Can I expect 50 amp service, sewer, water, cable TV & wifi at my site?
In short no, you are no longer at home! Our property is off grid, which means we have to create our own power, use a well for our water, and have our septic tanks pumped out annually. We offer a choice of 20 0r 30 amp sites, all having power, water and sewer hook up at each site. We are unlike most parks In that we don’t have a dump station.
In travelling here you may have already noticed that satellite radio doesn’t function along certain parts of the highway, so no cable TV is offered. We have a couple of sites that offer reception if you have your own dish, please enquire about this when you book. We provide satellite internet in the main lodge only. This service struggles – have a look at the direction in which the satellite dish’s antenna is pointing – virtually at the ground because we are on the edge of the satellites foot print. No other provider covers this area, we have the best we can get. The service is extremely slow but usually suffices for basic emailing. The Beaver Creek Visitors Centre offers faster free wifi,, as the Federal Government have installed it!
Is there a restaurant?
For our cabin guests and anyone else that does can’t travel with their own cooking supplies we offer a selection of home prepared meals in our bistro. We grow vegetable and salad crops in our own garden which to be freshly picked every afternoon for our dinner guests. For RV guests we can offer a selection of home made ready cooked meals, all you need to do is defrost and heat them through. Once the season is in full progress we usually have enough salad leaves to share and can provide you with our house made salad dressing. We have tender rib eye steaks available for you to barbeque also. The front desk staff will be happy to show you the menu.
