We decided at last minute to stay @ Deer Creek for a night, just as a little mid-week getaway. Not having any expectations, since we don't know anyone that has stayed in the lodge, we were very pleased with our stay all around! We stayed in March, on a Wed night, so we had practically the entire lodge to ourselves!... More

our cottage overlooked the lake. it is dated, but quaint. the only disadvantage is the master bedroom has a large twin bed, not even a double. each cottage has its own fire pit. in other words, perfect! awesome staff from the front desk at check in to Stephanie (f & b director). every table in the restaurant has a magnificent...

Thank you for letting us know of your experience here at Deer Creek. The cottage bed can feel a little small but I assure you it is a full size bed. We are working on replacing these with Queens in the near future. I am proud you found the staff to be “awesome” and couldn’t agree with you more. Thanks... More

Our room had a spectacular view. It was large and clean, and the beds were very comfortable. Bathroom was clean and updated. The lodge was crowded and very noisy, well into the wee hours of the night. The pool was a typical hotel pool, nothing fancy, but it was VERY warm, which we loved on a very snowy weekend! The...

We stay here every year for our group's annual banquet. Restaurant is overpriced, so we take our own food for breakfast & lunch. The food at the banquet is usually pretty good. Indoor pool & weight room are very nice. In the past years, we had a room where the heat didn't work. They changed our room for us and... More

While staying at the lodge during a unique deep freeze in temperatures, my friends and I smelled cigarette smoke. We reported it to the front desk staff who then had maintenance check it out. Maintenance did not locate the source. The front desk staff called to see if we wanted to move. We accepted the offer. They offered to assist... More

The lodge and rooms were acceptable but there were other issues that annoyed us. First off I made reservations several months in advance and reserved the room with a credit card. When I received my next credit card statement I found that I had already been charged for one nights stay. Normally when I reserve motel rooms there are no... More

What a great place to have a business retreat and to bring your family. The rooms are large and the service is very good. Keep in mind that this state park was built on a man made lake that has boating and fishing. It has a golf course and some trails with camp sites. The major part of the business... More

This was a hard review to write. There were bad things and good things. I feel that all the bad things were corrected and the good things well made up for the bad.
