My husband and I only stayed one night. It was enough for us to know we will be taking a weeks vacation there next year. We loved our room and view. We will not be going to Florida next year. We decided we can have a great time right there! We had the dinner and breakfast buffet, which was excellent!... More

I stayed here from july 13th thru 15th. I was sent to stay by my employer for training. The rooms are alittle outdated but clean and acceptable. The only problem i had was the eco airconditioning there was a card above the thermostat that stated that the unit sensed when you were in the room so if you were not... More

What can I say, we'd arrived at this paradise minutes before a storm hit on the 7th July and was immediately shown downstairs to their restaurant for safety. The front desk clerk was so professional and helpful from the time we phoned him 20 minutes earlier until we were finally able to check in to our room. The restaurant was... More

We have stayed at the lodge on three different occasions already this summer. Rooms are basic but comfortable. The restaurant is good! We have eaten there five times--and have had really good service and delicious food. During the week, the restaurant sometimes offers "daily specials." One evening we had the pork loin special; on a different evening, we had the... More

We were very impressed with the professionalism and hospitality of the staff. Our 4-year old loved the well-maintained pool. The room was clean and comfortable. The food was good, exactly what one would expect at a family restaurant.

Overall this is good park for a weekend getaway. I stayed in a 2bdrm cabin with friends in mid-June. The cabin was clean and prepared for our visit. Unfortunately parking was limited and difficult in the cabin area, as there were many other vehicles and boat trailers congesting the road and driveways. When we arrived at the park (with golf...

Had our annual family reunion here over the weekend. We usually go to Barren River State Park. In my opinion Rough River is better. The pool is much bigger, cleaner, and they have a kiddie pool that is actually up and running. They also have a well maintained, although small, beach area that we enjoyed for a few hours. The...

THANK YOU SO MUCH for the wonderful stay! We brought our border collie, so we had to stay in a "standard" cottage! It was perfect and beautiful! So peaceful and quiet! We can only imagine what the deluxe & executive cottages are like! Staff at the lodge are awesome - and at the marina, too! Highly recommend the chicken breast... More

I was in the area on a house hunting trip. A friend and her husband invited me to fly up in their Piper for dinner. We landed at the lovely little airport chocked down the plane and walked a block or so to the Lodge. It was lovely and had many places to relax if staying at the Lodge. The... More

Unfortunately the once-stylish facility is now overall in pretty rough shape with the exception of the banquet hall. Each of our meals at the resort restaurant were either bland or simply down-right terrible, deep-fried, frozen fare. We also made the mistake of reserving a "cabin" instead of a less-awful hotel room. The cabin was decorated in frathouse castoff style with... More
