Lauren in the main office was super friendly and helpful. The log cabin was perfect for 2-4 people and had all the amenities we needed....

We stayed in Natures Nest and it was a perfect getaway for us. Full kitchen for cooking so get some groceries, also a grill and fire pit off of the back deck. Rent a gator and explore the trails and visit the critters!

We have been here twice now. They have improved the activities since we last visited. My kids enjoyed the boats that are free to use and we all enjoyed fishing and taking a dip in the lake. My younger kids enjoyed the small petting zoo. Plenty of nice hiking trails to enjoy also. We rented the new Polaris atv and...

Randy and his staff were simply amazing. Our family had many of the cabins rented for the weekend and we heard no one complain about anything. Our Cabin, The Texas Star, was absolutely perfect and well stocked. It was clean and comfortable. We participated in many of the offered activities and even won a Golden Horseshoe! We have already booked...

Great accommodations for our extended family. We have five families staying in the Texas Star and Kangaroo Corner, and it's just right for us. Plenty of activities available. We tried the hayride and the horseback trail ride, and really enjoyed them both. The managers are very nice!
