  • We had a great time, The cabin was very nice, very cute inside and love the added deck, so peaceful, it's been a number of years since we were there and have always enjoyed our stay. It's nice that there is now wifi and central air in the standard cabins....😊 Enjoyed walking the tails also. We will definitely be back...
  • Really nice cabins, got the smaller size. Only four stars because it's a little on the pricey side. The park is beautiful and the trails are very nice. The 5$ bundles of wood are priced cheap and come with plenty of wood for an hour or so campfire. Would come again if the cabin rental wasn't so much
