Our rooms were neat and clean. Front desk friendly and effective. Not real fancy , but very sufficient . Pools were clean. Good pizza and hotdogs. main restaurant was closed for the winter. I can say the food was great when it was Marlin Moon , not sure what its called now. We all had a very enjoyable stay.

My family and I stayed here and we were disappointed. The indoor pool didnt open til noon. Pool was so dirty. Rooms were not that clean. Diner was not even open to eat. So loud. Walls are paper thin. We will never come here again

My husband bought a special on Groupon for in March and I thought what are we going to do in the cold! We didn't arrive till 10pm and the desk clerk was still waiting on us. They close early in the off season and since we'd booked thru Groupon, they didn't have our phone number. The resort was exceptional and... More

Thank your for your honest comments. I will touch on a couple of the issues this guest encountered. We do at times have guests that will open the sliders at the indoor pool and it will impact the air temperature. Guests that are not swimming tend to find the 84 degree temperature warm and do not realize how this impacts... More

This was our first time staying at FSK Family Resort. We loved it! We vacationed with 4 other families and a great time was had by all. The indoor pool was awesome. We enjoyed playing mini-golf, basketball, and on the playground. The location was perfect. All of the staff members were pleasant and the lifeguards were engaged with the children.... More

We have stayed at FSK twice now and are planning another trip this summer. It's small enough to be cozy but big enough that there is plenty to do. We have come both in summer and in the off season when only the indoor pool was available and the kids still had a great time. So close to the outlets... More

Took advantage of the locals special to enjoy a family weekend away for our daughter's birthday. Rooms are a bit dated and smelled a little musty. Indoor pool was awesome for the kids even though the water was a bit cold. Locals deal is great. Four wristbands and a free pizza. Will definitely come again.

I was looking for a fun place to take my girls for a "daddy daughter weekend" while Mommy was out of town....I found FSK resort online and was impressed with the indoor water park and reasonable rates...I was a little worried that a lot of reviews talked about the age of the rooms and the noise level in the rooms....

Our first visit to the resort this past weekend was great! The indoor pool was a big hit with my 6 year old daughter. It was hard to get her to leave. Glad to see the water was shallow enough in the kiddie area to splash around with my 7 week old as well! The beds were pretty comfortable although... More

Main attraction is the pool for the kids.. the pool was cold when we got there. We could not stay in and enjoy what we came there for. I was so upset that we left the resort shortly after checking in. The rooms there are cozy, but it took hours to warm up. This is in March. I will not... More

I have waited to respond to this post as our General Manager had emailed them prior to the post informing them of a full refund and I emailed them after the post appeared on TripAdvisor. It is always my intention to speak or email with any guest that was not satisfied as it is very impersonal using TripAdvisor to communicate.... More
