Stay way!
Nice Location apart from the rail way and residential building blocking the lake view in places. Cabin smells like cat pee, carpet and sheets are stained, it was cold and all three of us were still itchy from mite bites days later. Facilities are filthy and owners rude. Do yourself a favor people stay somewhere else.

$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).
