Report: Drove up on an early-September Saturday (stopping for directions every twenty minutes) and secured the last of 150 campsites. A folk-dancing society was having an event there for the weekend and had practically booked the entire place. Fellow at the general store said the crowd was usually about 30% of that and asked girlfriend if that was her 'husband or boyfriend.' Weather was lovely. Crashed the folk-dance. Nice old hippies. Would recommend reserving a campsite
