“GREAT Family Vacation Spot. There is nothing else like it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2011

Stunning views of the Trinity Alps wilderness area everywhere you look. Pick from one of 20+ lakes that you want to day-hike to...and the staff will pack you a lunch before you go. Rather sit by the pool than hike all day? They've got one of those, too...it's surrounded by a lush meadow and an 8000' snow-capped mountain.

The staff serves up 3 great meals each day, and there is a beer/wine bar with plenty of snack options in the lodge. A really great perk is that there are TWO dinners served every night: the kids eat first, then the recreation staff takes them outside for fun and games while their parents sit down for a relaxing dinner with adult conversation!!!

The cabins are basic, but comfortable. Each one has its own bathroom with a shower, a heater, a nice covered sitting porch and everyone gets a bed with warm blankets. The kids get to sleep in bunk beds, which completes the "camp" experience for them.

I must disclose that I'm a little biased since I have been coming here every summer for 35 YEARS with my family. But then, a lot of families have been coming here for similar stretches, and there is a reason why.

Owned by a family in the SF bay area, only about 10 of the 17 week season are available to outsiders. But once you've visited, you'll feel like one of the family. Folks are very friendly and there are many returnees.
The Coffee Creek road turns to dirt after a few miles and it takes the better part of an hour on the dirt to get to the resort. But it's worth it. Beautiful setting in the high 5000 foot meadow of the Salmon River valley below the Sawtooth mountain range on the border between Klamath and Shasta national forests in the Trinity Mountains.
Great hiking trails, many of which are quite long and many with 1500 to 2000 foot elevation gain. Great mountain views, meadows, lakes. The loop trail along the upper Salmon River is the easiest to start with. The staff and guests will be happy to advise.
Very child friendly.
Minimum of a week stay but if they're under booked, as they were in our case, you might be able to sign up for less.
All three meals are served family style and, again, everyone was friendly when we visited. Remember, you are at least an hour away from the nearest town.
Culture of the place is very family-oriented and off the grid.
Cabins are spacious and well furnished. Too nestled in the trees for me to get a good photo to share.
