The amenities are great. 3 clean bathrooms, cooking area with grill, large covered picnic area, multiple chimneys with seating, canoe, row boat, paddle boats, 2 showers, horseshoes. It’s in the middle of no where, but we drove 1.5 hours into SLO to go to the beach.

The pond is a little slice of heaven. Bathrooms were cleaner than ours at home. Communal kitchen and tables were great and made meal times easy. Our 4 and 6 year olds loved running around and looking for frogs. Glorious pine trees to camp next to. It was a wonderful camping experience!

Staying at the Twisselman Pond was amazing! Ethan and Adriane have really done a great job to make you feel accommodated. The bathrooms and showers were great and the pond was so peaceful. It was so nice to see the stars at night and have a small fire. Thank you for everything.

We had an awesome trip at Twisselman Pond. It was nice for group camping with 3 families and we were shown around by the hosts and they had a lot of extras there including a sink and bbq for us to use, paddle boats to put around the pond in, fire pits, a trough pool, which was awesome, and the kids had a great time fishing and walking the dogs. We also got amazing sunrises and sunsets, and a TON of stars at night! Glad we brought our telescope. We will definitely be back again!
