Wonderful spot to run through. Don't try and go on foot in the winter. Roads are closed and unplowed.

The campground is a good place to stay for only a night or two. The sites do not offer much privacy, but there are hot showers and outdoor sinks for washing dishes. The best part is the proximity of Tanglewood for shows.

Best inexpensive lodging in the Tanglewood area, but also relaxing, beautiful, and fun. Other yurts are very near, so you'll hear/see other groups and their cars. If you want privacy, you can close screen flaps, but then you are hot inside. I brought box fan,...More

We've stayed at OCT. Mt. 4times in as many years and plan to return many more. Each of our stays has been in a yurt. For us there is no other way to enjoy being out doors. All the camping fun while having a bed...More
