This was like staying in your family’s backyard, in all the best ways. Nice hookups and the best people you could ever meet. We were lucky to be staying right after Christmas and got to see all the decorations. It’s like something out of a Hallmark movie. Every inch of the house is decorated and beautiful. We were invited to a cookout with the neighbors and everyone was so sweet to us. Highly recommended. We hope to go back.

As soon as we pulled in, Ginny was outside to greet us. She immediately welcomed us and helped us position our rig for the night. She then handed us an electrical cord and helped us with a badly needed water connection (boy did we need a shower). We just stayed one night, but Ginny was out in the morning to say hello, take our picture for her scrapbook and say goodbye. I highly recommend Candy Cane Corral and plan to stop by again if we are in the area,.

As during our previous two visits, Ginny met us at the driveway and guided us to our spot for the night. We had a nice conversation with her and Perry. We appreciated the 50 amp electrical service. Our spot was level, the neighborhood was quiet, and we were happy campers.

What a wonderful place! Ginny showed me where to park. It was easy to maneuver from Highway 8 up their gravel driveway. The space was level and I was able to do a full hookup! Ginny offered an extension for my electrical cord but i had just enough length to reach the breaker. I would definitely stay again!
