  • I can't think of a better target area to close the curtain and relax. I can speak for myself and all my family and friends that there is no better place to reset your clock and unwind. I'm surrounded....  more »

  • Awesome place to stay in little cabins... There is a bar, cafe, gift shop and horse rental... Soak in the beauty and hospitality of God's creation... Pricing is reasonable but you'll have to plan ahead a few months! Everybody who works here are my kinda people and very loveable!
  • Sad to see what's become of what used to be my favorite place. They took out all but a couple of firepits so we had folks from other sites outside our tents yelling in the middle of the night. When my teenager asked them to please be quiet, adults threatened her with violence. The bar is totally out of control. Saw underage drinkers, and a bouncer roughing up some poor guy outside the bar while the crowd tried to make him stop. Apparently it happens every weekend they said. There are dogs loose everywhere which is fine but when one of our guests told a guy who appeared to be working there that his dog was cute he told him very rudely not to touch his dog which was loose in our campsite! The upkeep has gone down. Whoever is running the place now just does not seem to care anymore. I doubt we will ever go back.
