This was our 3rd year in a row staying at Deer Creek in one of the cottages. This year we were in Cottage 25, it had some updates that the cottages we stayed in in previous years did not. As always we enjoyed the marina and rented a pontoon boat, swam in the indoor and outdoor pools, and enjoyed the... More

Just stayed at the historic Harding Cabin for the weekend. The historic part is the fact that it hasn't been cleaned since President Harding stayed their. Mouse droppings everywhere, mostly in the kitchen cabinets. Cold air returns clogged with lint and hair. Drinking water so dirty you cannot see through it. Poison oak and ivy growing over the rails of... More

We rented a cottage at the last minute and was able to get Cabin 1 for a few days. Although many of the other cabins, overlook the lake this one did not but had a forest view from the screened in porch. Staff at lodge were very friendly and helpful. One morning we rented a kayak and had the lake... More

My wie and I gad talked about doing a four day weekend somewhere, namely the beach. We both love laying around doing nothing around a pool, or on the beach, and going out for dinner. Unfortunately, there are no ocean beaches in Ohio, and the nearest one is 9 hours away. Two of our four days driving? Yuck! We started... More

Spent three nights in a "cottage" because two rooms at the lodge would have been several hundred dollars more. The cabin, though at leat 30 years old was in relatively good shape. Clean with AC! One issue I would mention is the shower head! Come on, spend $5 bucks and get one at Walmart. Even a cheap one would be... More

Arrived, checked in, and was given a different room that I had reserved. Got that straightened out. Over my three day stay I had no toilet paper, two towels for six people, and some days I had coffee but no cream or dirty coffee cups. Wallpaper peeling from wall, rust in tub, dirt and mold behind the bathroom door. Faucet... More

Nice location but the place is very dirty and the service is terrible. Didn't get our room cleaned the first night and there was trash on the floor in the room and our small deck overlooking the pool was filthy. Food at the restaurant was ok but it takes about an hour to get your food and the wait staff... More

Three of my kids and I were there for an adoption reunion on July 10-12. The state park is beautiful and there are 2 pools and spas at the lodge along with plenty of activities available. We loved the meeting area off the check in space. The rooms are old and in need of repairs. We couldn't open one of... More

This is a State Park in Mt. Sterling, Ohio. We stayed 3 nites and our bill was over $700.00. We had a package deal where they gave you $50.00 a day toward food. The food is not much and rather high. The service is poor.. Of course we are an older couple and we went there with our Grandaughter and... More

We came to stay in a cabin. The cabin pictured on their site is NOT the cabin you'll stay in! The grounds are beautiful and the place has the potential to be incredible, however our cabin was extremely overpriced for the quality offered. They are outdated, but that's not a huge deal. More importantly, our cabin had a mouse that... More
