It was our first time here at El Capitan Canyon. We heard great reviews from family and friends. I had a hard time trying to figure out what to expect before we left but got some great advice about what to bring (there is a list on the website). I would definitely call it "glamping". We stayed in a King Creekside Cabin which included a deep soaking tub and gas fireplace. There was of course a fire pit outside. My kids 5 and 7 loved it! Just playing with each other, hiking, BBQing, card games, etc. A great way to gain some social capital(i.e.-face to face interaction as opposed to internet socializing) with your family and anyone else you meet while staying there. Beware: lots of poison oak! It's everywhere! Sometimes it may be hard to keep the younger children away from it. Also, the beach was covered with tar. Not so fun there. I definitely recommend for a getaway to reconnect with yourself, family, and nature. Great restaurant too! Not too pricey. Bringing a wagon is a good idea too if you have younger kids because you walk every where.
