Drakesbad Guest Ranch

End of Warner Valley Rd., Chester, California, 96020, USA

With propane furnaces and kerosene lamps, everything about this century-old property in the park's remote but beautiful southeastern corner harks back to a simpler time. Meals, casual during the day and rather elegant in the evening, are included in the room rate; nonguests may call ahead and reserve meals. Lodging reservations are hard to secure at this popular spot, but they may be made up to two years in advance on the ranch's website.

PROS

  • back-to-nature experience
  • great for family adventures
  • only full-service lodging inside the park

CONS

  • accessible only via a partially paved road leading out of Chester
  • rustic, with few in-room frills
