We'll be staying at Eagle Crest on July 5-8 and look forward to the outdoor pool. However, pictures of it on the lodge's Web site show lounge chairs but no umbrellas for shade. Does this mean we need to bring our own umbrella?
They have umbrellas but if there are alot of people there, it could run short. If you need one, bring one.
I would bring them just in case they don't have enough. My experience with the Lodge tells me they often are not as prepared as should be.
We were there a couple weeks ago and only used the pool once, but I do recall we were there in the late afternoon and sat in the shade. There are several pools and we used the one by the fitness center and bike rental. There was a nice grassy area around the pool and I think the building and trees provided shade. I don't recall umbrellas, though. I would suggest calling the resort.
