We booked this place because it was supposedly close to Camp Longhorn, where we had to pick our daughter up early the following morning. The camp is actually 20-25 minutes away. That distance also makes it very difficult to get any groceries or simple items, since round trip its 45 minutes.
The rooms or "cabins" are basic and small. We had a "deluxe", which was cooled by a window unit that that was inadequate at best. The blinds are thin white material that blocks minimal light. Not all of the windows are covered.
My wife booked the place and didn't feel the description on the website accurately depicted the place. She fully admitted that she didn't read trip advisor and went on what the website described.
Bottom line: would not stay here again, but somebody looking for one step above camping might find it here.
