Impressions:

1) For a state park the campsites are relatively narrow, but nearly all of them have full hookups and most are pull through sites.  While there is at least a section of each pad that is level, you need to be careful positioning the RV since many of the sites are on a slope.  The sewer hookups are located at the extreme back of the level area of the site making hookup a challenge if your sewer is at the middle of the RV.

2) The bathrooms are modern, heated, and kept clean.  The staff were friendly and helpful.
