The lake, gorgeous. Islands were awesome! Friendly, helpful staff at main desk and in the "Shoreline Restaurant " plus housekeeping staff were very helpful. We enjoyed all of our meals plus the pool, hot tub and the planned activities by the State Park service. We hiked the trails, took kayak lessons, learned about the flora and fauna of the area. The Park Rangers, Jason Parrie and Elizabeth were extremely knowledgeable. Everyone in our group,including a four year old, enjoyed taking part in their activities! Highly recommend that you sign up for a really entertaining and fun learning experience. We stayed for three nights and the ONLY thing we disliked was leaving!!!

The lodge is well maintained and managed. Can be tricky to get a reservation. You need to book well in advance. Ask for a room facing the lake. The others face the parking lot or are at or below parking grade level.

Visited the resort on 2/14/2014 for the Valentine's Day Dinner Special. Decided to spend the night as I didn't want to drive home after dark on a Friday night. The dinner was excellent and the service superb. The dining room staff was extremely friendly - they even made us up a to go tray with fresh coffee to take back to our room. Other staff members were also friendly and helpful.

Our room had a king bed and was comfortable for two people. Two chairs, wall-mounted satellite TV and normal amenities. I liked the bed as it had a nice firm mattress. My wife, liking a softer mattress, wasn't quite as happy. The room, along with the rest of resort facilities, was very clean and well maintained. We took a couple of quick hikes on the trails adjacent to the lodge. The trails were easily followed with gentle slopes.

All in all a very pleasant stay. I think we'll try it in November for their Thanksgiving Day dinner.
