Many folks in our family stayed at this “resort” while attending a reunion at a lake house nearby. We really only used the resort rooms/cabins to sleep at, but loud music at the pool went past 1:00 AM every night, just impossible to sleep. We were told that some nights the loud music would go on until 4:00 AM. Will never stay at this resort again.

Response from Liz G, General Manager at Runaway II Resort and Campground
Responded Aug 20, 2018
Sorry your visit wasn't up to par. I am the General Manager and if it is ever too loud there is always a phone number posted that can be called and I personally would go and speak with whomever is staying with us making it too loud. It is not the resort that is making the noise, unfortunately some guests just have to be spoke with to turn down their music as they are also on vacation. Best of luck to your future ventures.

We have taken our two grandchildren to Runaway for 4 years straight now. We ALL have a great time! Our cabin was 2 bedroom/2 bath, which is perfect for 4 of us with wet suits, showers, etc. The front porch is a good place for hanging suits, towels and floaties to dry. We bring most of our own groceries, but always eat breakfast at Sharkbite on Sunday and at least one other meal there, too. Their burgers and fries are great!! Everything is made from scratch--hand-cut fries! We always get a boat slip, so once the boat is in the water, we only have to walk a few hundred feet to be out on the water. They are in a cozy cove with boat gas, as well. We fish off the docks--and always get enough for a meal--catfish mainly. We tube, ski, kneeboard, and swim in either the pool or the lake. They have a swim beach that the kids love, with a dock that we watch from nearby. We make new memories each year and really enjoy Debbie and Keith, the owners. Liz is the bar manager, and is always so welcoming and hard-working! We were so pleased this year when we found our usual cabin interior had bee updated! Loved every minute!

I’ll start with the good. Docks and boat ramp were nice, as well as them having fuel! There was a small swim beach with dock as well. There is a bar and grill on site, and the food was good, particularly the pizza! They also have a small sand volleyball court. The other nice feature is the private cove this “resort” is on. This part of the lake is also much more relaxed. They also apparently host a fishing tournament every year in the cove and bring fish in and dump in the cove. Luckily the point of our get away was to spend time on the water, so we didn't spend much time in the cabin. When we arrived, we had to check in by going to the bar, apparently the office has limited hours. The “resort” seems to be a mix of campers, camping lots, permanent campers, rental cabins and other structures. It seemed as if many of the people we came into contact with lived on the property and worked there. The swimming pool was very cloudy and our kids would not get in it, as you couldn’t see the bottom of the pool for how cloudy it was. The first cabin we were in the first night was not in good shape. (see pics) It was overgrown with vegetation, and there was a burnt/wrecked car outside our deck with rotten food and bugs in it. The owner claimed the next day he was unable to move it per the fire marshal and it had been there for weeks. In my mind this means you don’t rent the unit, because who would want to pay to stay in that cabin? It was awful! On top of this the unit below ours, had a permanent resident who also worked on the property, she also had a dog that she kept inside that liked to bark when she wasn’t there. First thing the next morning we started calling around looking for other options for places to stay that had a dock for our boat Luckily the next morning we spoke with the owner, who moved us to another cabin that he would have cleaned for us. He needed 3-4 hours however to get it cleaned. We accepted and he comp’d our first night’s stay. The 2nd cabin was better than the first (after all there wasn’t a burnt car with rotten food outside it) but still not what we had in mind. Luckily we had brought sheets which we placed over all the furniture. The air conditioner in this unit leaked water in the floor. As of August this property was for sale. Hopefully someone will buy the property and give it the love and attention it needs as I think it has potential for the right owner.

Ok. Im gonna start with the good here. The pool was nice. Kids loved it. Plenty of boat docks too. We all loved the swim dock. Spent a lot of time out there swimming and fishing. The swim beach was nice too. Very sandy and never felt any mud. Its on a very peaceful part of the lake. Felt like we had the lake to ourselves. The bad. Our airconditioner did not hardly work when we got there on Sunday. After sleeping with the doors open 2 nights and the air eventually not working at all, I complained on Tuesday morning. The lady at the main office is very nice. She sent the maintanance man out. Long story short... after 3 times complaining that day, he finally changed it out around 5pm. I got myself a tiny window air conditioner for a 2 bedroom cabin. It took another day to finally cool the place down. I would have felt better if a discount was given. I paid $140/night. I got myself a little care package of stuff from the lady, which was nice... but money speaks volumes. She also offered me a fan. I felt amazing as we sat there in 95degree weather and no air. However it was FILTHY. The dishes were also dirty. I grabbed several utensils and had to flick old crusted food off from the previous people. So i washed everything before i would use it. In fact, I went out and bought disposable dishes/utenils. The kitchen is not fully stocked at all. I had one littly tiny frying pan to feed the 6 of us. Literally 1 day i cooked 6 hamburgers, 1 at a time. They gave us 2 trashbags for our 4 day stay. One night my daughter came and woke me up stating there was a big bug in the bathroom. I got up. It was the biggest cockroach Ive ever seen. The couch was torn and we were scared to sit on it without a blanket over the top. The cabin is all carpeted besides the bathroom. It is dirty looking with lots of stains. The walls needed wiped down. Lots of smears on them. Even an old smashed bug in the bathroom. We had a large reunion. Maybe 70 people there???? They did not mow the grounds. The grass was long and lots of weeds. We even had weeds growing up through our deck. The shower was nice and clean. At some point they had removed a bathtub and the flooring and border is not finished in that area. My son spilled some juice on a pillowcase so i removed the case. The pillow was so stained and nasty underneath! My kids didn't care about all the above. They had the best week there. I did have a good time as well, but the cabin really was gross. I will not stay in one again.
