    Campgrounds were clean and rangers were friendly. Conveniently located in the park. Great hikes from the campsite and access to many more. Excellent get a way from the rush of normal day and you can be off the grid.

    Are the creeks that run near Dorst Creek campground big enough for swimming and/or fishing? If not, what is the nearest swimming hole safe enough for families with teenagers? Any recommended fishing spots nearby? Are there designated bike trails to and from Lodgepole campground? Past reviewers have negative comments towards frequent bear raids and late noisy crowds due to lack of camp supervision, is this still the case? Thanks in advance for your time!
