My extended family had the most wonderful time!!! We loved the accommodations; my children thought the loft in our cabin was amazing! We were just steps from the Lake. We loved the water sports in such a warm lake. We got a fabulous family picture on the beautiful property! Any time we weren't on the water, my 3 boys were...

I went to this resort getaway with some buddies last fall and it was amazing. Cabins were clean, hospitality was top notch and the location was perfect. We used water recreational vehicles, ate great food in the clubhouse and enjoyed the atmosphere. A truly memorable experience. Would highly recommend it to families, friends or anyone else looking to get away.

I brought my wife and three sons to EHR. My kids absolutely loved the cabins with the little loft where they could hide away. Owner Micah is amazing and kind and treated me like family! The lake is warm and there are so many activities that can be done. Can't wait to go back, maybe for the coming eclipse?

Heard about this resort from a friend of mine. Decided to make a trip out of it with friends I don't see that often. It was better than the expected. Jet skiing during the days and cookouts on the deck of our private cabin at nights. We decided to make it an annual destination to meet up.

I just booked my weekend for this beautiful resort. My family and I look forward to our weekend on the lake every year. We love the cabins. They are clean and have everything you need to feel like you are in your home away from home. The staff is amazing. The boys love to fish and we all enjoy taking...

The prices are crazy expensive for Southern Illinois. $4.50 for a can of beer is expected in Chicago but not in So Il. The owners/management is very rude, also. The pizza is average and over priced as well. Overall not a welcoming environment unless you liked to be treated poorly.

I attended a wedding at the Egyptian Hills Resort this past weekend. While it was a beautiful place to have a wedding, the staff was unimpressive and VERY UNPROFESSIONAL. At the end of the night, Micah (owener/management) had the BRIDE in TEARS - confronting her on the dance floor about an issue that occurred at the cabins. There was a...

I've been going here now for 2 years and this resort never disappoints. My friend owns a cabin here and a boat so we love to spend time here. The resort always has something going on to entertain people and their service within the resort is very friendly too. I recommend this as a great place to pass the time...

This place once was a friendly resort. New owners think they are on Lake of the Ozarks or even better. Unfriendly and unresponsive manager/owner. Hardly any parking and accommodations sup par. If you are looking for a hillbilly wedding or event this is your place. Forget about launching your boat, ramp stinks and trailer parking is a pain.

micahmerrill, Manager at Egyptian Hills Resort, responded to this review

Brad, We understand that raising the rates for the boat ramp has upset some of our neighbors, but as we continue to grow and improve the resort we are forced to make some difficult decisions. Unfortunately, parking is a major issue for us and as our event business continues to grow it has become more and more difficult to accommodate...

My now wife and I knew we wanted to get married outside. We could not decide on a venue until we attended a wedding at Egyptian Hills. From that moment we know this was our place, so we booked it. From the start the staff was fantastic, helping us with every problem and concern. We also had a planner help...

“You can request to have a lake view, but from where I could see, they all have a lake view. It is not a very big resort so I think all the views are good.”
