BTW, the camping fees have increased to $12 for 1/3 of the Backpacker's Site,
or $12 for you own full-sized site. Now, let's see ... which one is better? 

Note, that there is NO bearbox available since the park service has deemed
them to be un-necessary. They recommend that campers store their food in the
trunk of their car. (Of course, every well-equipped backpacker has a car trunk
with them.)  There ARE bears so do protect your food. 

A campground host once told me that some hikers place their food on the roof
of the restroom to keep it from the bears. YOU decide if that's a good idea.
