“VERY Dissapointed”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We were there for the Labor day weekend and had reserved a pavillion for a barbque. The weather was horrible, raining and lightening, so we called very early to cancel. NO REFUND, no apologies, no offer of any discount or concession. It's not that we didn't WANT to go enjoy the park, it was that we COULDN'T go enjoy the park. The cost of the reservation was just lost, so I will NEVER go again. I only expected maybe a partial refund or maybe an offer to get another pavillion on another day, but they were not even open to discussion.

“beautiful anna ruby falls”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

we hiked to the beautiful anna ruby falls. well worth the $3 per person admission into the park and the steep climb to the top! nice, paved trail, but very steep. we went in december, but heard a lady wearing flip flops was bitten by a rattle snake in the summer and had to be taken by helicopter. wear appropriate foot wear, stay on the trail and rest if needed and enjoy God's gift.

“Anna Ruby Falls was really neat!”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

While it is a LONG hike UPHILL to get to the falls (0.4 miles doesn't sound like much, but it's very steep, so it burns after a while), but it was well worth it. The staff is very friendly and helpful. You pay $3 per person to view the falls. Definitely worth a few hours of your day.

“Great Lodge and Restaurant”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

We went during early December, when they have the annual Festival of Trees. They have a display of Christmas trees and wreaths, and you can bid on the wreaths. Had the Lunch Buffet which was very good and filling, and the service was excellent!

“Beautiful”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

I have visited the state park 3 times now and it is just gorgouse. Anna Rubby Falls is so pretty and its a nice little hick. They also have a longer trail if you get to the top of Anna Rubby Falls. They park has great picnic areas, and a great beach by the lake. It is very clean and peaceful.
