Such a beautiful park with the river flowing behind it and people on tubes floating!
It was a good stay even though we had no cell service. It was good to disconnect for a few days. We hope to be back in the fall!

Camping with Two Boys
We are returning campers and absolutely love Little Arrow Campgrounds ⛺️. We stayed in the Glamping tent this trip and it was very hot but that was to be expected. Tubing down the river was really fun and made July a great time to go camping in Townsend. I forgot my favorite pillow at the tent and they were nice enough to ship it to me for a fee of postage. We spoke with the owner twice while we were there and she was very helpful and enthusiastic. You can definitely tell how much love and appreciation goes into every detail at Little Arrow Campgrounds

Overall a good stay
I wish the cabins offered full size refrigerators. And also when I had to call the after hours urgent number for lock out assistance no one answered nor did they show up after leaving them a message. Luckily I had family to help me get back into my bathroom (after my 2 year old locked the door from the inside) they sent a text the next day around noon asking how they could help. Well, it was a little too late at that point. So I take stars away for that. Campground is located nicely on the river though.

great ac, but the best staff
we have stayed at little arrow several times and each is wonderful in its own way. never disappoints. the tiny houses are definitely adequate for our family, including 6 total. the beds are soft,yet firm enough . the ac worked overtime because of the heat and was great,too. the staff is always friendly and the food truck with the lobster rolls was fantastic . they were scrumptious. the river was low from lack of rain, but the pool was cool enough.

Quick stop in the mountains during a road trip
We stopped here for one night during a long road trip to relax, be outdoors, and hike.
The tiny home was bigger and nicer than expected from the outside, it has a big deck with 4 rocking chairs AND another area with a private fire pit with 4 chairs. We spent a lot of time outside of the tiny house.
They offered contactless check-in which was great due to Covid, they called us in the morning and told us what we needed to know to get in. Other than the contactless check-in that’s about as far as it went for Covid precautions. Absolutely nobody was wearing masks even inside the resort store where you can buy s’mores and other items. It seemed the resort was at full capacity, there were tons of people around.
I did not notice any increased cleaning measures inside the unit as they noted on their website. I would consider the cleanliness average. There was sauce remains on the kitchen counter and the sheets looked a bit dirty. They also had those decorative pillows and blankets on the bed which reusable items should not be used now. We did a thorough cleaning with our own supplies when we arrived.
The bed was not of good quality and very creaky, sounded like it was going to collapse when you got in haha maybe that is to be expected when “camping” in a tiny home. There was also a mouse inside our bathroom one night.
The tiny houses are somewhat close together, I wouldn’t call it remote or private. The tiny home behind us was 15 ft away.
There is a wonderful view of Townsend if you do the hike behind the dog park. It is straight up to the top so pretty strenuous but worth it. The Little Arrow website has trails listed nearby, we did the schoolhouse gap trail about 4 miles round trip and it was not difficult. We also went to spruce flat falls and sat in the river, really relaxing. We did not see any bears.
We were sitting at our fire pit one night and a large unleashed dog which looked like a pitbull ran into our neighbors fire pit area. They leashed him and looked everywhere for someone to claim him. Eventually they went to bed and let him free again then he ran up to us at our fire pit and jumped on our chairs. I honestly thought it was a bear when it was running around in the dark. Luckily it was kind of friendly but still scary because you never know and lots of little kids around could be dangerous.
The WiFi is spotty at best which is probably some of the reason you are going to a remote area but just know if you were expecting solid connection/service you won’t have it.
