Love the cabins and the lodge. Huge outdoor pool; great indoor pool. Disliked that they are no longer providing bars of soap in cabins.

This is nice restaurant with one of the most scenic views I've seen in any restaurant! We were there the second weekend of October for the fall color, and it was spectacular! The food was good, I had a Rueben sandwich, my wife had fish. Both were very tasty and well prepared. The soup of the day was vegetable beef,... More

Thoroughly impressed with the accomodations and the overall cleanliness of the park. Beautiful scenery and very peaceful. We hiked, canoed, fished, sat by the fire, and just enjoyed the woods. This park has alot to offer and the staff were most courteous. Food was very good as well.

Shawnee is another jewel in the state park system. We had a very nice, level campsite and enjoyed the quiet only interrupted by the birds twittering away. TV service is limited to PBS.

Stayed in the cabins in July 2014-- we had two cabins split among multiple family members. The cabins have been redone in recent years, with upgrades including fireplaces, cable tv in the bedrooms, and a small fire pit outside of each cabin. We were a bit amused in the room with the bunk beds at the placement of the TV--... More

The lodge at Shawnee state park is by far hands down the best place around to stay. It's that simple. I've stayed at comfort inn, holiday inn, almost made the mistake that is super 8, this is it! Especially for what they charge, it's a bargain.

Great place, beautiful outside pool, beautiful scenery. Had something for everyone- good food, pools, hiking trails, golf, and game room. We had cabin for 3 nights--only downfall- forgot about potential for ants---make sure to cover sweets.
