Oh this was truly amazing. We stayed in the shooting star cabin, perfect cabin for two. It was perfect and I so want to be able to get in the next time I try and book! We were there during the shutdown so it was even more peaceful than we had expected,
The cabin has one bedroom - a great log fire to keep you warm at night and matches to light the gas mantel lanterns - no electricity from 10pm to midday - which is part of the experience. The fridge is gas - so makes a bit of noise - the kitchen has everything you need including a coffee percolator Outside we had a fire pit - with a big chunk of wood and an axe!!! If you run out of energy there is wood available,
We sat inside and out and just loved the whole thing. Down the hill is a small shop/restaurant which serves great coffee and fruit pies. It serves food on some days - not Tuesday and Wednesday- we did our own cooking,
This is posh camping so do take toilet roll, food and drink - and a torch. It is very easy living and so much better than a hotel outside the park.
And we saw a black bear as well as the redwoods and wonderful stars.
