We took the family up to the barrel cabins for the second time and we had a wonderful time. The lake was amazing and the sounds of the forest was phenomenal. We barbequed on the grill and even made s'mores. The bugs stayed outside and the cool air stayed inside. Everything was clean and supplies were sufficient. These were the good points. The lady at check in was not very enthusiastic about her job, very blah. The lodge has something to be desired. It is very old fashioned and stuffy. There was a musty smell around. There was a lot of construction going on that impaired the flow of movement about the lodge. The food there is very expensive for what it is. Don't expect any extras in the cabin and i didn't. I was planning to experience this the same way I would experience an RV vacation. The overall experience would still make me come back because of the actual park, trails, falls and the price of the barrel cabin was worth paying considering we were so close to Helen and those amenities. River tubing was great but for a cheaper deal on the same river I would go with the pink rafts of Helen (you will know what I mean when you are there).
