What a wonderful discovery this place is. My wife and I took our 8-year old son and 4-year daughter to Mandala Springs for Memorial Day Weekend. Even though the weather turned out to include chilly rain for much of the time, everyone still had a great time because, when it was raining, we simply shifted gears to spend quality time in their beautiful yoga studio, where we enjoyed a cozy fire, and board games, musical chairs. We even cranked up the music to create an impromptu dance class/party. Not only that, Jerry and his wife created a wonderful, welcoming vibe by offering a delicious vegan chocolate cake, along with coffee and tea. When the weather was good, our kids LOVED going out on the paddle boats (and visiting Skull Island), playing on the playground, playing miniature golf, playing by the stream, building a campfire, and -- in a stroke of luck -- catching a frog and baby snake. How great to have such a family-friendly place to camp, with such nice, modern amenities (including a VERY nice swimming pool with brand-new looking lounge chairs, hot showers, bathrooms with fancy, high-end soap, etc). All of this surrounded by beautiful hills, tall trees, and, in many places, the sound and sights of the flowing stream. Hiking trails that depart right from the campground. And nice, small grocery store and family-friendly Italian restaurant located a short 5-minute drive away. All of the staff members and other campers whom we met were great. Mandala Springs is a gift to everyone in Northern California who likes to 'car camp' with kids.
