At Wintersun we felt welcomed! They are so friendly, lovely and helpful whenever they can. We have never had showers that were cleaner than here! And they offer a wonderful evening dinner at the camp kitchen! We enjoyed it so much and our kids were happy too. Also to add a super laundry with very new machines and also big dryers. Lovely park, lovely town, it was great

$5 for HUGE fluffy pancakes. Great way to meet other campers and talk about our shared travels. Dean is a great host. Really appreciate the small things he does - like put a/c on in cabin & fridge was cold before we arrived. Really good shower. Can't fault a thing. This place is a destination, not just a one night stop
