The best part about Caples Lake Resort is the close proximity to Kirkwood ski resort. It's a decent value for the <5-min drive, coming in with rates much lower than staying on-site at the resort. Parking is free, and the cabins (stayed in cabin 9) have all the basic amenities you would need. The resort is by no means luxurious, but was comfortable for the weekend for five adults there for a ski weekend. Some things to note: no linen change except every third night, no TV, you must wash your own dishes and take out the trash, little/no phone signal, they claim wireless, but not one of the five of us could pick up the signal... again, very basic place. It was warm though and had a functioning kitchen and bathroom - except for the last day, when the pipes froze. The management invited us to use the bathrooms inside the lodge, but they didn't look particularly clean, so we went on our way. Overall, an ok stay for the weekend, but would probably be looking for some more amenities for this particular group of people if we were staying any longer.
