We've got three kids (10 & under). We were looking for a good family-friendly Memorial Day getaway. We found it. Amenities include:
- clean (but basic) cabins;
- onsite fishing pond;
- Soda Steve's (snack place -- more later);
- frisbee golf course;
- video arcade w/indoor putt-putt;
- rentable roller skates, scooters, etc.;
- tennis court;
- swimming pool, kiddy pool & hot tub (all in glass in rooms with roofs that open);
- surprisingly good gift shop; and
- food buffet
F&F was started in 1960 (making it 50 years old for those of you bad in math). While it's apparent that this place isn't brand new, they've done a fine job of keeping the place up to date. It's not fancy. It's not for stuffy people. But's it's a great family-friendly hangout. Many who come bring their own ATVs or golf carts to putt around . . . although it's not that big, so motorized vehicles are not needed.
Soda Steve's was particularly impressive. It's clearly the newest part of the resort. Free Wi-Fi, shakes & malts, burgers and amazingly good coffee (and I am a psuedo coffee snob).
The onsite restaurant claims to have "33 feet of all-you-can-eat". We didn't partake as our cabin had a full kitchen and we are believers in making our own food. But it seemed that the restaurant was quite popular and well liked.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention that it is a short distance to Lake Tenkiller (one of Oklahoma's most beautiful lakes). We spent a lot of time at the lake. But the resort was a comfortable "home base".
If you like snooty, five star places, you'll probably find fault here, but otherwise, it's a great value for families looking for a clean, wholesome getaway within a stone's throw of one of Oklahoma's most beautiful lakes.
