Big Sandy Lodge & Resort
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Stayed for first time for 3 nights in a Cabin overlooking the lodge. The facilities were excellent and the cabin was beautiful. Lake access is only 1 car width though.

Unfortunately we were hoping to find a nice sandy beach for our kids to play on but there were dead snails everywhere; not sure if excessive quantities due to the flooding up there this year in June-July.

This place would be perfect if they can fix the beach/snail issue.

Thank you for staying with us and providing us with your feedback. Yes, the snails were not normal and were due to the flooding in the area in the summer of 2012. That summer the lake rose to 6 feet above it's normal level, thus covering up our wonderful sand beach for part of the summer. We hope that you can return and enjoy the fun and beauty of the resort and the beach soon!
