Great location & size, terrible condition

Location and layout off the Madrone GS1 site was great. However, upon arrival at our 2pm check-in time, we found the facility to be in terrible condition. The bathrooms were unusable, I actually dry heaved from the stench when trying to use one of them. The prepping tables had food on them and were sticky from the previous guests, which only aggravated the yellow jacket, bee and fly infestation. My nephew was actually stung by a yellow jacket. Trash was everywhere on the ground including underwear and socks from previous guests. The trash bin was overflowing with garbage. We waited until 7pm (hoping someone would come by) before tracking down an employee to service our campsite. He cleaned the toilets and only removed the garbage that was overflowing, but we still could dump our trash in the bin. I understand that he was limited to what he could do with the trash situation, but it would have been nice if the trash collector had been scheduled to do a pick up after the previous guest use. They didn't come until the morning we left. My family camps regularly at Giant Gap but decided that we wanted a more privacy and a larger campsite so decided to fork out the extra cash and reserve a group campsite. Our overall experience was not worth the $400 we paid to camp here.

We stayed here in a Tent.
