“Pleasant rural escape from the city” I had the opportunity to stay at Wihakowi Campground for three nights in april of this year. The sign leading to Camp Wihakowi clearly states “Bed and Breakfast – You Make Both” – the owner’s sense of humor is endearing.
The owners did not hover around but were often seen working about the campground. They were very friendly and always asked if there was anything I needed.
I stayed in the “Hemlock” cabin”, which was both comfortable and charming. It was nicely decorated in a rustic manner with comfortable furniture. The fridge was stocked with locally grown eggs, locally baked bread, juice and other items needed to prepare myself a delicious breakfast. The cabinets were stocked with any cooking utensils, dishes, etc. that might be needed.
The cabin had a separate bedroom with a bathroom and shower. Towels and linens were clean and available. The bed was very comfortable and afforded a good night’s sleep every night of my stay.
The cabin had a deck on the back with patio furniture where I could sit outside, enjoy the beautiful view and listen to a mountain stream. Wireless internet was provided and utilized without problem. I was pleasantly surprised that cell phone reception was very good for being in a mountainous area.
The campground has multiple cabins for various uses. There was a troop of Girl Scouts that stayed in a bunkhouse one of the nights I was there, but no noise traveled to my cabin and I was not disturbed in the least.
If you are looking for a pleasant rural escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, Wihakowi Campground is for you!
