I stayed at this camp last summer for a break away from city life with my family last summer.
I have given the camp 5 circles for every aspect.
The tented cabins were immaculately presented on the first afternoon we got there. Considering you are 2 hours drive from any real civilization, in the middle of forested mountains, the cabins were very clean, swept. The ornaments and provisions in the cabin made us feel very welcome. Every morning, "maid service" swept, made our beds and replenished our water supply (from their own fresh well). Compared to any other camping trip, the cleanliness out surpassed our expectations or experience at any other resort. The bath houses, too, were very well kept, clearly were cleaned every morning. Hot, al-fresco, private showers were a very welcome site after a long hike every day.
The location is stunning. Set in the sequoia national monument, protected from logging rights, over looking mountains, watching the sun set every evening as we ate our (incredible) meals. Such serenity.
The rooms as already mentioned were not your average camping accommodation. Some of the reviews on here mentioned that the queen size beds were merely two singles, pushed together. This was not our experience. I guess the owners invested in new matresses because ours was a queen one, and incredibly comfortable. Triple sheeted, with extra blankets if we needed them.
The staff and the food were the two things that really made our experience a special one. Although all from Europe, (UK and Poland) they could not do enough to help us out and meet our needs. The food was what you would expect from any top class restaurant. Cooked breakfasts, cereals, fresh fruit and yogurt every morning before a hike. Buffet lunch that we took with us, and then came back to a fantastic five-course affair in the open-air dining pavilion. Stunning.
And all for such good value. I have stayed at many a hotel that charges more than this, and the experience you get in a hotel doesnt even compare to the one we had here.
Couldnt recommend it enough.
