  1. I do not understand how high cliff made it on a list for best campgrounds for kids. If you live out of town and havent been there, let me enlighten you. The off trails are cool, but way to dangerous for small children. The tower is neat, but no small child would enjoy trying to climb it. The “beach” is dirty, the water is gross, not ideal at all for swimming. You cant ride your bikes to swim because there is a huge hill that no child could ride with a bike. The playgrounds are very very basic. If you camp as adults, high cliff is great but do not camp there with small children!
