Most of the negative reviews of this place seemed to be about the cabins. We had an RV and put up a tent behind it, so never saw the cabins. As an RV park, this place was wonderful. The river setting and the hills around the site made this a very scenic place to relax. We saw lots of people heading down to the river for boating trips, and Kaweah Lake just before town is very nice on its own. There are many long-term residents at the RV park, and they were all very neighborly.
Three Rivers as a town is very small. A few restaurants and shops, but not much else in terms of things to do. This is, however, a great place to stay for visits to Sequoia National Park. The park entrance is just 15 minutes away, and the winding road up to the first sights is another half hour.
There's also a fantastic shuttle bus that picks you up just 100 yards from Three Rivers Hideaway. Make sure you book your shuttle ticket in advance. The shuttles go all around Sequoia at regular intervals, and they're planning on adding more routes in the future. Dave at reception was very helpful in advising us about the road work being done and everything else we asked.
The WiFi was spotty, and cell phone users note: this area only has T-Mobile service at this time, so nothing else works.
