  • During the summer months, average highs are typically in the mid-80s and lows are in the 60s. T-shirts, shorts, and swimsuits should definitely be on your packing list!

  • Many items are already provided for you in your cabin, including bed linens, towels, washcloths, and a starter supply of paper towels, toilet paper, and trash bags.

  • The vast majority of our cabins come with washers and dryers, so you can cut the amount of clothes you need to pack in half by doing a load of laundry during your vacation. Detergent is not provided.
