          I have stayed at the Big Basin Tent Vabins any times at different times of the year. I noticed in the off season that large and small rats try to invade the cabin and crawl on the outside screens. This really creeps me out! Is this common OR did I just happen to be there at a year when this was abundant. Thank you for letting me know. Jan Sibley
