Tipi-rific tent at twisselman’s

The Tipi Tent was roomy and big enough to stand up in but is shaped like a tipi, so walking around inside is not possible. Good size for 2 people. The queen size floor mattress was very comfortable, the carpet and lighting were great as was the shade-cloth and outside decking with 2 chairs. The Tipi Tent has good ventilation and zippered insect screens. It is the furtherest tent from the showers, bathrooms/toilets and kitchen but that means it is in a quiet location. The campsite had everything we needed including plenty of seating, shade, clean showers and toilets and cooking facilities with a sink. The views across the lake to the hills were beautiful and the birdlife and horses were a joy to watch. We would definitely consider staying there again.
