Salt Fork Lodge and Conference Center

Reviewed 8 September 2012

This was our second stay at Salt Fork Resort for a family reunion. All of our adult children and their families stayed as well. When you arrive at Salt Fork State Park you have an incredible drive of seven miles to the Lodge. The lake and wooded areas are just beautiful. Be very watchful for deer and other animals.

The park offers numerous activites, fishing, boat rentals, horse back riding, hiking just to name a few. There is the Kennedy House to visit which has a lovely view of the lake. There is also a cave to explore, but caution is advised. My son was very interested in the hike that looks for Big Foot, which meets in the park on Saturday evenings.

The Lodge is just what you'd expect in the middle of the park. It has a rustic quality but also very luxurious. The rooms are very clean, spacious and the decor is wonderful. There are two pools, one indoor and one outdoor for everyone to enjoy. There is a playscape and sand box for the kids along with volleyball and shuffle board to play. They have a very nice play room for the kids with video games, ping pong and air hockey. The Lodge also has a very nice variey of activities and crafts for kids of all ages. If you want you can put your handprints on the wall in the activity room. Our grandson cannot wait to go back and see his handprint that he did on our visit in August 2012.

If you have a large family there are plenty of areas available for you to gather. There is a nice size area by the fireplace, another by the large screen TV or just above the indoor pool where everyone could meet to play games. The resturant has very good food for a reasonable price.

The outside grounds surrounding the Lodge are beautiful. There are some trails that you can walk just outside. Watch for the deer as there are many in the area. As my family and I walked one of the trails we were so surprised to discover when we got to the bottom of the hill that a deer was just above us. My grandson was very surprised as he stood on the sidewalk one afternoon that a young fawn that still had spots came running up to him as if to say hi. We also had about eight deer show up during our private bonfire for the family.

I would strongly recommend a visit to Salt Fork State Part and Resort. You will not regret the drive once you see how beautiful it is. We are already talking about when we'll go back

This is a beautiful and well kept lodge at a very reasonable price. Rooms and amenities are great as is the swimming pool. Most people seem enjoy the food but we did not but the waitresses and servide are great. They need to get fresh brewed coffee in their restaurant for example.

Great place to go with the kids. Lots to do, swimming and arts and crafts, plenty of play areas. Staff was great with a food allergy with one of the kids, cooked meals perfectly. Would recommend and go back again.

Room Tip: We stayed at the lodge, which was close to the pool, would like to go back and try out one of the ca...

I would rate this a 5 star hotel...This is an extremely clean lodge with many activities for all ages. (Volleyball, tennis, basketball, shuffleboard, swimming, golf, game room.) They offer many planned activities for kids off all ages, tied dyed T-shirts, sand candle making, coloring etc. (At least when we went during the summer months- check with the lodge during school months.) I loved the fact they have a free bonfire for all every other evening which includes a free marshmallow roast. (Not many people showed up which made it perfect to relax & enjoy the fire.) Went on a few hiking trails & enjoyed them too. All rooms have a nice sized small freezer & refrigerator in the room. The microwave can be found by the indoor pool. "To go" orders in the restaurant is priced right. Food is delicious both for the restaurant & carryout orders. They also have a two romantic secluded areas with fireplaces (you push a button to turn on the fireplace..) to relax... Fantastic atmosphere both indoors & outdoors. Plan to return soon!!!

Room Tip: Did not order room service or go to the spa...

My stay at the salt fork was overall okay. The daily activities were aimed at kids under 10. The cabins had a great location but there was profanity written all over the bunk beds. Also the blankets appeared dirty. Do not stay during shark week because there is no discovery channel. The restaurant timbers is awful! The hostess was inattentive and couldn't handle the amount of tasks assigned to her. It took 20 minutes just to put our name on the list. There were many tables left unbussed with breakfast plates after the restaurant reopened for lunch. In the end the food was not that bad but, the poor service will keep me from returning.

Very nice accomodations. We had a King size room and the bed was extremely soft and comfortable! Room was very clean! Restaurant was pricey and food was not that good. Grounds and Lodge were quiet and clean.
