I had a great time talking to John the owner. He knows the lake and offered spots to fish and what to use. He has a nice store with what you will need to camp and fish. We got a 18 pound catfish. Lake is great for family fun and boating.

Lake is beautiful scenery is equally gorgeous. Cabins are decent a little pricey for what you get but they were very clean and comfortable. They come with all your basic kitchen needs. We stayed in a 2 bedroom 4 bed cabin. With 6 of us is was quite comfortable size wise. Staff was very friendly. Will definitely visit again.

While this is not the fanciest or nicest resort you will ever stay at, it's cozy, fun, and has the most beautiful scenery around it. The cabins are right on the lake, they are clean, small, but good enough, the staff is friendly and accommodating, and the office has plenty of supplies/groceries (a bit more expensive than going to the...

My niece and her best friend (both 16) and I were attending the annual Nebraska Star-Watching Party in Valentine. I've been to this many times, and I try to stay in a different place every year, whether it be at the now-defunct Lovejoy B & B, or the Holiday Inn in town. The Merritt folks left the key and directions...
