We checked in on Sunday at 3:00 p.m. which is their stated check in time. We had to wait for the cabin to be cleaned. The cabins are very close together with no trees for shade or privacy. You can see directly into your neighbor's cabin when you look out the window. These cabins were advertised as being just off the beach. However, the beach closest to the cabins was full of reeds and unusable. A group of 20 somethings, checked into the cabin next to our family and drank and played loud music late into the night. One of them threw up in the women's restroom making it unusable. These people scared my children and made them feel confined to the cabin. No one policed the cabins at all to ensure their rules about no alcohol, etc., were being followed. My husband went to take a shower the next morning. In the middle of his shower the power went out. Then, the water quit. We had already paid for two more nights, but could not endure the nightmare any more. We asked that our money be refunded for the upcoming two nights, but were refused. When we complained about the noise from the other cabin, the staff said, "Well, at least it wasn't us." Apparently, a noise complaint had been made about people in the cabins a couple of days previously, and it turned out to be the staff staying in one of the cabins! If you want to have a good vacation, I highly recommend avoiding the camping cabins at Rendezvous Beach Bear Lake State Park!
We stayed in the Garden City KOA in camping cabins for two nights and were very pleased. There were trees over our cabins and fans inside them to keep them cool. The cabins were very clean when we arrived. We were close to the bathrooms and the pool. There is a small grocery store next door for any food needs. Their bathrooms are very clean: they clean them twice a day! Our kids loved the pool, but the water was somewhat cloudy. Overall, a great place to stay with a family!
We stayed in a camping cabin for six people. It was right on the stream and had trees shading the cabin. We were steps away from the pool and the bathrooms. The water in the pool was clean and clear: my kids spent hours swimming! My husband caught three fish in the stream by the cabin, and my kids caught and released a couple of crawdads. The campground is small and outside of town, which makes for a quiet, relaxing stay. I highly recommend this campground!
