Good campsite, but...

We stayed in my VW camper while enjoying the tourmaline fee dig at the west end of the campground. The campsite was really nice in April. The kids and I enjoyed a pizza and... read more

Our family rented all the cabins for Thanksgiving weekend for some 4 years. We relocated only because our family size out grew the cabin numbers. Trying to remember>>>seems about 8 years ago. Our experience was always very positive. The cabins were always clean and each morning they were refreshed as needed the same as ay hotel/motel. Heaters worked wonderfully; always... More

We stayed in my VW camper while enjoying the tourmaline fee dig at the west end of the campground. The campsite was really nice in April. The kids and I enjoyed a pizza and potato skins from the restaurant at the entrance and then had some popcorn before going for a late night walk and then scary stories. The roads... More

The room was dirty. The bedspread was so dirty when my grand-daughter pulled it back the sheet showed a dirty print of her behind where she had been sitting. There were rats in my son's room eating food on the kitchen counter and on the table. We asked for a refund for one of the nights because of the rats... More

I would not recommend staying in the cabins. They are in ill repair, taken over by carpenter ants and spiders. Reserved for three nights; slept in the cabin first night and in the back of our Expedition the next two nights. I'm no Prima doña and I went for the rustic, nature experience. Had I known the cabin would have... More

I think some of the other reviewers here should take a chill pill... You are renting a cabin for $65. What do you expect! After reading all the awful reviews, we were pleasantly surprised by the Lake Henshaw 'Resort.' Our cabin was cute, comfortable and bright. Except for the mini-blinds (and I challenge haters to go home and clean theirs... More

My family, some friends and I recently spent the weekend at Lake Henshaw. After reading the reviews we started looking for other options as most critics have hammered this place. There was a 30% chance of thunderstorms each day which is probably what scared the crowds away, as we were the ONLY campers there. The temperature was listed at a... More

People the green IS Algae . It happens in most warm water lakes . It's called an Algae Bloom. The reason why the sign says if the wind blows come off the lake is because rookie boat renters can get into serious trouble on a large lake . Waves are generated that can swamp rental boats! The campground has nice... More

Spent three nites there while visiting the local tourmaline mines in the area. Cabin was mostly clean and comfortable (a few cobwebs on an artificial plant, we just moved it away from the bed). They are older cabins, but a good value for the price. The lake is a short walk across the road, and like many in California, is... More

Our family decided to leave the city and enjoy a quiet weekend at the lake. My boys and husband spent the day on the water and caught not one fish! The lake has zero visability, the algae was so bad, and the smell was awful. After checking into our cabin we found it was terribly dirty. There were cobwebs and... More
