“I wouldn't waste my time or money here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Stay away from this place. From the very start when we made reservations and asked if they had a usable boat ramp they said "yes". That is true but the water is so low that the ramp hasn't been usable for at least 2 years, Staff at check in was sour. The room was clean but the bathroom door knob didnt work and had a hook to hold the door partially shut (still had a about 3/4 inch opening) The side door going outside had paper jammed into the opening to keep the bugs out. The front screen door had to be lifted up to open, hard to do when carrying your stuff in and out. When my wife asked the staff to open the pool gate so she could sit by the pool she was told "were not opening the pool yet" the week before the pool was filled with kids swimming. What harm would it be to open the pool gate so she could sit by the pool? We decided to check out three days early and go someplace else. Since we paid for a week in cash we asked for a refund but was told "no were not authorized to give refunds" unbelievable! we should have paid with a credit card then we would have some leverage for getting our money back. The final insult came when we got home and found a message on our answering machine from the lodge requesting to charge the cost of the room key! We called back and informed them that they can use the $150.00 that didn't get refunded. Just a bad overall experience. Go elsewhere

Room Tip: a room someplace else would make your vacation much more enjoyable

We really enjoyed our stay here. We were in the RV park in our motorhome, and had a great site that was large and level with a view of the lake. We got the chance to go fishing with another couple we met in the park who had their boat with them (there's a boat launch on the property) and did we ever have a great time! The bass are plentiful, hungry (lol!) and LARGE!
