Was very disgusted with my stay. Stayed with family and we where extrrly dissappounted. Staff that served us seemed drunk. 20 year olds with no good customer service. Motel was cheap. Couldn't sleep as the beds where the most uncomfortable beds we ever slept in in our lives! I think it's outrageous that they market this place as a "resort."...

I am so sorry to hear that your stay with us was unsatisfactory. We do have a no drinking and drug policy and are very strict in making sure that our staff adheres to it. We would never allow any of our staff to work drunk. Yes, our resort is rustic and over 40 years old, but that is what...

I have camped here as a child many times and brought my own kids here for the first time. We rented their trailer. It was older (but clean!). It was nice to have everything already set up when we got there and when we left, we literally packed our things and drove away! It was nice & quiet, just off...

We attended the music festival in June and had a great time at the resort. It was very relaxed and friendly. Front desk staff were very helpful in booking and it was especially nice socializing with the owners and the staff i.e.Michelle. The rooms were offered at half price. Not sure I would pay the full price along with the...

You would only stay here if you wanted to rest for the evening, otherwise I would drive another hour to find better options. The area itself has amazing scenery. The hotel itself is what you call rustic. Everything works but you feel it could be better. Restaurant food is fine but a bit expensive. The internet does not work don't...

First it is just a motel with a camp ground in a beautiful area, but if you take your time to get to know the place and the people, you will find out that there is more to it. It is not just a ordinary resort. Check out the little chapel and read the notes from people who had special...

Overpriced and underserviced lot... We paid $46.00/night (required a minimum three nights stay for a long weekend). The campground charges an additional $15.00 first time reservation fee. We expected a fully serviced 15 amp RV lot for our small motorhome as we always do in our travels through the US and Canada. We arrived to a very empty campground, which...

The nicest people, the most caring staff, breath-taking views, crystal blue lake, amazing breakfast, fantastic restaurant and clean rooms... what more could we ask for? We loved this place. Peaceful, quiet and charming. Exactly what we were looking for. The other negative reviews are by Negative Nancie's let me tell you!

I've never written a bad review before but I joined Trip Advisor just so I could write this one. We stayed in one of their campers on site -- I can't speak to the motel or cabins. What a disappointment. I don't even know where to begin. The no-cancellation policy. The dirty, rundown camper. The fact that for a camper...

We selected this campground for an outing with our in-laws. It worked well. A tip would be to bring your own firewood, as their little bundles are VERY expensive. A nice big slide for the children, the mini golf was great. (But my brother in law won by 4 strokes).

As a family and friends traveling campground to campground for a week and a half we had been to spots in the US and Canada.our last stop before heading home was this resort.

Hello savoiefred Thanks for your feedback on our Resort. As you will find in most campgrounds you will pay an admin fee to book, just like with hotels and airports. We prefer to tell our guests exactly what they are being charged instead of hidden fees. Yes there is a charge for internet as we are located in the mountains...
