This place is overpriced. We stayed in a cabin that is to accommodate 10 people. This must be referring to just sleeping. The parking was limited and space on deck hardly sits 10 people. There is no table inside. Limited counter space to prep lunches and dinner. BBQ grill piece was placed in the oven. The oven looked like it... More

I wish we had read reviews before booking this "resort". We paid for a site for 25 people and it was the size of a postage stamp, covered in large rocks you could barely walk across. We were literally one foot on both sides of our "site" from other people's tents. Our site could fit no more than 5 tentsThis... More

I'm going to save everyone some time here and just say all the reviews on here with 1 star are 100% accurate. There is seriously something wrong with the owners of this POS to allow their names to be associated with this level of filth, incompetant and disrespectful customer service, and fraud. Im WARNING others especially with children to consider... More

This place is terrible. We reserved a cabin and float trip for the weekend and upon arriving were told our cabin had storm damage so we'd have to stay at a more "primitive" cabin or could get a refund. The lady working there, who couldn't even put out her cigarette to talk to us, showed us this cabin that looked... More

I guess you could say we where lucky to stay in a cabin because the cinder block buildings looked like a prison that should be shut down so I can only imagine they where worse then our place. Anyway our cabin was absolutely gross, the fridge was broke, mold in the bathroom, questionable air conditioner, broken chairs that looked 30... More

We went tubing and the experience was good. I will say that Bird's Nest charges prices higher than most tubing companies in the area (or anywhere), so beware that you can rent from many other places for less. Tubes shouldn't be more than $15/person. Note, though, that you can bring your own tube and pay only $10 for transport. I... More

We stayed at the Birds Nest Lodge for two nights - July 31 and August 1. There were five of us families total, 19 people total including 9 kids. Four families tent camped and one family had a camper. I always rate the places I visit on various aspects. In summary, this was the single worst camping resort I've ever... More

This place worse than terrible. Don't let the pictures fool you - they obviously don't clean these cabins. The smell was unbelievable!!! I don't expect much when I rent a cabin. But, I sat on the couch and the waft of awfulness made me sick. I won't even get into how nasty the rooms, kitchen and bathrooms were. When we... More

We spent this past weekend staying in a cabin for two nights and floating on Saturday. The float trip was wonderful...this did not make up for the awful experience we had at the cabin. We were promised two cabins with kitchenettes, air conditioning, and access to a hot tub. When we arrived they had trouble finding our reservation. When they... More

We had a great time. Staff was very friendly and said if any problems to let them know and they would fix it. We will be going back in August and can not wait. They are always open to any suggestions and are slowing trying to update all the cabins.
