We booked into the resort during the recent rain and floods. It worked out very well for us as we were traveling with young children. The desk staff were fabulous in giving us information on highway conditions and allowing us to book in early due to the road closures. They also allowed us to park our RV at the back of the resort. The rooms and facilities were just fine. It's really hard to find your way around the resort and some of the hallways are musty and at that time even wet! The children loved the playground and the water slides and of course, we did too!
I have downgraded my review for one reason, my phone bill. I used the room phone 3 times using my calling card. I just received my phone bill and Douglas Fir Resorts has charged me $22.00 for 11 minutes. Shame on them! Really that is gouging beyond necessity.
While our stay was fine I do feel ripped off.
