I've looked through this entire thread (just recently registered here) and enjoyed it very much, but...

It's been some time since our last visit, but I seem to remember a lot more vegitation around the sites where now there seems to be just a base of pine needles. Am I remembering wrong, or have they for some reason destroyed all that undergrowth? I remember sites being a lot more 'private', not being able to see through the woods. Now, in some of the photos, it seems you can see three rows over.

They started clearing out some invasive plants starting in 2008 I think, and have not replaced that undergrowth yet.

Sounds like something a camping trip could cure

As Dan said all the scrub plants were removed. They were replaced with small native plants, which are slowly growing. But I don't think it will ever be quite as private as it was.

Average site for 2000 loop. Biggest complaint was all the foot traffic on the sidewalk to the comfort station.

This was our first trip in our new tent. We had seen several of these on our last trip in December. It is a Coleman, Hampton 9 man tent. Hinged doors are awesome!

Lots of room, and my wife knows how to make it very homey!

Site 2030

From November 2010. The site had pretty good shade. Loop interior. About a 1 minute walk from the comfort station and maybe a 5 minute walk from the bus stop. Good location overall.

Looking at these pictures makes me want to go back! Here are our pictures from October 2009 in the 1500 loop.

Our site was right behind the bus stop-we asked for close to the pool, bus, and CS and we certainly got all three!

The pool.

I know this site well. Any time we have stayed at FW we stayed inthe 1500 loop near the cs so we have walked by this site well. I miss FW. We haven't stayed in a long time but everytime we have been back to DW we have stopped in and walked around.
