We camped out and had a great time hiking. We ate the seafood buffet on Friday night at the beautiful lodge. Try to get to the lodge to see the remarkable sunset. Trails are easy, but not always well marked so download a trail map.

The buffet is so good . The prime rib is so delicious. I'm planing to stay in the lodge next time . They have buffet Fri ,Sat and Sun. The view from the lodge is breathtaking ❤️ We drove by the cabins and chalets but we didn't see inside .

We weren't impressed with the worn conditions of the lodge. A moderate update or good cleaning would take care of that. However the views from anywhere on the property are beautiful. Sunrise and sunset are breathtaking. That and the food make staying here well worth it.

We rode out to the lake for the first time and was taken back by the spectacular views and the gorgeous day we had. We went into the lodge for the views and discovered Sunday Brunch for $17.95. It was simple, but filling. A choice of Prime rib, BBQ chicken, catfish, pork ribs, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, cheesy potatoes,...

My parents had raved about how nice this place was for some time. We finally had a chance to go with them on a family trip. This place was incredible. The décor had a very rustic charm. The lodge was full of lounge areas so you could always find somewhere to go. Nothing beat the views. We ended up getting...

I was taken here on a first date since I had never been before. The views are amazing and the atmosphere was very calm and peaceful. This place would also be a great idea for a wedding/reception. The menu isn't expansive, but it's worth it juxt to have different experience.

Prime rib was cooked perfectly, but under-seasoned. The fried chicken and catfish could not have been better. Bagged salad should not be served at a nice buffet, even with a few cherry tomatoes thrown on top. Vegetables were okay. $3 for a beverage is a bit steep. Sysco desserts - but numerous choices. Honestly, a little disappointed.

Thank you for your review about our restaurant at the lodge. I would like to point out we have never used "bagged salad" on our buffet, or anywhere in our establishment. Or salad prep gal is really good and passionate about her display of salad; I can see where this may have appeared to be a pre-fabricated product. Your comments...

This was such a surprise. I've stayed in lots of state park lodges and this had to be the nicest one at which I've stayed. It's very resorty, with ziplines and golf on site. It was clean and comfortable, and the view is gorgeous. There is a lovely on-site restaurant which is convenient. There were only two little things that...

Thank you for your wonderful review about our park. I was a little unclear on the windows statement. I wasn't sure if you meant privacy for the lodge rooms or the resturaunt.

A huge lake, outstanding views, lots of hiking trails, great restaurant and lodge. This place is a must see. No matter your interest, it likely has it. It even has a zip line attraction now. The restaurant has a view of the lake, but be sure to visit the big outdoor deck for the best views.
