$34 for two people on a powered site. $1 for showers and freezing cold bathroom. We were the only people there. Free 1hr wifi per person. Unusual but not unfriendly owners. Incredible views of Lake Brunner and the mountains.

Rude, obnoxious camp managers. When you approach them they snarl "what!" at you. Overpriced cabins which only have a bunk in them. Stained sheets, dead moths and cobwebs. No hot water for dishes in the kitchen. No drinking water - at one point no water at all. No toilet paper. Regret staying here. Would have asked for money back but intimidated by managers and sure they would have laughed in my face.

Basic, pay to use showers, kitchen and laundry okay. Camp has views of the lake.

Would not bother going again. Site quite old and not well kept. Showers cost $1.00 for six minutes of water (although good shower once paid for!). However, Lake Brunner is beautiful in the morning - lovely view made up for the poor campsite (paid site).

Woman in charge (Camp warden?) didnt say hello when we get there, kept talking with friends...
Charged 28$ for a non powered site (thank you madam for "generously" offered us not to charge our girl who is 4...).
Showers and facilities were not that clean and are getting pretty old now.
The campsite faces the lake, but in between, there's the railway, noisy.
Definetly too expensive for what they offer there.
Not recommended
