Here twice in two years and both times horrific. How bad? During first 2012 stay loud partying until 2 a.m.(f-bombs, loud music and cutting trees at midnight) culminating in a several police cars converging on the campsite next to me looking for drug felons (who'd left minutes before). Second a repeat with campers returning from bars at 12a.m. - 1 a.m. and firing up music, loud dogs and what ever the he%% they wanted until after 2 a.m. Here the no alcohol, no fireworks and 10 p.m. quiet times are a joke. This is where Allegans finest go to party the night away with seeming indiscretion.
