I go once a year for a week with about 500 other MINI Cooper owners. We rent a cabin and enjoy exploring the area and of course driving the Dragon portion of route 129.
Fontana is really fun and the staff is so helpful. The restaurant is pretty good too.
The cabins are basic and clean. They are not fancy, but this isn't a place you go for a fancy cabin. The rooms in the lodge are probably nicer if you are looking for that. The cabins are fun for groups and save you money with the kitchen facilities.
The area is stunningly beautiful and a lot of fun to explore
