I usually take the Miller ferry. As always, The earlier you get there the quicker it is. Before noon, you can drive right up to it. After 2 or 3pm, it gets kind of ugly. I don't think I've ever gotten there later than 3pm. And I think we waited about 45 minutes. No problem with a cooler. I've also camped there too. No place to lock things up, but I've never heard of any thefts. The only negative about the camp ground was the park nark. He was a big time jerk. Don't have any beer visable, and if you want to bring any friends up to the camp, you have to do it while he is on his camp tour. if your name isn't on the log, he wont let you in.
