Homestead property was listed as for six... "Kids" room (four berth, used by one adult and her three kids) was cramped and scarcely enough for two people. The park itself was well appointed but this accommodation, at nearly $300 per night, was way over priced for the space and facilities provided given that kids were charged at adult prices.
