My wife and were in the area for a wedding on a family farm and stayed in cabin #2 from April 17-20, 2014. Being from out-of-state, not being familiar with the park and not quite knowing what to expect for a "cabin", we were duly impressed. The cabin was rustic in style but clean and well maintained with a spacious living area and kitchen. There are plenty of windows for natural light and enough lamps for more than adequate evening light. The heat/a-c/thermostat is modern and kept us warm on the 40F+ degree nights.

One bedroom was average size with a full bed and the other was quite small with two twin beds and a narrow isle in between. I think that these beds may have been smaller than twin to fit in the narrow room but they were fine for sleeping. There is no nightstand or dresser in the smaller room and this is my only niggle. The kitchen was full size with an electric 4-burner stove, full size refer, microwave, ample counter space, a dinette for four, and every pot/pan/cooking utensil/dish/plate/flatware/glassware/etc needed to cook-in. We had breakfast there every morning and were quite comfortable.

The stone back porch of cabin #2 is about 20-feet from the beautiful lake with an iron grill-stand common to most state/federal parks. The cabins seem quite remote, meaning that they are spaced far enough apart that one is not readily aware that other people are around.

Since we were there for a wedding and family-time we spent most of our time on the family farm but with our great experience in the cabin we would definitely come back to Fairy Stone State Park to take advantage of the rest of the activities available.

Fairystone State Park has been a family favorite of ours for years. From swimming, camping and hiking and occasionally searching for fairystones to our daughter's outdoor wedding and reception at Fayerdale Hall it has always exceeded our expectations. It's ideal for families and even couples to just get away from it all and enjoy special times together. I've been to many family reunions here as well as events such as a local farmer's market while fruits and vegetables are in season. I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys the outdoors.

My family of four, two adults and two small kids under 10 stayed at the park. We rented a cabin. #9 to be exact. It was the best time ever! The cabin was spotless clean when we arrived. New fridge and stove. Plenty of dishes and cook wear. The bathroom was small but CLEAN. We will be going back. We saw deer, wild turkeys and squirrels. It would be just lovely in the summer too! Ha s a huge back porch. The cell service is next to nothing so plan for that. And you do have to "leave" the park to hunt fairy stones but its a mile at the most down the road. Fun time!

We went to Fairy Stone over Thanksgiving, because we like being the mountains and enjoying a fire while it's cold outside.

We prefer the CCC cabins and there are a few of them here.

We stayed in an efficiency and the only real problem we had was the lack of a small dresser for clothes and some of the plugs for the lamps were loose and didn't reliably get power to the bulb. We also had to endure twisty bulbs, which don't shed much light. Space for two was fine and the bathroom was plenty big.

Would have liked to have been able to go into the park however unless you pay you cant play. Lots of wildlife in the area, I saw turkey and deer grouse and more deer. There is a very very nice horse camp near by that is beautiful.
