          No showers in the park. You can go outside of the park and rent showers.

          Hi, I'm planning to camp here for the 4th July long weekend (arrive Friday, Jul 3rd and depart Sunday, Jul 5th) driving up from Atlanta, GA. The NPS website lists the tent sites as first come, first serve. Any idea on how busy this site gets and if there are any "overflow" areas if the designated sites are all booked? I would hate to drive all the way up only to find out that there are no sites to pitch my tent. Also, regarding campground facilities, the NPS website lists toilets and cold showers available. Can anyone else please confirm this?
