At the Resort, we offer a variety of activities for kids of all ages. Be sure to check the calendar or contact our staff for activities scheduled during your stay. Everyday activities include basketball, horseshoes, hiking, exploring, a Rec Room with a pool table, ping pong table, Shuffle Board, 2 arcade games, and board games.
Families often bring bikes and scooters to get around and have fun in the campground. Feel free to bring your bicycles, but remember, kids must be wearing a helmet when riding and anybody operating a motorized vehicle must have a valid driver’s license.
Scheduled events include, but are not limited to, ice cream socials, potlucks, basketball, arts and crafts, and campfire nights. We often have live entertainment nights with special guests at our outdoor stage. Every year we hold a campground parade for The 4th of July! Be sure to bring 4th of July decor and decorate yourself, your pet, or your bike!
We also have educational toys and real fossils in the gift area. We carry many books on astronomy, outdoor safety, plants and animals, and the history of the Sierra Nevada for a few examples.
Campfires are a must-have at night. So don’t forget to bring roasting sticks and all your favorite S’mores supplies! We love watching families sit around a fire laughing and talking. Mr. and Mrs. Bigfoot stroll through the campground often! Can you spot them?
They are also available for purchase in the store, buy a bigfoot and take a picture of them on your travels and tell us where you brought them! Don’t forget to tag us on Instagram or Facebook!
While firewood is available for purchase, you can also gather any wood on the ground in the forest! Just don’t prune or cut down our trees, Forest Service doesn’t take those disturbances lightly.
