I stayed in the lodge March 2-5, and have noted some areas for improvement: *They need to update the address that they use for Salt Fork State Park on their communications to customers. I used the address included in my reservation email in my GPS (same one as noted on their Contact Us page for the lodge), and it took...

Thank you for your feedback. I apologize for your difficulties in locating the lodge and navigating your way throughout the lodge. I'm also disappointed to learn that the restaurant carpeting needed swept. In terms of the standing water on the pool's upper deck, I would like to assure you that this was very unusual and has been resolved. We are...

This beautiful location has miles of trails and a variety of wildlife. Deer visited our patio every morning and evening. Not being a hunter, I admired their graceful beauty and calming nature. We had several meals in the restaurant and very satisfied with the quality and price. Kyle, our waiter, was wonderful!

We brought the kids here for a one night stay. It's very clean and recently renovated. The lodge is quaint and rustic. All the fireplaces were lit with nice sitting areas around them. The room was clean with a large hd tv. The balcony had a beautiful view of the lake. The bunk beds were a nice feature. The indoor...

Nice stay! Too bad the pool was so cold Sunday evening. Some children went regardless and faced the cold. Many stayed out causing the jacuzzi to be overcrowded and in demand. Monday morning the water was warm and very nice to just be able to walk in. Watching the children who had experienced the cold water the night before was...

I grew up in the area but hadn't visited in over 20 years. I was a little nervous because I didn't know what to expect. What my family experienced exceeded every expectation I had.

We booked our stay at the lodge for something different and a more family friendly experience. With 3-14 year olds this was not smart. I like that the girls could wander freely with plenty to do, but this was definitely more for smaller children. Absolutely everything is at additional cost which is ridiculous considering the regular off-season pricing. The fact...

It's a beautiful location and the indoor pool is great, but the cabins need serious work, especially for the price. Ours had dirty dishes, not a single hook to hang anything, and cheapest possible towels, blankets and pillows, the kind you would expect in a $50 a night motel, not a $200 a night 'cottage.' The place feels old and...

Thank you for taking the time to share with us your thoughts. I am obviously disappointed that you were not satisfied with the overnight accommodations. When the cabins were initially constructed, they were quite rustic with limited amenities. The most alluring feature at that time was the location/views of the lake. Over the years we have continued to add features...
