I have stayed at the Lodge many times and will be going back in October with church friends. The rooms are not very large but who wants to stay inside when it is so beautiful outside and so much to do. Rooms are around $100 per night. They have a spa!! You must do the sunset barge cruise hosted by... More

The accommodations are not 5-star but good enough. However what impressed me the most was the staff. The staff here is just awesome. They are courteous, very helpful, always cheerful & I can without hesitation state that they have been the best amongst all hotels I have ever stayed. We will definitely stay here again when we visit DeGray Lake... More

While I have great memories of DeGray -- skiing, playing golf, fishing, swimming, biking and more, I have never been fond of the lodge restaurant or its waitstaff... until this year. Ashley was our waitress last weekend (July 24-27, 2014) and she was johnny, er...joanie-on-the-spot; not to mention, she... 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
