“Lots to do for the entire family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

My husband and I recently stayed the week with our 3 year old and 5 year old grandchildren in one of the two bedroom cabins. While I will admit I have stayed in nicer places for the money, (this is why a 4 star review instead of a 5) the variety and quality of family friendly activities was fantastic. We visited the zoo, took advantage of the guided nature walks, animal encounters, and demonstrations that included cooking and ice carving. We walked and biked the miles of paved trails, went swimming in the indoor and outdoor pools, played on a really nice play ground, played put put golf, and paddle boated. We do not golf but the golf courses looked beautiful. The children were enthralled by watching deer up close out the cabin windows. Overall we had a really good time. I would highly recommend this experience for anyone with children looking for a fun vacation that can also teach them a few thing about science and nature.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

Not many cities have such a beautiful facility and park as Wheeling has here. Many different activities to do and four beautiful golf courses to choose from.

“great for walking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

tons of paved trails to walk through the area on. The outdoor pool + tennis was nice and everyone we encountered made the trip better. Not a grumpy/surly person to be found anywhere.

“Wonderful stay in the cabins”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Our family rented a 6 bedroom cabin for our reunion. Lots of room and a big kitchen. Cabin was clean. Lots of activities to do around the park including swimming, boating, golfing, visiting the zoo, or just going for a walk. We saw quite a few deer during our walk. Parking got to be a bit tricky as we shared a parking area with the cabin next door who had already checked in the day before.
