Cedar Creek also has some cabins, I stayed in one there in 2013, I think. CRS is acting up again.

Bob, I read about the cabins. Says you have to bring your own sheets and TV....

That is the strangest thing I have seen for renting a cabin....

In most KOA's, the basic cabins are just that... a structure to keep you dry, with raised/platform beds to keep you off the floor. It's a "no tent, no problem" type solution for some. You're expected to bring your own pillow-sheets-sleeping bag-whatever to keep you warm & comfortable. That said, I've seen cases where... if asked, and arranged with management prior to arrival, they will 'rent' linens for an additional fee. Never hurts to call and ask... the worst they can say is "no".

Some KOA's do offer cabins with linens supplied... and some of the deluxe cabins even have dinnerware/cooking utensils with small kitchenettes. These vary by location.

Not strange at all. having sheets didn't matter to us. We had our sleeping gear anyway from camping in our tents on the way out. That heater in the cabin came in handy. Even Fred, a yankee transplant, LOL, didn't mind turning it on a few times while we were there. BTW if don't don't want to take so long getting there and back. You can save a whole 2 days on the trip by only taking 2 1/2 days to get there and 2 1/2 back. You do have to ride a little longer than 10 hr. days though.

Yea 10 hour days has been my max of enjoyable driving/riding. More then that would be a miserable day on the road for me.....unless I trailered it with another rider and we would share in the driving. But hard to find another driver with a trailer large enough for a trike and a Goldwing.

Fred,
We may be riding together again, out there. My wife and I are planning on coming out for a shake down trip in our new-old toy hauler.

Hope to see everyone there!

Frank, Look forward to seeing you in Montrose. I do love it out there. I'll probably be at the KOA.

Thinking more about just riding the Wing out there and taking my sweet time. Capt. Bob I loved your company but you about wore me out with those long days getting out there. Maybe we can meet at the KOA and share a cabin again. Let me know what ya think.

I know your joking about the long days. We only averaged about 500 miles a day getting there. My last day coming back was 21 hrs. 27 min. and 1108 miles but I didn't have to worry about sitting up a tent. LOL
