We arrived with low expectations, but were pleasantly surprised at what a cool place this is. We booked to stay in the cabins at $100 a night, which is very reasonable for this area due to the lack of accommodation in and around the park. The lodge was about the size of a small RV or large caravan/winnebago, air conditioned and had a shower, small kitchen area and sitting area. The store has everything you could need for your stay and more. The resort is half an RV park and half a lodge/cabin resort, but it works very well.
We did have some problems with our neighbours on the first night in terms of their behaviour and noise, which wasn't the fault of the resort. We complained the next day and the owner 'Joe' was very helpful, and moved us with no extra cost. It's rare to see that kind of customer service, well done guys! Would highly recommend staying here!
