This lodge is in extreme need of refurbishing. The linens, pillows, carpets, baths, and mattresses are well worn and need to be replaced. The bathroom was in extremely poor condition. The state of Arkansas should close this lodge and do a complete remodel. The accommodations are not worth the price.
I would encourage a day trip here, as the view is great and the history of the lodge is interesting. However, I would recommend lodging somewhere else. I gave this lodge a "2", one for the friendly staff and one for the wonderful view.
