We stayed in Cabin #3 just before Labor Day weekend. I made the booking online 6 months in advance. Having flown to CA from WA, we did not have camping gear with us and opted for the "camper's amenity package." It was terrific to have linens for the bed, a sleeping bag for our 4 year old, towels, a stove, firewood, a cooler with ice, pots and pans, s'more supplies, and a lantern. The cabin has just a foam mattress on a wooden bed frame for a couple, so we did bring a twin air mattress for our son to put under his sleeping bag. The cabin had a heater built in that kept us nice and toasty all night long. Little touches like the mirror and coat hooks were very nice. There were 2 chairs on the porch and 2 more inside with a little table. So we were able to move these chairs down by the firepit for s'mores in the evening. The picnic table outside had benches as well. The store has plenty of other supplies, deli sandwiches, and ice cream cones. We rented a kayak there too; they drove it down to the lakeshore on a trailer and supplied life jackets and a dry sack. All of the employees were extremely friendly and helpful! The bathrooms were clean and well stocked with soap and toilet paper. The showers are a bit pricey at $1.25 for 3 min of water, but clean. We also enjoyed the ranger program on volcanoes at the amphitheater (5 min walk from the cabins).
