I made reservations for Valentines Day this year for the restaurant and lodge...I have visited all of the lodges at The Arkansas State Parks. I have been pleased with all of them until I visited this lodge! The lodge is very plain and does not feel special at all for the price! I ended up paying for a room that... More

Thanks for sharing your comments about your recent visit to DeGray Resort Lodge. We are truly sorry that your experience was less than satisfactory. We have recently renovated 60 of our 94 guest rooms, and unfortunately you stayed in one of our rooms that was “in transition” and had not yet been completely renovated. It had elements of the new...

It's been a while since I've visited, but the rooms were standard hotel style, comfy and clean, and very quiet. Staff were helpful. The restaurant was fine, adequate for a study break. Of course, the best part of the lodge is the location. The view from the lodge is beautiful and serene and I enjoyed reading by the lobby fireplace... More

We visit Degray lodge regularly and have done so for at least 14 years. There are so many reasons we go but I'll just share the ones everyone can experience. First this is a state Park lodge on an island in the middle of a state lake that's absolutely beautiful. Over the last decade or so the management has continously... More

Our room was a standard hotel room with a comfy king bed and two side chairs. The view from our window was spectacular. The lobby and the adjoining restaurant also had great views of DeGray Lake. We hiked the Island Trail and the Green Heron Trail and photographed water fowl and mirror images of pine trees reflecting in the still... More

We stayed for our summer vacation and everything was beautiful. My kids absolutely loved the entire time. We went horseback riding, swimming, pet an alligator, so much to do that we didnt finish and are ready to go back next summer.

I stayed at this hotel for a work conference. The setting is beautiful for a conference because the common rooms face the lake. The dining room food is just average at best. The staff was wonderful and very friendly.

Here for a conference. Front desk staff and conference setting was wonderful. Rooms are small, but serviceable. Maid service often spotty, towels and coffee went unreplaced more than once. Restaurant food is serviceable but limited and waitstaff is hit and miss. Consider bringing your own food if you are vegetarian or have any dietary restictions as there are no other... More

We spent the last weekend in October at DeGray Lake Resort and we had a wonderful weekend. The operator whom we spoke to when we reserved our spot was very helpful in directing us to the perfect spot. We were very happy with her suggestion. The resort has beautiful grounds, from the manicured golf course and the beautiful lake to... More

We started to stay two nights and ended up staying 4. We loved it. We had a view of the Lake, short , easy hikes, and somewhere to go for dinner on the night we didn't want to cook. AR should be proud of their St Parks. We were in a 42 foot RV, electric and water. NICE!

Quiet, clean, attractive with plenty to do. Staff is competent and helpful. Lodge restaurant is great for dinner and breakfast. Only stayed one night, but wished we had more time. There are short trails around the lake which make for nice after-dinner walks.
