I stay in a cabin every year during winter. It's a hunting destination for me. The cabins are very nice and very comfortable. The cabin has a gas fireplace, full kitchen, room for six. Just bring your food and you're all set. Even during the winter Shawnee is a beautiful and relaxing place. The Lodge staff are extremely professional and... More

We stayed in one of the lodge rooms for two nights. We fit 3 adults and 3 children with plenty of room since it had two double beds and two bunk beds. The lodge is really nice and the employees are super friendly. We loved the indoor pool. Where most hotels keep their pools too cold this one was just... More

I took my son and 3 of his little buddies and stayed in Cabin 22 from Monday thru Friday. With the "Stay for A's" discount the rate was cut by $50 per night!! What a deal! Everyone from the reservation person on was fabulous to work with. The front desk check-in staff at the Lodge are fantastic, as well as... More

They have a super rate for Seniors- a porch with rockers that overlooks the State forest and view of the Ohio River- Canyon wine in hand, I sat and rested in a rocker for a couple of hours! The food was excellent and inexpensive..the lodge is... More

We went to visit Shawnee State Park and Lodge to plan a future family reunion. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin with a screen porch and were very impressed with the lodge and cabins. Our cabin was nicely furnished and decorated. There is designated parking for each cabin in front of the cabins. Picnic table, fire pit and grill... More

Husband and I stayed three nights over the Memorial Day weekend. The lodge is very clean and decorated with a "Shawnee Indian" theme. We found the staff to be quite friendly and helpful. Our king room overlooking the woods was spacious and very clean...everything a traveler expects and deserves. The price was good too. Not thrilled with the restaurant though... More

The room was spacious and very clean. It had the lodge look and feel to it. I was visited by a raccoon on the balcony during the night and could hear other wildlife roaming around. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was great. Dinner was way over priced and looked like it came from the frozen food isle.... More

We took our three children (6, 4, 3) to the lodge for a weekend stay. The room had 2 double beds and a bunk bed. With a discount, we paid about $220 for both nights, which was extremely reasonable. There was a lot to do. Pool, hiking, playground in walking distance. We took the kids' scooters on the paved path.... More

The large pools (indoor with 5 person hot tub & outdoor with view) were beautiful and lightly populated this hot, holiday weekend. The coffee served in the dining room (to go) is a little light & pricy to me but does the trick; service is quite friendly. I didn't stay in a lodge room, but looked in walking the halls... More

We were able to get a last minute room for one night while we were doing a weekend bike ride. It was sufficient. Room was dark, not very clean. Couldn't get room cool enough. Outside pool was nice and little snack shack selling drinks was convenient. Restaurant was kind of expensive. Food was hot and plentiful, nothing impressive. Staff at... More
