First of all, I need to express my gratitude that this place could take us when the power outages in West Virginia the week of July 4, 2012, meant we had to scramble to relocate a family reunion of 27 people. We rented two four-bedroom cottages and some rooms in the lodge. The setting was truly lovely and there was plenty to do for all ages.
HOWEVER--the public areas of the lodge seem totally neglected. The indoor swimming pool had cracked and dirty tile and beatup furniture, the dingy cinderblock bathrooms had peeling paint, I was afraid to use the weight benches in the fitness room as they looked as if they had never been cleaned. The miniature golf was really shabby--good that it was free! The rental equipment for tennis was just a joke--four old rackets and some used balls! That's a shame, as they had four lighted courts, but the surfaces were in poor condition. The golf course was one bright spot--beautiful course and great rental equipment. Just one petty but telling example of neglect--in the lodge public bathrooms, they had elongated toilets but fitted them with the smaller, plastic toilet lids. Talk about cheaping out!
The cottages were in fairly good shape compared to the lodge, but seemed expensive per night compared to other state parks we have been in. The cottages slept 12 people, but only sat 6 at the table in the kitchen, so we had to rent a table and chairs from the lodge.
The restaurant, front desk and bar staff were helpful and friendly.
