We love the Y camps! Easy to book, can make up activities as we go. Works for all ages. Beautiful scenery. All good! Can bring your own food for breakfast and lunch- microwave and fridge in lodge rooms. Cabins are great for multi family occasions.
We stayed in a three bedroom cabin, took turns cooking, and had a wonderful family time. Some of the family took advantage of nearby national camp grounds for "one day" tenting; others just enjoyed the facilities at Snow Mountain. No one was ready to go home.
