My family stayed here 2 nights in a cabin with 3 double beds. The cabin is basically a large storage shed. It was outfitted with one overhead light, one reading lamp. a chest of drawers and a small table, and one chair. There were 4 electrical outlets. The windows had makeshift screens and flimsy locks which wouldn't stop anyone from getting in (people or bears for that matter) so don't leave valuables inside. Everything was reasonably clean, and we had enough towels and some extra blankets.
Outside we had a small porch in the back with a picnic table (which had seen better days), and a wood burner. It was however very pleasant to sit out there at night with a fire going and a large can of Foster's. We were visited by a deer, a raccoon and a few squirrels so don't leave food outside or visible inside the cabin. The electric heater was used one night as it got chilly and it worked well.
I will add to the complaints about the shared facilities; only one sink worked in the men's and there were two urinals and only one toilet for all the cabins. Completely insufficient. There is enough room in the building to install at least 2 more toilets and another sink, why isn't this done?? Luckily there are toilets in the visitor's center. In the shower you only get three minutes for your 4 quarters, so be quick and plan ahead.
The best part of the place is the small market and the souvenir shop, and a post office all located on the grounds. Definitely recommended are the nightly Ranger talks in the amphitheatre across the street; very informative and entertaining (Grant's Tree is over there too). We also got a pizza from the pizza pub on site and it was great (we ordered it to go and took it back to the cabin).
The cabins are about what you would expect; if you don't like dust or spiders then this isn't for you. For the price (92 dollars a night) it was just a bit pricey but the experience was worth it. The park is awesome and we had a great time amongst the giant trees.
