“You call that a water park!?!?”
Reviewed November 9, 2004

My room was small and OLD. The food was blah. The service was....well, what service? I came to try out their new water park and I couldn't believe what they were trying to pass for a water park AND that I had to pay extra to use it. I've been to other hotels with REAL indoor water parks, and the admission was included in the room rate. To charge money for the heated pool and bucket they have squirreled away in the back of a very confusing and exhausting jumble of buildings seems just about criminal. I have been taken for the last time!! I will not be back!

We have stayed here several times over the years. We still like it and the kids love it. The new indoor waterpark is great. The kids were impressed by the waterslides. One building is very new. The main lodge is, like some posters have mentioned, in need of having room updates. This facility used to be a Marriott and I think the standards were higher a few years ago. We had a 2-bedroom suite down on the lake. I laugh about the previous posters complaining about bugs. You're on a lake, in the woods! Duh! Yes, the old ladies at Burger King are nasty. We stayed over Labor Day weekend. The main outdoor pool is very nice, with a water slide. We also rented a boat and had fun on this huge lake.
