Devils Waterhole was AWESOME. My kids had such a great time we went back 3 times in a six day period. My son who is terrified of heights jumped from the cliffs and our Danes swam and ran all over the rocks. So much fun

We rented two single room cabins with air conditioning. The bunk beds were really uncomfortable, but the staff and all of the fun activities made up for it. It has a good family atmosphere, park was kept clean on a very busy weekend.

A great place for campaign, hiking, fishing, boat riding. Our family loved spending time here. Make your reservations a head of time. Make sure you pack for your campaign trip well. Stores are a bit far.
