Stay away from 1st floor pool side. Noise from tv or speaking was not an issue, but walking on 2nd floor our room sounded like someone was moving furniture above. Patio view was a stone wall. Evening entertainment was a family of 5 racoons eating from the garbage can outside the room. Nice size pool..loved it. Lounge was a plus.... More

The park is really beautiful and quaint and has a lot of potential. However, the overall maintenance and upkeep really needs attention. I read some of the reviews that blamed budgetary cuts which I'm sure has had some negative impact, but the management has to be held accountable to some degree. Lodge rooms that had filthy floors, dirty windows, and... More

I was in town visiting my childhood home for the first time in 20 years. I was very excited for this trip and at the last minute decided to book a room here instead of one of the local chain hotels. I remember seeing this place when I was a kid back when they had the ski slopes etc. We... More

We've been coming to this park for over 30 years. While the rooms have been renovated, and FINALLY, key cards are being used, it's amazing how little you get for the money. Everyone in our group had something wrong with their room. Ours had a broken light in the bathroom and the toilet needed to be fixed twice. You could... More

Love the cottages but yes you need to bring the extras i.e. salt n pepper, wood, paper plates etc. Walking the trails and thru the campsite is relaxing. Have dog friendly cottages and sites as well. If you like rustic and relaxing and love wildlife this is the place for you. Staff is wonderful as well. Have been coming here... More

We stayed in a cottage in the park. The furnishings were rustic- except for the ridiculous amount of TVs they crammed into this cottage - complete overkill. As you can see from the picture, the cottages need some sprucing up as there is mold or moss growing on the outside. No maid service on Sundays, but you can go to... More

Campgrounds are spacious, facilities clean, staff very polite. Wish the state had funds to keep up all the parks instead of picking and choosing where to allocate funds. The past is present and evident of how special the location was. Still for a weekend camping trip worth a visit.

We came here with a large group of friends for The Kentucky Derby. They have stayed here many times and stated it was nice. On first look it does look nice however, the corners in the room were filthy both on the floor and the ceiling. When I got out of the shower (which uses about 100 gallons of water... More

I love coming here and have been here many times. The location is beautiful, lots of wildlife, and the staff are always very friendly. I'd recommend staying in the building/lodge beside the main building on the top floor (200-220) for the most quite and greatest scenery. My only complaint was the food this time. There was a seafood buffet on... More

this cabin was so smelly, it was like it was sitting right on top of a septic tank! we were supposed to stay two nights, but checked out after one miserable night! The inn itself was nice, the food was great, and so were the people but the room was so awful it cancelled out all the good things
