This was first trip to Hawks Nest SP in 30 years. We stayed in lodge which was ultra clean and room had beautiful view of the Gorge. This lodge was built in the 1960's or so but remains a nice property. If you're in Eastern time zone and looking for a calm getaway, give this some consideration. It is in... More

Hawks nest had pretty views but we were expecting a little more from this park.It is a lot smaller than Babcock S.P. but does have some good activities.There are lot's of steps but it is worth it.The view of the bridge was hard to see.We chose to hike down to the bottom which was very steep & a little slippery.One...

After traveling many miles in the car, we were rejuvenated by the quiet atmosphere of the Hawks Nest State Park Lodge. The view over the river from the lodge's patio was calming as we watched a long train cross the river on the bridge below. We enjoyed walking down the nearby trail to get a better view of the cliffs... More

This park is very pretty but the lodge is old and outdated. The rooms and bathrooms are small, no hairdryer or coffee maker in the room. The free breakfast is one of the worst I've had. Didn't even want to chance it for any other meal - go to Fayetteville - 15 to 20 minutes away to Pies and Pints... More

Personally, our family adores Hawk's Nest. It is old school, nothing fancy, ultra affordable - the views around Hawk's Nest are unbeatable, lots of beautiful places to walk, and a nice, basic outdoor pool. The Nest will not appeal to those seeking a lot of stimulation, fancy "stuff" or modern decorations - this is precisely what I love about it... More

Had a great time visiting Hawks Nest. The rooms were clean and well cared for. The pool isn't heated so we didn't swim. We didn't spend the extra for the gorge view and I wouldn't waste my money on it. The forest view was fantastic. I almost rated it it good because the breakfast was so bad. One of the... More

You have wonderful views from the dining room as well as the viewing platforms, the restaurant has a very good section of food at a very decent price, most of all the breakfast is very good, they have a morning breakfast that comes with your stay but you can also purchase the deluxe breakfast for an additional $5.99 that is...

We stayed for 2 nights and paid a bit more for a view of the gorge (definitely worth it). The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast, even the coffee was terrible. They did have a few apples that we took with us. They did not have a hairdryer in the room but one was available at the front desk.... More

The people here are friendly and the location is great. We had a room that faced the gorge and the views were beautiful. We woke up one morning looking at clouds hanging over the river with blue skies above; spectacular! The manager, Steve, was mayor of a neighboring town and is one of the nicest men we have ever met.... More
