This is my daughters favorite place to go for our family get away! They have tons of great activities for all ages and the pool and accommodations are like no other campground we've been to. It's beautiful and very clean ! They even have peackocks roaming around and for the adventurous types they have zip lining! There are tons of... More

I just spent the weekend in a cabin, with some friends and two young teenage boys. The cabin was better than perfect. Gorgeous views, completely stocked (linens, towels, dishes, soap, sponge, etc.), really comfortable bed, nice large loft for the teenagers, and the requisite tv for this generation's type of entertainment. As we don't have an RV, and the associated... More

We had the Ring of Five site for 27 people. It has 5 sites with a firepit in the center. Most sites had shade. One site had a large beautiful tree covering the entire site. The branches sheltered us from the sun. The fallen leaves provided covering on the ground. We used it for dining and gathering. Temperatures were in... More

I guess I don't care for this kind of "Camping." I wouldn't even call it camping. Too crammed together. Too many people and trailers and lights and noise. Even the tent sites, cabins, teepees looked horrible to me. If your idea of camping is staying at a state park, going for a hike and communing with nature, then you will... More

I am taking away one star because it is not free to stay here. :-) The prices on the cabin are a bit high, but I suppose someone has to help pay for that new pool. Ok, so as a kid, I camped often with my family. From what I recall, I enjoyed it very much. As an adult, I... More

Nice cabin. Nice view. But they are rebuilding the pool this Summer and there is no water in the river. You cannot find anything about this. So the kids were very dissapointed. Family Kat from the Netherlands.

First, let me start with the campground. Nice drive in, perfectly settled in the mountains so you are transported into a true camping feel away from the city. The campground has a lot to offer! Zipline, kid's playground, clubhouse if you need a meeting area for a large group, free clean, hot showers. I hear there is a pool being... More

Maybe it's because I've never glamped before but we rented the furnished tent at this facility and had a really good time. The bothrooms are alot cleaner than the typical campgrounds and the tent was fully furnished with extra seats, nightstands, electricity, a futon that converts into a bed. We even had a small microwave oven and a refrigerator. The... More

We stayed over 4th of July weekend. Stayed at a cabin here a year ago, and this was our first visit using our trailer. We were surprised to find out they changed our reservation without any notice. It ended up working out to our advantage, our new spot had a lot more shade. Overall, the grounds are maintained and the... More

We stayed in the rustic Oak Grove camping area and it was nasty. Bathrooms were extremely dirty, noise all parts of the day and night and every car that drove into campground raised a cloud of dust. We have stayed in rustic campgrounds all over California and this was by far the worst. We called the office to report loud... More
