This popular campground is often full on weekends. Assistance may be required for wheelchair-access to the boardwalk. A short section has loose gravel and a slight side slope. This will be remedied in July. In addition, the boardwalk and viewing deck may shift due to changing water and ground levels. The footpath extending to Pine Creek (Tsí Chuaa) is often wet and parts are eroding into the lake.
