We spent 2 nights tent camping so I can't speak for the rooms, though I hear they are nice. The camping fees are very reasonable. The staff is very friendly and dedicated. And what you give up in privacy/ solitude is more than made up for by getting to hear cats and coyotes at night.

We're happy to hear about your camping experience. You certainly picked a great time of year to visit... the changing of the leaves and beautiful fall colors surround the refuge, make for spectacular views and atmosphere. We hope you come and stay with us again soon. Take care. More

This would be an awesome experience for everyone. The lodges are creatively and artfully built so that it is easy to imagine that you are staying in an African tent camp. The refuge is on a high elevation that provides beautiful views of the surrounding landscape. The big cats (lions, tigers, cougars, etc) were very vocal and could be heard... More

The staff was fantastic! So nice and was so accommodating. Was it a five start hotel? No. Was it a treehouse like cabin in the woods where you get to hear the roars of tigers and lions? Absolutely? If you are looking for hotel with the finest linen sheets, room service, and kind size bed this is not the place.... More

Love staying there. Lots of things to learn. Big cats are my life. I'm an artist and now I have a purpose to life.... let them sell my art and use it for food. I have more in mind to help. Already have reservations for next year. Adopted two cats. I love them all.

My girlfriend and I stayed one night in the okavanga safari lodge. It was a really nice room and the views were spectacular. We had deer to watch in the evening and again in the morning. Listening to the big cats at night was very relaxing. I would recommend anyone who has the time should definitely visit.

We're so happy to hear how much you enjoyed your stay in our Safari lodge! And the deer that visited is just an added bonus! It's a wonderful time of year to visit and stay at the refuge... with the views of the Ozark Mountains off the back deck... it just can't be beat! We appreciate you taking the time... More

I originally planned this trip as a birthday present for my wife. We reserved the Kilimanjaro lodge for the weekend of July 25th-27th. But due to a motorcycle accident on July 15th (and 5 subsequent days in the ICU) we were unable to make our reservation as planned. One simple phone call from my wife and the amazing staff of...

This was our 4th year staying at Turpentine Creek. The weather was perfect so we could open the windows all three nights we stayed and listen to the Lions Carol all night. The Safari Lodge was perfect as always. Wonderfully decorated and everything you need for an amazing and romantic stay. The staff was awesome and friendly. We will be... More

Great weekend! We love Turpentine Creek. This is a unique experience that I highly recommend. We stayed in the Siberian Suite. We watched 3 beautiful big cats during our entire stay. They were right outside our window! Our refrigerator was stocked with snacks. Our room was comfortable. They had the air conditioner going for us when we arrived. Friendly staff.... More

We stayed here for two days in one of the five lodges. Even though the "tents" were close still felt like we had privacy. Both nights in the back there were deer playing in the field which was awesome. The bed a tad small but comfortable. The shower got hot quick with good pressure. The a/c and heater both worked...

Another happy guest! Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay. We're sorry to hear you did not think much of our quaint, historic town of Eureka Springs. By the sound of it, you must have been visiting during NWA Bikes Blues & BBQ rally. They come in town once a year, making traffic on our... More
