Probably not prime time for visiting this place, I was returning to my former home town for a party with old friends. I lived nearby and had always wanted to stay in one of these cabins, so this was the perfect excuse. Being alone and booking for just one night (Friday) they put me in Cabin 12, actually a room attached to another cabin, but completely separate. First getting out of the car, I was suffused with the woodsy smells of earth and warm fires. The redwood groves tower over the campground, where there are arbors, picnic tables, and beach access on the San Lorenzo River. The office has inner tubes enticingly placed on the porch. My cabin was just what a rustic cabin should be. Modest, functional furnishings, very clean, and knotty panelled walls. When I woke up in the night, it was to total silence, and darkness so dense that I truly needed a flashlight just to find the lamp switch.
