Bandy Creek NP CG 2015

 July 17-19 2015..... We camped at Bandy Creek campground in Big South Fork 
Spot C-8 for the peak season it wasn't very full, I'd say about half the sites were empty.
We really liked this park... they have pool that is open on WE's... its not included in the camping fee, but only $3 and well worth it on a hot day.  No diving boards, but there are lifeguards.
Be sure to watch where your stepping... it is copperhead country and we did see a baby one
We hiked  The Twin Arches Trail while we were there... amazing place.

All the sites are paved with gravel pads and fire pits.   

The bath houses are nice... each with 3 stalls, 3 sinks and 2 showers.  There are plenty of them, I counted at least 5.   Very nice for a NP 

 There was even a path from the bath house to the site.... 

 This is the playground in C loop

Some of the open sites.... I don't think it would be necessary to make reservations as long as its not a holiday weekend.
You know your in bear country when you see these kinds of trash cans and "food storage lockers"  We didn't see any or hear of any sightings.   Just don't be careless with your food.  

This was late afternoon... Plenty of shade 

Night time entertainment is Diary of a Wimpy Kid.....  (kind of a tradition)
