This had to be one the worst places we have ever stayed. Not handicapped accessible. Way too many stairs. Cabins need a makeover. Beds are very uncomfortable. No recreational activities at all, so bring your own. This place has to be low budget, or no budget. Not a great experience whatsoever.

Lets see now, 1 day before my check-in, they moved me from the Sun Angel Cabin to the Sparky's Den Cabin(which is really a bunkhouse. No beds just bunks) They didnt even ask me. Sparky's den was probably built in the 70's and the upkeep was terrible. Spider infested, bug infested, stained mattress covers, Garbage in the closets, The appliances...

“Most cabins have stairs, so ask for a cabin like Sun Devil Lodge if you have a family member in a wheelchair.”

“The studio cabins are really, really small. If you can opt for one of the larger cabins! They have patios and more space.”
