Some years have been better than others, but... More

We have stayed here many times in the past 2 years. It's a very well kept lodge. The location is beautiful. Arkansas State Parks are some of the best parks I've been to. They have activities daily for all ages. A dock. Dinning room is nice. Staff is so friendly!!! You can rent bikes and ride the trails. There are... More

Our group of 5 seniors (2 American, 3 British) recently completed a two-week roadtrip of the southern states. Our route took us through Arkansas on our way to Branson. We decided to experience staying in a state park accommodation for the first-ever time. Were we ever surprised! It was a wonderful stay at an exceptional lodge, right on the water's... More

The staff is extremely nice. The rooms are clean, the beds are a bit hard and the hotel is a bit older so the rooms can be a bit loud from hallway noise at times. Pool is nice and clean. The restaurant is very slow but also very good and always wonderful waitstaff. The swim beaches and the marina are... More

I can't speak to the sleeping rooms, I didn't stay. The meeting rooms were very well appointed and comfortable. Lake views are visible from most rooms, and are very pleasant. The banquet food was passable for both lunch and dinner. It is very close to the golf course, there are hiking paths, boat rentals, lots of recreational opportunities. If you... More

Was first time there but had been recommended. for $100 a night it was a good deal to stay in the Lodge. The park is well maintained and the lodge, though it appears to be a little older and in a wooded/lake setting was... More

If the word "lodge" conjures up a rustic log cabin, think again. The DeGray Lodge is on par with your average Comfort Suites or LaQunita Inn, but with breathtakingly beautiful scenery. Rooms are not large, but for the price, they're spacious enough. I had a wonderful night's sleep and the view from our room (#216) was wonderful. It overlooked the... More

What a gorgeous setting overlooking DeGray Lake! As newcomers to Arkansas, we were delighted to find this beautiful location. We enjoyed the pool, hot tub, lakeshore, trails, and introduction to the art of kayaking plus the areas' hiking trails. Every morning we enjoyed the views in the restaurant and the friendly staff. The food was good, some days we also... More

I visited the lodge at DeGray Lake Resort State Park recently for a meeting and it was a wonderful experience. My room was clean and comfortable with a beautiful lake view.

Right on the lake! The surroundings were beautiful and quiet. Our room was nice and the bed was very comfy. The restaruant was great, we ate there several times, and it was always good. Especially the weekend buffets. The prices and the service . . . nice! This will not be our last trip to DeGray Lake State Park Lodge.
