1. Where can I find the photos of the cabins?

2. What is the dress code?
In general, Forest Homes’ expectations for camp attire are driven by modesty, showing sensitivity to the concerns of others at camp. In the swimming areas, all females should wear one-piece bathing suits (no bikinis or tankinis) and that guys should stay away from wearing revealing briefs or speedos. Forest Home also limits swimwear to appropriate areas only and asks that you wear a coverup to and from the pool or lake. Closed Toe Shoes are required to participate in Canyon Park Activities.
3. Can we bring snacks?
Due to the local wildlife, guests are not allowed to store food in cars or sleeping rooms in the Standard cabins. Premium cabins fitted with refrigerators and/or kitchens may store food in their cabins. However, please put food in air-tight, opaque containers, away from doors and windows. Guests may also store “dry” snacks, which consist of packaged snacks, bottled water, sodas and juices, in the meeting room in a sealed plastic container away from doors and windows and, if possible, out of sight. If you store your personal snacks in the meeting room, please mark them clearly with your name.
