The lodge rooms at Rough River Dam State Park are modest and need some updating but we had a great time. The beds are comfy and the rooms are clean and the bathrooms are quite small but the best thing is the private balconies and patios overlooking the lake. We arrived very late on a Wednesday and did not get... More

Worth staying. Rooms overlook the lake are are basic, but reasonably well appointed. Beads are comfortable. Bathrooms are terribly small, with the sink outside, but then it is a state park, not a luxury resort. The setting is fabulous. Friendly staff, passable food in dining room.

Stayed at a nearby log cabin for a girls weekend trip. Because we didn't have a lake view but close to Falls of the Rough Dam State Park, we discovered their Marina offered $8 boat tour lasting about 1 1/2 hours. We had a beautiful day and our tour guide was delightful. He's been living on the river for years... More

Nice and wide RV spaces, but most are lower in the back (for drainage) than we prefer. We couldn't adjust the 4" drop from front to back. EZ pull-thru spaces off paved roads. The dump is also off-level in the wrong direction, so we couldn't get a complete empty of our tanks. Laundry and shower house are up the hill.... More

Had a nice stay in one of the executive cottages with another couple for a fishing tournament. The boat parking was a slight issue, but we made do (had to park in the grass). The cottage was older but had been updated and was spaced nicely from the other cottages. We had a slight problem at check-in but it was... More

We stayed two nights in a cottage. It was outdated, but clean and well appointed. There wasn't much of a view from the porch. There were only a couple of short trails for hiking. The restaurant food was good. We did enjoy the 2 hour boat trip and the live bluegrass band was really fun too. We arrived early on... More

Flew into the state park airport and walked to the lodge for lunch. Great food and service. Was quite surprised how good it was and the extensive selection. Will be going back for sure!!! The mini golf was closed for the season but they let us play anyway.

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
