The canyon itself is very cool, lots of places to explore and even on a nice Saturday it did not seem crowded. The Dismalites are also very interesting and worth seeing. Staff is super friendly and they really make you feel at home. The reason I did not rate this higher than 3 stars is the following: 1. Grounds are not very well kept. It is clear they are working on several projects, yet for the few days I was there no work was being done leading me to believe it is very slow moving. Lots of trash in and outside of canyon. 2. Little attention to detail, it seems as though the owners just want to make a buck and cut every corner possible....they were understaffed the entire weekend, turn hot water off during day supposedly so day hikers do not use, but prevents campers from showering. 3. Definitely some safety concerns with the quality of railings, steps etc on the property. 4. Broken gate means they lock everybody in at night and you have to follow their schedule to go in/out which is not the most convenient. 5. Dismalite tour was very short and gentleman was not very knowledgable of them. 6. They will not let you bring your own firewood, yet they only allow you 2 small bundles of which most of it is kindling and 2 pieces of green logs and according to some locals in town this is an ongoing issue. It would be nice if the owners would spend some money on staffing and improvements, it would make a big difference!
