Park has gone down the drain

Ok, it is a beautiful place, and there are a lot of things to do during the day in the park and surrounding area...but that is about all I can say good about this place.

Unfortunately, the ownership seems to have decided to change things up, and is now taking a very rigid stance in enforcing stupid rules. If you enjoy the "quiet" peaceful setting (without normal conversation), then this is the place for you. There is a 24 hour quiet time rule enforced, and if a ranger walks by during the evening and can hear you from the drive (a few feet from your campfire and tent), then they will threaten to write you a $260 citation and possibly expell you from the park. For larger groups/families who have multiple sites, they will tell you that you must be back on your own registered site by 11 pm. In addition, the check-in workers are rude. The water provided turns to a dark yellow after it sits awhile. The bathrooms are very dirty. Also, they do not believe in cleaning up the many huge insects/spiders hanging all throughout the bathrooms. It is bittersweet that my family has been camping here for over 10 years, and have really enjoyed what this place has had to offer. We are not planning to return.
