We stayed last summer to celebrate my cousin's engagement and I've always loved the park and the lodge. It pays to remember this place is a state park, not a commercial resort, and it's subject to whatever budget the State of Indiana allots. We come for the natural beauty and the views, and the park always delivers. We initially booked... More

Wanted to start getting my kids (4yrs & 2yrs) use to nature and ease them into camping by a stay in a cabin. It turned out my kids were really not ready for this so the staff at Abe Martin moved us into the lodge without an issue. Christi and her staff at the lodge are excellent and very friendly.... More

We were in area to explore IN Hwy 46, thought it was good central location. Lovely wooded drive to lodge from highway. It is nice enough, but looks a little tired, needs some sprucing up. We stayed in lodge room, had tv and wifi, comfortable bed and view of woods, clean. Ate dinner in restaurant, very basic food and ambiance,... More

The room was not as clean as we would like but we told ourselves that it is a park lodge not a resort hotel. We bought Clorox wipes and clorox spray to clean the bathroom. We covered the sofa with a sheet in order to feel comfortable sitting on it. The staff were mostly pleasant but the check in staff... More

We were in town a few hours before our check-in at a different establishment and decided to kill time here. We were able to buy two bracelets for ourselves without being guests of the hotel. I think it was about $20 for the two of us. It was a fun place to relax and play volleyball for about an hour... More

The water park would be a great place for your children with the zero entry area it is great for the little ones. I am glad you were able to get passes to take part in the aquatic center as we can only sell pass at certain times depending on occupancy. More

I've stayed in rustic cabins at other State Parks with less amenities than this one, but our group was extremely disappointed in this cabin. The entire cabin was very dusty, including the tables, lamps, and curtains. The sheets didn't fit the bed and kept coming off during the night. The bathroom was just gross with mold in the shower, cobwebs... More

We just stayed in the lodge with our grandchildren for the weekend. My problem is not with the facility it's the way it's run. It is very obvious that they do not have enough help. Our room was adequate size for the 5 of us. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. We checked in on Friday afternoon and... More

Pretty clean and cute for a rustic cabin... But don't think you're gonna get in early, most likely they will be running behind on check in time. Try to get the cabin facing the lodge, we got one facing the woods, so our broken down picnic table was in the the woods with poison ivy. But even the ones in... More

We reserved one room and needed another when we showed up and they were very accommodating with that. The hotel staff is very friendly and the restaurant food and prices are good and there is a lot to do in and around the lodge. However, when you leave make sure you have all of your belongings. When we called the... More

We stayed for one evening after spending the day of activities in and around Brown County. The hotel was older, but the rooms were clean. The staff was friendly and helpful.
