Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
August 3 Misrepresented accomodations over phone by Bbooher
park review stars; one to five I called about renting a Yurt. I was told it did not have running water, but was right next to a bathroom shower building and she made it sound like other people would be around and sharing the area. When I arrived after hours, it was isolated and the closest bathroom was down the road and around a curve that would have taken me over 5 minutes to walk to. The bathroom/shower was a rock building with no windows and a lot of cobwebs and it smelled. I am an older person who has to go to the restroom in the middle of the night and could not see myself having to go so far, especially for that kind of accommodations. I know it would work for some people, but not for me. I left and am asking for my money back. I will say it was a beautiful natural setting.
July 14 Peaceful and clean by Steve M.
park review stars; one to five Camped here at Eufala in our RV this past weekend for the 1st time and found it clean, peaceful and serene. Tall oaks screen and shade many of the RV pads and there is a nature center, hiking trails and a beautiful little cove with a sandy beach within walking distance of the campsites. Situated conveniently between Eufala and Chekotah near Highway 69.
March 26 would spend all my time there if i could by steven
