We have had family reunions for over 35 years at the campground at Zephyr, but the cabins are just not our thing anymore. We've stayed here about 4 times, but this time was the best. We had our 3 grandchildren with us, ages 7,5 and 2. We stayed here for 4 nights and just loved it! Location is great, so close to stateline, and Safeway is just down the street.
Accommodations were fun - there was a bunk bed in with the Queen bed in .the bedroom, kids loved it! Pool was cold, but we understand solar heating is coming. Hot tub was great fun for all, and the kids loved ping pong and running on the pretty grass.
Best was the BBQ area, we grilled our dinner and had story time on the swing. The setting is peaceful and lovely, rooms are very comfortable. It was great to have the fully stocked kitchen for breakfast. We visited our relatives in their cabins at the campground, but were really excited to go back to our "cabin" each night. Linens and towels were all very nice.
Robert and crew were all so very helpful and accommodating. They also rent out condos and houses, which we have done about 3 years in a row. Very nice to deal with them. They really know how to treat returning guests!
I recommend this place to anyone, all ages. One year we had my father-in-law stay with us here in a wheelchair, and it was easy to be here with him.
