Fantastic camp/caravan experience that is simple and offers great views and hiking trails right on the property. Everyone who stayed around us was super friendly and the facilities were always well maintained. Definitely recommend!

Stayed here for a night to hike. Originally planned on 2 nights, but the restaurant changed those plans. First, the accommodation is in the middle of nowhere and the stores close around 1800. We arrived at 1815 to check in, we had to drive through...More
