We pulled our camper out there so I’m not sure what they’re like. If however they’re on the same level of quality as the rest of the park they’ll probably be really nice.

Only cost not included on activities is the bike rental and stables. All the food was reasonably priced. I believe the pancake breakfast was $3. Drinks and sides extra.
