Cabins in a campground
We reserved a two room cabin and when we arrived they did not have a two room available. We were disappointed but they gave us a two room apartment down the street was newly remodeled. We did not get the cabin experience that we wanted, but the apartment was really nice.

Worn and outdated, but good value
The place was mediocre -- quite worn and outdated kitchen. Also, the immediate surroundings were mixed, with a nice river/creek nearby, but difficult access. On the plus side: it had a large sleeping capacity and offered a good value.

Not a great place at all
We ordered 2 rooms. I made sure that there is a free WiFi before making the reservation. For our first cottege, we quickly learned that the WiFi was not free and it cost us $20 extra. The second cottage was a new unit that didn’t reflect the amenities on the reservation: no WiFi at all ( although the reception person brought us the tech for the WiFi) the unit did not have a hot tub and a TV as promised on the reservation! And the shower didn’t have soap at all!!! Bottom line- we paid too much for something we never signed up for. The receptionist was a high school student who was friendly and helpful but it is obvious that the place is not managed at all by professional staff. I would not recommend this place at all.
