  • This is a very beautiful place. It makes me wonder how our ancestors ever made it. Beautiful in the summer winters would be a very different story. It’s definitely worth the tour. Plan to take an entire day.
  • It is OK. Same scenery throughout with little change. Best walk is near visitor center, cliff edge. Not worth spending a night. Cedar Cabins are inside the park but AC did not work and it took 2 days to fix. Food is bad and it is fly infested. Windows don't open or stay open, service bad. Check in is 4. Not 355. Not 359..4. They just don't care. Try calling the desk direct (not the reservation number, the office). They put you on hold and leave you...never come back. Simply not worth the stay in so.many ways. Just do the drive through off I90. Go in one side, out the other and be on your way.
