The lodge is very nice for being at a state park. A little dated, but we weren't expecting the Ritz. Staff were friendly and the food in the restaurant was good. Rooms were a nice size and clean. Plenty of activities. Lake is great! Rented a 19 person boat and everyone had a blast out on the water! The only... More

very nice place, clean, friendly staff, beautiful lake and scenery, lots to do, good food. The lodge rooms are nice and I checked out the cabins also and they were fantastic. The food is a bit pricey at the restaurant but there are other options. The breakfast buffet is nice and the lounge area is nice. Opt for a room... More

The lodge is lovely, I was very impressed with that, but the lake part that is open to the public to swim, was less than pleasant! They do not have bathrooms, they have portable bathrooms. The building there looks really bad, but other than that he the beach was nice, and I love that they have a pet swimming area!

Thank you for your comments on the Lodge. I have forwarded your comments to the Park Manager as they are in charge of the beach and the surrounding area. I agree the pet swimming area is awesome. More

I’m happy you were able to see all the great things Deer Creek has to offer. We have recently added kayaks for our guest to use and that has been a big hit as well. There have been a few issues with a couple of our air conditioners this summer but we are actively pursuing these issues and fixing them.... More

We did not stay at the lodge but did not see a place to rate the campground. We stayed at the campground and like it very much. Lots of paved road to ride or walk on. Bathrooms clean etc.We would go back again. We did visit the lodge and it looks like a nice place to eat, shop etc.

This was a wonderful experience for our family. We have visited several Ohio State Park lodges and this one was wonderful as expected. The room was rustic and charming. Stayed in the lodge with a loft/bunkbeds and queen bed room. The pool was large enough that no one was crowded. Fun outdoor activities: shuffleboard, kyaking, bikes and playground. The grounds...

Let me begin by saying I will be traveling around the state of Ohio for the next few weeks writing reviews about hotels. It's a new adventure that at first sounded exciting. Now I'm starting to think it might not be worth it. I arrived at the lodge after a brief stop at the golf course. Great course and Danielle... More

This "resort" is absolutely awful! Both the common areas, pools and rooms are filthy and in terrible disrepair. The service is shameful and an attitude of apathy permeates the majority of the staff. Our room was exactly what you would expect to find at an old roadside Motel 6. For $225/night I certainly expected more. The wallpaper was ripped, the... More

We stayed here to celebrate our 20th anniversary and it was a wonderful getaway. Our room was very nice and had a great view! We rented a kayak and paddled around on the lake, took a bike ride, hiked, enjoyed the pools and hot tub. The lighted tennis courts looked great but ran out of time to play. The food... More
