Had a great hike here a couple weeks ago w/ my oldest son. We arrived at the TH shortly after 4pm on Friday and at the lake around 6pm. When we got there, we found that there was only one of the five camp sites still available. Unfortunately for us, the one remaining site wasn't well suited to hammocks so we had to find a spot just off the trail to set up camp.
Later that night, one more group arrived and occupied the site that we passed on.
The next day (Saturday), while on our way out, we encountered close to a dozen more people on their way in. I'm sure that the sites were all filled up. Some were day hikers, but most looked like they were hoping to stay at the lake.

NF 90 had a section of dirt road that was seriously congested this weekend. There was a small section that was significantly pot-holed and on an incline which made it difficult for cars to pass through. As a result, many people decided to simply park their cars there and walk the remaining mile or so to the campground.
The 0.3M section of the trail that the Middle Falls rests on is closed so you'll have to go around it via the Middle Falls Trailhead and the Copper Creek Falls.
The camp sites at the Upper Falls are all right on the river and are well suited for 1-2 hammocks/tents. You could probably squeeze in a third, but it would be a tight fit.
