Great price, great assistance from the folks running it, and we even found some oyster mushrooms in the woods!

We had a great stay in the Bambi cabin! Rhonda was very welcoming and helpful. The bathrooms and the cabin were really clean and it was a great place to get away to for the weekend.

My husband and I spent a week here. We had a wonderful time, and the cabins felt so secluded and peaceful.

Rhonda and Roberta were great hosts!

As the title indicates this is a primitive cabin; come equipped! But if not do not fret as Rhonda is very happy to rent you a lot of material (at a very reasonable price) and is a very helpful host; she gave us very detailed instructions on how to get there and recommended a bunch of fun trails and activities to do in the area. The cabin was quite clean and welcoming, and the fire pits outside perfect for grilling food. Overall we had a magnificent stay!

The cabins were private and kept us dry when it stormed outside!

This was a great primitive cabin stay! We stayed in the sunflower cabin which was bigger than we expected and kept us nice and dry when it rained. One thing I wish I would have known before going is you do have to drive a one way gravel road with some uphill to get to the campground which was slightly intimidating, but Rhonda was so nice and made everything a breeze! Overall, it was a great stay and I would definitely recommend!
