I reserved two rooms, one for three nights and one for two nights, for my family. Rooms were adequate and look exactly like the pictures. One of the rooms had a renovated bathroom which was nice. All staff we encountered during our stay was extremely friendly. The amenities and activities offered are fantastic! There was a $2 technology fee per... More

Service was extremely slow. Waterloo salad did not have blue cheese or bacon as advertised, disappointed and expected more for $10.9 . Cowboy burger was good. Upon finishing meal, we waited for 20 minutes to get check and then we waited another 15 minutes to get card back. We were on motorcycle and wanted to get home before dark. Really... More

The Deer Creek Lodge is okay. The accommodations are C to C+ and it seems that’s what they’re shooting for. It’s dated (which is okay by me), but it smells musty and the overall cleanliness of the lodge is poor. The restaurant in the lodge, Rafters, is horrible! It is filthy and poorly staffed. For a lodge/hotel that charges over... More

This was a lovely stay. The room was spacious and clean, and the atmosphere very relaxing. Wildlife abound – saw plenty of deer (including fawns), groundhogs, raccoon, and birds. (The groundhogs and raccoons come right up because unfortunately people feed them.) The view of the lake is very pretty. The lodge has both indoor and outdoor pools, a game room,... More

Hotel and indoor pool area could use a refresh but staff was nice and helpful. We left a phone charger there and it was mailed back to us by the housekeeping staff no problems! There were quite a few activities for kids that kept everyone entertained.

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!

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.
