I don't understand why people are complaining. We had a fabulous time while staying here. Our room was clean and big. The area is absolutely beautiful. The water park was a blast. The kids loved it. I also enjoyed it. Especially the waterslides.

We attended a family wedding at Thumper Pond Resort. We stayed one night. All went well...except the weather...which I don't think we can blame on Thumper Pond. We were very pleased. Didn't like paying $2 at the bar for a small cup of Diet Coke...but I'm cheap. Also heard family complaints about slow service in the restaurant, but I didn't... More

This hotel has xtremely big rooms and a great golf course. It does have a waterpark too. The waterpark is nice but also needs some updating. For the area the waterpark is pretty big but if you want it for an all day event I would not recommend it because you will get bored fast. There is two water slides,... More

In general my kids love the water park and the rooms are large. However, my mom's room was not cleaned and when she called down to the front desk to have the beds made, the attendant said "no one makes her bed either" and housekeeping had left for the day. The lifeguards spent more time socializing with each other than... More

Stayed here for a work function and enjoyed the stay. Great service from the time we arrived till the time we left. Great rates at a beautiful golf course for resort guests. Restaurant had great views from the deck and you are close to but not on the lake. Nice spot!

I stayed two nights at Thumper while visiting family in the area. The setting is stunning, set among mature red pines next to a beautiful golf course. The room was large, clean and cozy. I had a delicious breakfast on the lovely, large stone patio that overlooks a pond and fountain on the 18th hole and had the best Bloody... More

My 89 year old mother and I came up from Texas to meet with her 93 year old brother and his family for three days. My experience may be a little different than other reviewers as we were here during the middle of the week so I didn't experience the "busy-ness" that many have had. Our room was a nice... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Thumper Pond one night. We attended a wedding ceremony in the area and the reception was also at Thumper Pond. We arrived around 2pm (close to an hour before check-in) The hotel staff was warm and accomodating, they had no problem letting us check in early. Upon entering our King room, we immediatly... More

We stayed on a Saturday night and resort was sold out so it was very busy. The staff was extremely friendly and they were overwhelmed by the guest's. I would recommend reservations for the resturant as we had to wait over an hour to get seated. The food was excellent and the resturant staff was also very professional and friendly.... More

My family and I have been coming to Thumper Pond for several years now, we are from Fargo and it's a close get away from home.
