I stayed with a friend nearby and four-wheeled or drove to the lodge twice for meals. The food was good and the prices were reasonable. I have snowmobiled the region from two other lodges, and plan to try Crooked Creek this year. I'm familiar with the area, and after reading a few negative reviews I wanted to add a little helpful information.
This lodge is one of a handful covering a large wilderness area. In a place like this it's lucky to even have a lodge. It is probably the premier snowmobiling area in the US, with 50-100 miles of trails in most directions, and usually lots of powder. This area is very remote, but the county road is well-plowed in the winter. The largest group of glaciers in the lower 48 is about 30 miles south and is a premier backpacking destination, Tetons are to the west and Yellowstone just north. Having stayed in a number of lodges in this region, Crooked Creek is probably one of the most developed. If you're looking for a hotel with city standards in the forest, go to Jackson Hole with the tourists. If you're looking for a rustic wilderness experience, go here. Sounds like they need to change their linens more often, probably a complaint routine for most lodges in the area, guess I may have to use my towel more than once.
