Great location to introduce my three kids eight and under to camping. There are heated bathrooms within 150 meters of all campsites; plenty of woods to explore from the tent camp sites; and it's easy to get to. Recommend tent site 38 on the edge of the campground. We had multiple deer sightings. This campground is perfect for both the Hawksbill Peak hike and Dark Hollow Falls hike. Three out of five stars because of the volume of people--but I would return and I do recommend it.

We parked 50 yards off RTE 7 and 601. The trailhead is not well marked out of the parking lot--but it is well worn. Around 600 yards up the blue blaze trail meets the AT. Don't follow the signs to the "Bear's Den Center" unless you want to check out the hostel. Instead stay on the AT. Kids had a blast climbing on the rocks and being outside.
