in the bathroom. Also, keep in mind that "using the woods" is not an option here due to bear concerns.
