We camped near Devil's Swimming Hole for several days.  The weekend would have been unmanagable due to the crowds we witnessed even late on Sunday, but Monday was a whole different story and we loved it.  We covered all of the trails available, some several times.  My dog was helpful when some of the trails became questionable, keeping us on track.  We saw several deer on the trails, and scores in the park.  My difficulty rating encompasses the difficulties in determining trails,occasionally, and he searing sun, even early in the morning.  The views are worth it, hands down.  Wear a hat.  Clearly my favorite place to hike in this area, with or without camping.
