Lots of activities for families. Wear hiking boots on trails. We did a guided hike but trails are not well marked.

We enjoy all of the facilities that Oglebay has to offer. We especially like to walk the paths around Oglebay to take in the beauty of all the four seasons. There is plenty to do in the park. Professional and amateur golf courses, par three and miniature golf, paddle boating on the lake, horseback riding and much more.

I don’t know if it was the fresh mountain air, or the ever lingering scent of millions of blooming flowers, or the excitement of discovering another part of our beautiful country, but we slept like logs through the night.

We were a bit worried on the drive up to the resort as we traveled through a few unkempt neighborhoods. However, upon arrival, we were very pleased. The grounds are stunning - the property is massive and spectacular. We stayed in the Wilson lodge, the Kline side. Yes, the rooms were a bit on the older side and showed wear and tear but they were sufficient as we spent very little time in the room and don't need many amenities. I traveled with my 13 year old son and he had a blast. We took advantage of several zoo encounters and my son was able to hand feed kangaroos and wallabies, several bird species as well as prepare food for the animals, take a guided tour of the zoo and learn about the animals from an experienced guide. It was fantastic. The zoo is very impressive and has enough variety to enjoy. We were looking forward to the aerial obstacle course but learned on Monday that the course would be closed until Friday since the college kids working the attraction had to go back to school. We were disappointed so I sent an e mail to the resort and the operations manager, Mike Potts, responded with an offer to open the attraction at a time that was convenient for us and staff the course so we could utilize it. This was way above and beyond our expectations. My son was able to do all the course for over an hour and even had an experienced course employee help him navigate and conquer the obstacles he was apprehensive to tackle on his own. Todd was his name and he was very encouraging and helpful to my son. Also, a operations supervisor names Tyler was also part of this arrangement as he fitted us with the equipment and oversaw the course while we climbed. We ate several meals at the resort and being a former chef, I was impressed with the quality of the food. The selections were enough for both of us to choose from in each venue. There are many pleasant and helpful employees we encountered during our stay. A highlight for my son was hand feeding and petting the deer that came from the woods each night to feed - it seems they are used to people feeding them and it is a nightly ritual. My son loved this and I was in awe of how many deer actually came up and would eat from our hands. Truly amazing - not sure where else you can do this outside of a petting zoo. These deer were wild, living in the woods. Awesome. Overall, we loved this place. We swam in the pool at Crispan, rode the Swan boats, kayaks, played mini golf, toured the zoo, climbed the obstacle course, watched the movies at night and had a blast!! We vowed to return each season of the year to try all the activities offered in different seasons and promised to make an annual journey to the resort as father and son. What a great ending to a wonderful week.
