          Rocky Road is a very nice place to stay. Mac is a very friendly guy who has great stories to tell and cooks awesome food. Furthermore, the 'tents' (which have a very comfortable bed) are nice and clean. Last but not least, do not forget...More

          The stars are always a good surprise. Looking up at them on a clear night you really feel part of the greater universe out there. You don't have that feeling in or near cities anymore...
