Everyone is always super nice and helpful. The food at the restaurant is great even with the current limited menu. The hotel is cozy and clean, and the view is AMAZING. Great trails, cool little lake with playground. Neat little Native American artifact museum. Plenty of places to cookout. One of my favorite places on earth to get away.
Watch which trails you plan to hike. Some are not for the novice hiker. I hiked an advanced hiking trail and loved it. However, it was definitely not easy. If you are taking small children research ahead to make sure you are hiking a trail that they can walk. I will definitely be back.
