Reviewed February 19, 2012

Went up there to check things out planning for trips to come. Food was good and plentiful but they didn't seem to understand how to serve it - had to ask for silverware and utensils 3 times. When we got ready to pay the wrong ticket was there because I think the couple that ate before us just got tired of waiting for the check and left. Another group came in and one lady was told restrooms for customers only when she was obviously planning to have a meal. Its not like this is someplace in the middle of the big city where bummy street people were wandering in.
None of this seemed malicious but like they don't know what to do.
Things were kind of ratty and uncared for inside which was sad because it looked like a place with great potential. Example, a new table cloth is less that $2 some places, not trying to be picky but it didn't sell the place.
Cabins looked cute from the outside but when we inquired it felt like we were being warned off- quote: "They're pretty old and run down inside."
I get "rustic" have done it many times and a cabin doesn't need a whole lot to be a haven if you have the right attitude. Everything is gravy after warm cozy & clean but I won't ever know because they didn't seem interested in selling me on the place.
If this was an employee I was dealing with (off season doesn't care?) then what did the owners do to make them want to run off business? If this was the new owner then it's even more confusing.
I have sleeping bags and camping gear, an RV and many friends/family that like to get away often (we even have $$$) so I'm not sure why you would print fliers and create a website if you don't want customers.
Went there open minded and ready to be excited and they just didn't even try. Maybe there's some secret club I don't know about because I'm not a local. At least it was a nice drive and I found out before it was an embarrassing disaster. I hope they do get it together because it's a pretty place that deserves to be loved.

I read all the reviews about the beaver lodge before booking a cabin for my family. We decided to make a weekend of it, and was so happy we did. The cabins are rustic but nice. We found the staff very helpful, they would get us whatever we needed with a smile. There is a restaurant there with amasing food and a full service bar. There was never a dull moment for us, the kids could swim at their docks and we could fish at the same time. We were abel to have a family fun weekend and we will be making this a yearly trip.

Ok, so I read the reviews before we went, was a little leary but thought we would give it a shot. Well I am happy to say it was very nice, We rented a Trailer space, for $25 a night with P-W-S. Nice long sites, it is across the street from the lake but nice. Fishing was beautiful and staff was very very friendly. Do not expect the Ritz, in the cabins, but they are very nice and quaint. I will definately go back again, especially for the price and staff. Has espresso, and made very well. Didnt get to eat at the restaurant, but will next time. We also rented one of the boats for the day. Such a great place for a great price with great people. Thanks for such a wonderful experience. See you all soon.

Excellent location for the outdoor enthusiast. Camping,ORV, Hunting,Fishing, Hiking, they have it all.
The entire staff was friendly, we arrived at 7:30pm when the grill was shutting down. They said they would take our order, even though it was past closing time. We ordered the double bacon cheeseburger it was huge and tasty!!! Home made fries were good too. Cost under $10 Good Prices and good food selection. I would have liked to see the menu posted on their web site.
Our Cabin was the $55 version, reserved it ahead of time. We were warned over the phone it would be rustic, and to bring your own sleeping bag. Yes it was rustic, and it was dirty. The floors had dried up mud from previous guests. The bedding was dirty, but were expecting that, so took off all the bedding and slept in my sleeping bag as advised, Would have liked the floors to be clean, or maybe they provide mop, broom, bucket, cleaner etc. I do not think cabins have been cleaned in a long long time. Similar to review of lack of cleanliness from Camp1990. No Sink or running water, but does have fridge, microwave, etc. Brought paper plates, own utensils etc. Had a wood stove and firewood is provided, but did not need to make a fire. Also had out door fire pit, plenty of places to place your camping chairs and even a tent if you had extra people. The floor does slant at the entrance. They did have a TV which plays DVD or VCR movies. You can take your pick at the resort on the movies you want to watch for free, just make sure you return them for others to enjoy.
We ate several times at the Grill restaurant located on site. Good Food, nice people, place was packed on the weekend during dinner time. Must have had 30 people all eating at the same time and had some other folks waiting for a table.
The staff was informative when asked questions about trails, etc, they even hand fed a small buck deer by the restaurant window.
They did have a community type shower and bathroom, similar to a campground. Bring a few quarters for the shower and wear flip flops. Bring your own towels.
I loved the location of the resort. We were able to ride our quads from our cabin into the hills.
Bottom Line, we would stay there again. Enjoyed our visit, the staff, and the location. All the guests seemed to be having a good time. Next time we will be better prepared for the the cabin, IE will bring some cleaning supplies as none are provided, and you are out in the woods. Just like camping in your tent, you become prepared the next time. My only suggestion to have some maps for sale of the ORV trails, etc, also would have purchased a coffee mug, but they were all being used at the restaurant. :)

it's 75$ a nite with all the wood you can burn, if you want a 5 star hotel go to Vegas, I think it's a great deal and met some nice people there and had a good time. Most of the bad reviews are from people I would rather not camp with anyway. Going back this weekend!

We stayed in the $75 cabin and was told it was rustic. It was definitely rustic which was fine but it was filthy. The sinks hadn't been cleaned and had something moldy and dirty all around the faucets. The fridge was disgusting and gross. There was dirt and cobwebbs everywhere. We had to sweep the floor ourselves as the dirt was left behind from the last campers. The dishes were dirty and had to be washed before we could use them. It wasn't cleaned up after the last campers and we were very disappointed in how much we spent to stay there each night. The campground outhouse was the worst and smelliest we have ever encountered. We've stayed in cabins in yellowstone that were rustic and had bathrooms in each cabin and they were clean and spotless. All we wanted was a clean cabin for the $ we paid and we got filth. The owners are very nice but don't know how to clean the cabins after each campers leave. Please take the time to clean for you are charging so much for each cabin. There's inches of dust and dirt under your beds and if cleaned you would find other campers missing flip flops and socks. We don't recommend using the cabins as they are overpriced, filthy and gross. We left the cabin cleaner than we found it so they probably didn't bother to do anymore to it before the next campers arrived. Beware.. Very very very dirty.. Not just regular camping dirty but filthy.

This resort failed to live up to the posted reviews. We came with several trailers to the RV park to spend a week and had spent several phone calls to make sure the space would accomodate our trailers. The spaces were way too small, the interior roads rough, the lake was not suitable for swimming and the camp spots and road were dirty with garbage. Bathrooms were fillty. Employees seemed short-staffed and did not care. We left as soon as possible and the experience was a big disappointment for our family vacation.
