We stayed in the #1 Yurt at the end of September. It's near the pond with all the bullfrogs but they didn't bother us. I'm not that into the great outdoors but even I enjoyed it. I wish we had stayed in one up the hill, a little closer to the bathrooms, but it wasn't too far. I appreciated the... More

Love the fact that you get a bed, fridge, heat or fans and a coffee pot. Chairs and table out by the firepit as well. Bath house is good, shower and toilet are private. If is cold in the shower there is a heater to warm things up. They provide soap and shampoo too. They provide towels and linens which... More

Accommodations are fantastic! Peace and quiet on the slower side of the smokeys. What did a lot of hiking in the park and we hit the leaf color just right. We had a great fire each night and enjoyed the company of other campers. Highly recommend.

We rented Yurts #7 and #8 which were both on a higher rise and had views with #8 being the better of the two. The view was much better as well as the decor of the Yurt. Our biggest mistake was arriving in the dark and with the low lighting in the area, it was very hard to find where... More

Stayed in Yurt #7 overlooking the gorge, in a tree-house setting. Beautiful views. Woke-up to 37 degree temps - could have used a larger heater. Fun place for families. Only real concern - the grounds are not lighted at night. The lights are in place but the do not work. Made walking the camp grounds at night a hazard.

Bathrooms were convenient and clean! We took the two hikes, one to the lake and the other to the waterfall. The instructions in... More

My husband and I had a great weekend in the yurt. Great amenities (mini-fridge, coffee maker, etc.) for "glamping." Short ride into town and near rafting/ziplines. Bathrooms were decent enough for outdoor facility. Other guests were quiet during quiet hours.

This was a truly unique getaway. Clean and comfortable but still with the feel of camping. Beautiful scenery! Activities and small city nearby for everything you need. Highly recommended for something different to do for a vacation. Great idea for couples, families or groups.

“Yurt 5 was located close bathroom. 7&8 are the ones with the views, but furthest from the bathrooms & to their campfire areas.”
