Wow! We've stayed at a few resorts but Mantrap is amazing! The owners are very friendly and helpful, the resort is full of activities for kids and adults, the lake is great fishing, the cabins are the cutest cabins I have ever seen and very clean! I could go on and on! I was so surprised to see only one review on Mantrap so I had to write one. I recommend this resort highly!
