We just spent three nights in one of their cabins. The people at check-in were delightful; they answered all kinds of questions about where to eat dinner and where to hike (they even opened a bottle of wine for us since we forgot our corkscrew!) We loved the free coffee everyday. The cabin was perfect; it looks brand new. Totally... More

This place is the worst campground I have ever stayed at! Its the most expensive too, $55 a single campsite! The place feels more like a party venue and not a campground. People party here all night so forget about sleeping unless you have an RV and can close all the windows! Its always busy here so you have cars... More

When I think of an ideal experience at any hotel/vacation rental etc this place place exemplifies those expectations. The grounds have been well looked after and while I was there they were doing some maintenance and improvements as well. We stayed in one of their 'camping cabins' which is a structure with a queen bed and electricity in a normal... More

I stayed in Cabin 54 (two queens, bathroom). I was prepared for something old and rustic, but this place was so immaculate and felt "new", like we were the first to ever stay there! The shower was also great. The fireplace was cozy and the grounds were peaceful. Loved the river and amazing view of the stars. They gave complimentary... More

Found it to be a well run campground (cannot comment on the cabins). We had a lovely site overlooking the river, and found the staff to be friendly and helpful The bathrooms were in good shape as well. Altogether, we could have spent more time here than we did. The village is charming, and well worth any time spent there.

For a weekend getaway I've stayed here twice --- once in the summer when families were dominant, a bit Jellystone Park-like with so many children discovering all there is to enjoy in the park. My second visit was a wonderful, quiet, mid-week retreat with my wife and the serenity of the park and the cordiality of the staff made it... More

We liked the site a lot. Right in the middle of the red wood trees. Big sites and nice facilities. The welcome was good a nice lady at the gate that helped us and showed us places of interest. The good thing is that the gate is manned from 8 till 8, unlike a lot of campsites we went to,... More

Our family has camped here for the past 4 years and loved it. The campground itself is clean and family friendly. This last trip however we were shocked to find a $20 increase per site. Along with the additional car and people fees the cost per site came out to over $100 a night. I made our reservations last year... More

We drove Highway 1 and chose this place to stay for 2 nights in Sept. It was absolutely wonderful! Better than I imagined it would be. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The cabins are also very very clean and comfortable. We were in #70 which was a good spot...close to entrance, river and laundry facility. There is a... More
