This was a "recon" trip. That is, testing sites for longer or future and frequent family travels. For me, the cabin was just right. Small sleeping quarters, huge bathroom. Only bad thing was there was no kitchen and supposedly no food allowed. Cobwebs, yes. Evidence of mice, probably. But, it is a cabin near the woods and the toilets flush. Best features - canyons and trails in the "backyard", access to all trails, Visitor's center, The Lodge, Pool, Restaurants - all on foot. It's outdoors, not exactly luxury but not exactly rustic. The boys left their electronics behind and became Huck Finn and Tom Saywer for a day and night.
