We loved staying at El Pais! Toni was so helpful and accommodating and did everything in her power to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We work from the road and found their Wi-Fi was really strong from the covered seating area outside the clubhouse. We loved staying here so much that we booked a few more nights for next weekend!

I enjoyed the 50’s theme! The hospitality was great. Morning coffee was lovely way to start the day.

My fiancée and I loved this campsite! It was a last minute stop on our cross country road trip and I’m so glad we found it. We have a campervan so I messaged Toni to make sure it would be a good fit for us and she responded very promptly. I was able to book the tent camping price immediately. Toni came out to greet us and show us to our parking spot. She even had an amp converter to change the RV hookup to a standard outlet that we could use. The shared lounge area both inside and outside are very comfy and quirky, plenty of board games to play if you want. It was so nice having two bathrooms with showers in the lounge area too, almost felt like home. Best part is the FREE laundry and coffee in the morning! We would definitely come back here, may even try out one of the motel rooms in the future.

Toni was extremely responsive and accommodating. I needed a campsite last minute on New Year's Eve of all nights and I messaged her just before sundown to see if she still had a spot available. She responded within a couple minutes and I could not be more thankful!

El Pais is great! I’d definitely stay here again. I worked remotely, and the WiFi worked well. It was cool and rainy when I was there, so it was nice to have the indoor spaces and the covered patio with the fire pit. The coffee, eggs, and laundry were great perks. Stephanie was such a sweetheart and made meals to share. The neighbors were friendly and courteous. No one was loud, but since you’re in the middle of town there’s road noise at night. It didn’t really bother me, but I’d recommend bringing a sleep mask and headphones or earplugs. Overall, this is a fantastic value and I would have happily stayed here for longer!

Great experience! The place is so unique and one for the books— so much character. Exactly what I expected and more. Toni was very responsive and her welcome and hospitality was warm and greatly appreciated.
