Michael is absolutely right (as always). Considering how many people (and parties) are happening in the campground on a holiday weekend, there's a remarkably low rate of crime. In fact, crime is pretty near non-existent.
If you leave something valuable out on a picnic table right next to a walking path, there is a chance that someone might take it. But 95% of the time even leaving something out in the open is perfectly safe.
Tents aren't "broken into". No one goes in your tent and roots around for stuff. Yeah, I suppose it could happen, but the odds are enormously against it.
Let me put it this way. When we camped at Flamenco for ten days a few months ago, we decided not to bring our good camera because we were worried about security. But after witnessing how safe the campground was (including a holiday weekend), we are going to bring our good camera with us when we return in December.
