The Emory Melton Inn at Roaring River State Park is a "natural" choice for those looking to escape the busy world. I have stayed at the Inn three times since 2004, and I have not been disappointed with any of my visits.
The rooms have always been clean, the staff friendly and the views spectacular. The lodge's restaurant serves traditional fare in a casual atmosphere -- it's nice not be rushed, especially in a place like Roaring River.
The park itself is great for hiking, fishing, nature and heritage tourism, camping -- of course, those who are expecting that Roaring River is some sort of raging river like the Blackfoot may be disappointed.
