We are the best burger and fries we have had in a very long time. They have a nice little restaurant and the restrooms were spotless. The wait staff was pleasant and the food came promptly. We will definatly stop there again.

We had 6 of us go to this resort for fishing and relaxation. We rented the duplex they offered. We all loved the lodge, the food was delicious and the servers were great! We didn't actually go to the bar, but thought it was really beautiful! We would definitely go there again!

The facility is dirty. The dining help is so poor the owners just as well save their money and not hire any of them. The wait staff doesn't even know whose table is theirs. No silverware. No water refills. The buffet items are COLD.

We stayed at the Bear Lodge for one night on a layover on our way to Cody, WY. My husband had seen this place years ago and had always wanted to check it out, but we didn't get back to Burgess Junction until this year, so we thought we'd give it a try. I had read all the terrible reviews...

Spent this last weekend (Friday and Saturday) for a family reunion. I will list the good things first because there was so few. The pies there are to die for and many travel tour buses stop JUST for the pies and Big Mike makes the best omelets and waffles around. Now for the bad which I won't list all. When...

Stayed two days to get some four wheeling in. Long waits in the lodge due to one register for both hotel and restaurant. Food was just ok, but the lack of staff was very noticeable. Love the location for what we had going, but the rooms seamed barely clean and bathrooms were run down. Cabins needed stained, and campground was...

We stopped here for lunch on our drive through the Bighorn Mountains . In the cabin-like restaurant we found the staff to be friendly and efficient. Our hamburgers were tasty. They had a pie case with some tempting offers if one had room for dessert.

The place is filthy. A power washer to everything inside and out would help tremendously. Soap, water and a good power washer are not that expensive. Friends checked out after one night with no hot water, filthy bathroom, etc. It is baffling how a place with such great potential is so neglected.

We stayed here as a family in 2015 and 2016 as my husband was running the Bighorn 100. The first summer we stayed in a cabin that was almost uninhabitable. I pulled the camping tarp out of our tent equipment and laid that over the carpet as a barrier. We also opted to sleep in our sleeping bags (on top...

In fairness, we stayed at Arrowhead Lodge which at the time is owned by Bear Lodge but was in the process of being sold. The room was somewhat clean although the sheets, carpets, and blankets were so old that there were inevitable stains that couldn't be removed. The shower had been repaired from water leaks and done poorly. Mold was...
