Absolutely amazing location, and probably the coolest tent I've ever stayed in. Plus, Rusty's Mom Toni was pretty fantastic. Will definitely be back!

Had a girls weekend at Rustys Roost. There were 5 of us and we shared 2 tents between us. The tents were spacious and clean with comfortable beds. We enjoyed the river being so close to the tents. We floated and fished. Had a great fire and roasted marshmallows. It was quiet at night, except for the train that came by several times during the night. But we actually enjoyed seeing the train. We will definetly come again. The only downside is there was only one outhouse and we had the 2 tents farthest from it. There is only one wash station and the faucet on it wasn't working. We appreciated Toni bringing us ice and wood so we didn't have to leave, since we were only there for 2 days.

We had a wonderful time at Rusty’s roost! The kids had an absolute blast playing in the river for 2 full days nonstop with no complaining or arguing! Tents and beds are amazing with plenty of room. We stayed in the trout tent. It has 2 queen beds, and a cot and we put down 2 twin air mattresses as well. Clean bathrooms and an awesome shower. The train came through several times and the kids loved that as well. The owners were super friendly and helpful! We will definitely be staying again!

Me and my 2 young sons absolutely loved being out there "camping" but having the comforts of a bed. The grounds are great and bathrooms immaculate. It was extremely relaxing and peaceful and my boys are already planning our next trip!

It was very pretty and peaceful ( when the train wasn’t going by lol) but that was enjoyable too. The beds are comfy and the kids used the cots and actually slept out under the stars one night on the deck.
Toni the host was super nice and helpful.
The only thing I could suggest is a sign indicating the overflow parking area.

We had a great time! Toni was so accommodating and a pleasure to be around! There were 9 of us celebrating my sister's Bachelorette party. Stayed at the Yellow Jacket and White Tail tents. We are now in love with glamping! Clean water and all of our needs were met! See you soon, we will definitely be back!
