We are a family of 4 that were looking for a a fun cabin/camping experience near Estes and RMNP that had a few kid friendly activities for our downtimes between car excursions. This place seemed pricey, but we were willing to give it a try based on the website info. When we first called, we were told they only had two single Yogi Cabins on two consecutive nights. The first was the most basic cabin, no bathroom, no kitchenette, no table, no linens, and the cheapest rate. It only had the bunkbeds and you had to walk down to the bathroom. The next night they had the next step up Yogi cabin, for more money ....a bathroom with no shower, small table and chairs, kitchenette, and linens provided. Since it was our first time there, we decided to just go for one night and try the Yogi cabin with the bathroom and linens. The website does say Yogi's don't have linens but the desk clerk told me they would come with this cabin. I told her I would call back after talking it over with my family, We all agreed, and I called back. I confirmed all of the details with another woman, it was a different person, about what we got if we paid more the second night for the cabin the the bathroom. Again. I got the speech about the LINENS, table, chairs, and kitchenette. We booked the cabin and arrived for our stay. Guess what! NO LINENS...NO BEDDING! I was lied to by 2 different people. If you want bedding, they will rent it to you for more money! Also we got No table and no towels at the sinks. We were stuck with nothing. The camp is CRAWLING with people jammed in together. So crowded, so loud, so dense, it is a joke. Kids running yelling and crying all over the place! The campers, RV's, tents, cabins, bathrooms, laundry, and camp buildings are all packed in so tight they are like sardines. The pool is small and busy, the playground packed, putt putt very popular, basketball is 1/4 court with one hoop and overloaded with men and boys, there is no place for a walk, no place to read, no place for quiet, no place for anything but to lay on the plastic matress covers in the tiny cabins that are overpriced and so close to each other you can hear your neighbors through the walls! There is no privacy, no family time, no time in the forest or nature, all you see is ALL the cars, and all of the many campers who are there stuck with you. It is sad and you can tell it is a type of tourist trap there to make money off of us at every turn. When we finished playing putt putt with our kids, the vultures at the desk announced, "the winner has to buy ice cream!" !!!! We feel so angry, lied to, and ripped off! This place is a joke!
