  • I stayed in the big yurt with group of five women and seven 7-year old girls (12 total) for Girl Scout camp/retreat. Our activities included panning for gold (polished rocks), rock wall climbing (the ...  read more »
  • My boyfriend and I stayer there for 2 nights. It was so peaceful. Our camping spot was very spaceious. It was pretty neat to see people zippling from a few feet from us. The paintball area was so much fun. Everyone was so nice and friendly. I like the fact that each Camp Dakota member had a Camp Dakota shiry with a nickname.
  • My friends and I came here about a week about on a road trip through Oregon. The only drawback from this facility was the employees. The employees were making comments about the guests and making fun of them in front of us. A guide named SPARK even had the nerve to ask my boyfriend, if my best friend and I were lesbians. She than explained it was a really weird couple because one was mean and the other was really nice. My boyfriend kindly told the guide , he was my boyfriend to her disbelief. She than watched my best friend and I like a hawk to see if we had lesbian tendencies. I'm not homophobic at all thankfully. I can only imagine what homophobic guest might say when they made such assumptions about them. I don't think it should matter if a couple is gay or straight. They came to enjoy this park together not looked down upon, or judged by the employees. If this girl SPARK is going to continue to make comments about guests than i think should she be confined to making lattes in the coffee bar where she can talk about guests out of ear shot. When guides or tours are on top of those ziplines talking people down below can hear you. I don't know if the zipline employees think they are above hurting peoples feelings with their actions. They should know everyone below can hear the jokes your making at their expense. I would have enjoyed this event with my friends alot more if the employees didnt sour the day. Hopefully the manager will talk to his employees and fix the situation so no other families feels judged or humiliated by the employees.
  • We didn't know we had a hidden gem in our backyard. It turns our we only live about an hour away. Great family environment. The guides and staff were very inviting, friendly, helpful and safe. They stressed this was a family camp which I really appreciated. I love the fact that was not any Wi-Fi!!!!! my kids were kept busy and never even missed there devices. good variety of activities, my husband was kept very busy treasure hunting, my youngest surprised me with completing the brave course, I even joined in paint ball, and we all did as a family and had a blast. The staff was very friendly, and accommodating. The yurt was spacious, clean and hair hockey and foosball tables were a very nice addition and used a lot. We will definitely be back, already are planning a day trip before the summer ends.
  • Excellent time with my whole family at your camp! Something for everyone except maybe my nieces . A play ground with slides and tires there are some pretty cool playgrounds out now for littles to do would have been good. But otherwise great experience we will be back!
  • I have been going here off and on for several years now and have always enjoyed it, however, as it has grown it almost seems to be too small of a space for everything it is trying to do. I still enjoy it, but it gets very busy on the weekends. It is an adventure park with paintball, ziplines, rock wall, disc golf, so lots of families head there on Friday to have a little outdoor time. I get that, and while it is fun, it can suck to have disc golfers wander through your fire pit area as you're relaxing at the end of the day. We spent two days in Yurt 3 - it has a pool table, and is on what I believe to be the quieter area of the campground, although it may have only seemed that way as we went in the middle of the week and left right as the weekend craziness was getting into full swing. Our kids enjoyed the activities and we also enjoyed the camping atmosphere - sitting around the campfire, BBQs, etc. My one qualm is that they do not enforce quiet hours. On my last two visits there have been groups of people drinking and staying up late. They do sell earplugs which can help, but it would still be nice if they would enforce the quiet hours the same way the enforce the leash rules, or any other rules. We generally enjoy ourselves here, and will probably go back, once we forget how irritating it was to hear someone yodeling at 2 am.
