Watkin's Place at McCully
Secluded getaway
The Watkins cabin was a perfect refuge on the way down to see the Solar eclipse. It was Super secluded and the giant tree in the yard just a foot or 2 from the back porch was breathtaking. We saw and heard so many birds. We definitely plan on going back to do some of the trails! <3

What a great experience. They were very responsive to a day-of reservation and instructions were very clear. I didn't use the firewood provided, but what an excellent perk to be available. Restroom/shower facilities were clean and info provided nearby gave plenty of info about the property. The property is gorgeous and the Levee site is perfect for a camper van. Highly recommend and I really hope to visit again.

The campsite was very sweet and the restrooms were huge and clean with piping hot water. The cypress trees exhibited the famous knobby formations alongside the creek and ponds.
