This was our first family backpacking trip-- two families (four adults, a 9 year old, two 6 year olds, a ten month old and two dogs!) We had a great time! The hike in wasn't too long for the little ones although the trail is in rough shape in some spots due to the high rainfall this summer. Even though we headed out early Saturday morning, all of the tent platforms were already taken. (A first this summer, the caretaker told us.) We stayed in the nearby Lula Tye shelter. Swimming was great! The kids loved finding all sorts of water critters, salamanders, crawfish, minnows galore. We can't wait to go back!
