“Will go back!”
Reviewed August 14, 2008

We arrived with more people than originally expected ( you know how teenagers are) and a small dog.
Teresa was quite accomodating to the extra people and even my dog. They usually charge $20.00 a night extra for a pet but I told her that Poncho, my dog a Chihuahua, was not a $20.00 a night dog, that he was a $5.00 dollar a night dog and she laughed and said the best she could do wa $12.50 a night. I said OK, that's better than $20.00 for a half size dog.
We had even more people coming in the next day so we got another room. The folks at the marina were super nice also. We rented a ski barge and they told us where to go to catch fish and good places to swim. The trip was great!
We enjoyed the pool and the horseshoes and the outside grill provided. I cooked every night on the grill and it was great.
My wife even left her mouse to her laptop and my grandson left a Spiderman slipper and they mailed it to us.
Will go back for sure!

We stayed at Ouachita Resorts this weekend. The location was very peaceful and serene, but that is the only good thing I can say. The pool is small. The rooms were clean, but really old. We would have had a better time if not for the "lady" that manages the resort. She met us outside in her golfcart and told us we were only allowed to park in a certain spot, and was not very nice at all. She was very nosey and controlling. We felt as if we were being "watched" all weekend. Since we only had one coffee packet upon arrival for a 2 night stay, we requested another and were asked why we needed it? Hello? They are obviously penny-pinching and possible struggling financially? They counted the replacement towels we got and marked them on a notepad before they would hand them to us, which made us feel like they thought we were thieves. At any rate, the resort would have been a great, relaxing and peaceful retreat had it not been for the nosey staff lady.

My family of 4 recently stayed at Lake Ouachita Shores Resort. We stayed in one of the motel rooms they have. Granted this is not a five star hotel. The resort was probably built in the 60's, but it was very clean. They allow pets, which worried me, but the room we stayed in was clean. A few other families did have small dogs with them and they never caused any problems. It was really quiet all weekend even though they were completely booked. They have a decent swimming pool, horseshoe pit, volleyball/badmitten net and a really nice, large deck. We rented a slip for our boat at the nearby marina, that was very convienent. The marina is within walking distance. We overall enjoyed our stay, and plan to stay there while at the lake, until we buy another camper trailer.
