When i got there no one was in the office and we never got a map. We went to our campsite and all the grass was overgrown. Then when we went to the pool it was dirty. No one seemed to be there. When we went to the mini golf course the gate was broken the building there had a broken window and it looked abandoned. I was scared because it seemed to have been taken care of there were signs about COVID-19 and masks but no one was there at all.

Response from Mandala Springs, the Host, on October 20th, 2020

Hi Margot, We're really sorry you had such an experience at Mandala Springs this time around and we hope we can make it up to you. Since COVID-19 restrictions began, many businesses - including Mandala Springs - had to down-size and, so, are functioning with staff that is cross-training and oh-so-very flexible in maintaining their businesses as best as they can, given their limited numbers. Again, we're really sorry that you experienced a lack of our presence at our center, but we assure you that we're very much present and doing our very best to run and regularly clean our facilities as per COVID-19 standards. If there is a chance that we can make it up to you, let us show you all that we offer and more on your next visit with us. We thank you for your feedback, Margot, as there is always room to improve on ourselves!

What a wonderful discovery this place is. My wife and I took our 8-year old son and 4-year daughter to Mandala Springs for Memorial Day Weekend. Even though the weather turned out to include chilly rain for much of the time, everyone still had a great time because, when it was raining, we simply shifted gears to spend quality time in their beautiful yoga studio, where we enjoyed a cozy fire, and board games, musical chairs. We even cranked up the music to create an impromptu dance class/party. Not only that, Jerry and his wife created a wonderful, welcoming vibe by offering a delicious vegan chocolate cake, along with coffee and tea. When the weather was good, our kids LOVED going out on the paddle boats (and visiting Skull Island), playing on the playground, playing miniature golf, playing by the stream, building a campfire, and -- in a stroke of luck -- catching a frog and baby snake. How great to have such a family-friendly place to camp, with such nice, modern amenities (including a VERY nice swimming pool with brand-new looking lounge chairs, hot showers, bathrooms with fancy, high-end soap, etc). All of this surrounded by beautiful hills, tall trees, and, in many places, the sound and sights of the flowing stream. Hiking trails that depart right from the campground. And nice, small grocery store and family-friendly Italian restaurant located a short 5-minute drive away. All of the staff members and other campers whom we met were great. Mandala Springs is a gift to everyone in Northern California who likes to 'car camp' with kids.

Amazing soulful spot. We loved out 4 day, 3-night stay. Mandala Spring was quiet, beautiful, and rejuvenating. We were concerned that it might be too focused on spirituality. It wasn't -- the lack of focus on alcohol and meat draws a lovely crowd of families and people visiting for a wonderful retreat from the madness of urban life. The pool, the pond, and the river were magical!

This place is idyllic! We swam, sat by the bonfire, played mini golf, enjoyed the creek that surrounds the property and had an overall amazing time! We will be back.

Great excuse to come out to the lake county to this very family friendly campsite with a playground, bikes, little creek with paddle boats, pool (unheated), a communal campfire (not really designed for bbq grill), immaculate toilet/hot shower trailer and even a commercial kitchen trailer and pizza oven. The kids had a great time and it is a sweet little spot to enjoy being outside for a day or two (nearby Harbin Hotsprings is a new age destination with lots of relaxation and nudity)! It was very cold, windy and wet through the night so the adults were sleep deprived, kids were freezing and we all dashed right out all the way to Middletown at 6.30am for breakfast, we clearly needed better tents... but weather aside I would recommend this campsite (I'd try the cabins next time) for young families. Thanks Jerry for your hospitality!

Communal campfire (better suited for marshmallows than bbq) :)

I camped in my Westfaila — simple camping sites with power and water, warm showers and a nice cold swimming pool. Staff is great, welcoming and helpful.

Great last minute find.

This experience far exceeded our expectations. Basically Mandala Springs is a retreat center where they let companies or whoever rent out the whole space and hold retreats or conferences or whatnot. But with coronavirus they're open to campers. So it's a lovely campus, with a swimming pool, a (very small) pond with paddleboats and kayaks, a kids' playground, a communal campfire where you can do s'mores, and bikes and pedal-powered ATV type vehicles available to borrow. There was a lot to do around here, and the facilities are lovely. Everything seems to be recently renovated and really nice compared to most campgrounds. The staff is really friendly and helpful, and there's a great vibe. It's a really family-friendly, quiet, peaceful, fun place to spend a weekend. We camped for two nights and had a great time. It was hot but we found a place in the shade. It is not nearly as dry and dusty as many other campgrounds we have been to. We have a 5-year-old and a 9-year-old and they did great. The only possible downside I would say is that many of the campsites seem pretty exposed (to the sun and other campers), but we found a private and shaded spot near the creek that was perfect. Even in a more exposed spot I'm sure we would have had a great time. There is only one set of bathrooms (they're like portable/trailer bathrooms with nice showers and stocked with shampoo, conditioner., soap, hand sanitizer, and paper towels -- much nicer than your average campground), and our site was a bit of a hike to/from there, but we didn't mind. Our site also didn't have water right there (they pretty much let you just camp wherever you find a nice spot, but that's not necessarily a spot that they have designated a campsite with water etc), but there was water very close by. All in all, we had a wonderful time and would definitely return. I'm sorry for these guys that their retreat business is on hold because of coronavirus, but it is definitely a win for campers! Maybe we can give them enough love to make up for the lost business. :)

The properties was great. There’s a group fire pit. I got to play some mini-golf, rode bikes around the property, sat in a paddle boat, took a swim in the pool and saw some deer! The bathroom and showers were new and clean. Some of the highlights:
