Stayed in 2006 and 2013, in the river front cabins. This facility suits travellers happy with basic accommodation in a beautiful setting. Whilst accommodation is very basic the pay off is the natural environment and wildlife. Watching the elk cross the river and move through the park is a highlight.
The river front cabins suit couples without children. The bathrooms present a challenge for people with restricted mobility (e.g. difficulty lifting a leg over the shower hob) and cannot be recommend for persons in wheelchairs (both bathroom and cabin maneuverability are restricted). Access to the park requires a car although fit people can easily walk to town (just have to dodge the elk).
I have read the negative comments and have not had the same experience although cabin cleanliness is an area they could improve. The river front cabins are about 20 metres from the bank, which is steep and high in places, but the views are excellent (see picture). The price is slightly high given the cabin facilities.
overall recommended as long as you are happy with 1 to 2 star accommodation as a trade off for environment and can stay in a river front cabin
