  • This spot is really nice for hanging out. They have kayaks, paddle boards, canoes and Peddle boats. This is a very leisurely river so you can enjoy without a lot of wake so if you want to try kayaking...  more »

  • I went there for the annual Blues Festival. I even volunteered to work part I'd the show. In return I get a free ticket, lunch, a short and have some fun. I was early getting there at 7 am. I had breakfast then went to check in. There was about 5 or 6 of us at the moment and the idiot they had running the check in booth was so full of him self because he got to tell a few people where to sign in the clipboard and had out shirts. One guy in front of me was looking at the couple of stacks of shirts and Rodney started screaming at him not to touch the shirts. That was his job to hand out shirts, Rodney walked over and handed him the exact same shirt he had just picked up. The guy and I started laughing. Two minutes later he's yelling at an 80 year old woman for stepping past an a frame sign before he called for the next person. She was so put off by his overbearing attitude she was trying g to get her friend to come and pick her up. She didn't want to be bullied by a loud mouth black guy that might hit her. She was almost in tears. It was already 80 degrees and expected to hit over 100 that day. I stayed. I never got a break, lunch, or my ticket for the rest of the day. Rodney was mad that I had taken a break after 5 hours in the direct Sun with zero shade. We didn't get any cold water nothing. I got a beer and was headed over to Rodney to tell him I was in need of some shade, food, water and a rest. He told me I wouldn't get to stay because I was drinking a beer. So. No pay, no water, no ticket, no lunch all after I worked 5 hours with no break. I told Rodney I wanted the number to the office to talk to someone that is in charge. He refused to give me the number. He said he was GOD. I just walked out and drove the 2 and a half hours home. I will never go back there again.
  • Awesome BBQ Burger. Chili is terrific just enough heat. Home made cooking. Great service.
  • It does not have that "Family owned" feel anymore. It just isn't the same. Everything is more expensive as the new owners have to make up for the purchase price, overhead goes up, prices go up. I used to enjoy being able to take the family there and not spending an arm and a leg.
  • Perfect location to park & launch our kayak. For those wanting to have a beach day, they offer a snack bar, beach you rentals etc. Good option right in town.
  • This is Guerneville's best kept secret. It has got to be the prettiest property for camping and it is just a block of the main Street The property manager had done the most amazing job making sure this property is a safe and reflex's the owners vision. Great job guys!
