Did do a smores night when we were there. What was odd that even though it was summer, kids tend to keep to themselves, games area was mostly... More

Every two years a family reunion is held at Fontana. I have attended twice and hoped for a better experience the second time. But alas, the same limitations exist, and I do not think they will change. We stay in a cabin with family members, and they are woefully furnished with what any resort should consider minimal. Not enough coffe... More

Just left FV after spending the weekend there for a wedding. We stayed in a cabin that was pretty comfortable. Beds were comfy and it was nice having ceiling fans in the room!

What a great place to stay. Off the beaten path, around the hills you will find a great place for families. We had great food at one of the restaurants. We are use to paying for everything extra.

Beautiful property. We were promised 4pm check-in, finally got into room at 5:40 due to lack of adequate housekeeping staff. Room was nice, bathroom tiny and outdated. Small single cup coffee maker but NO micro, NO fridge, NO hairdryer, NO iron and board. Pricey meals in lodge included NO sides, not even crackers for the soup, which is extra. No... More
