"They didn't speak off camera," the insider adds. "She said the food and accommodations were terrible, and it was the worst trip she'd ever been on."

Although Gosselin's eight kids loved fishing and looking for firewood with Palin and Palin's children, Gosselin "had a meltdown" in the 53-degree weather and left before sundown, the source reveals. "She just couldn't cope."
