This was our first Texas vacation and we wanted to have a lodge experience to offset the city experience. WOW!!! This place is great! The food was amazing, the rooms were perfect in every way and the activities were phenomenal! We toured the vast property in a Kawasaki mule, learned how to shoot and had fun competing who could hit... More

I kept teasing my wife with how "rough" this place was going to be, but she knows me too well to have been very concerned. But needless to say, she was blown away with the accommodations and the friendly service. We had a package deal that included dinner and breakfast which was a memorable experience that we will never forget.

My husband and I dropped in Rough Creek Lodge for drinks and had a light bar dinner. Sal our bartender was personable and suggested a wine I had not tried before. My husband had a skinny margarita that was made with fresh lime on the rocks. We shared a smoked turkey sandwich with hand cut fries that was the perfect... More

Rough Creek Lodge is definitely worth the price! Every member of staff is friendly and knowledgable. The food is excellent and you will never run out of things to do. There is plenty of entertainment for kids / families and adults too. I love this place and we will certainly be back again and again. Top notch!!

We've been here several times and it's always been a relaxing stay. They have all the amenities where it counts. The beds are the best ANYWHERE. Makes it difficult to wake up and enjoy the incredible breakfast buffet. Food here is amazing. The Chalk Mountain Margarita is severely delicious as well. Overall great place!

This was one of the best places we've ever visited near the DFW Metroplex. The facilities & amenities were great. The Mustang Cabin where we stayed was such an amazing experience. Being a cabin, it was very comfortable & the kids loved the way the rooms were furnished. The staff were incredibly courteous & hospitable. My husband being a vegetarian... More

It is a 5 star hotel in the middle of nowhere. The rooms, the amenities, the restaurant are all incredible. I'm sure that all the other reviews have said the same thing. On a previous stay, our kids really enjoyed the zip lining, the pools and the kids dinner (which is great for a couple having a romantic dinner with... More

This resort hidden off the beaten path outside of Glen Rose, Texas is a gem. I would say it was a well kept secret except I think it is no longer a secret. The rooms are luxuriously rustic. The restaurant could compete with any fine restaurant in any city. The staff is wonderful. They make you feel they are truly... More
