Very underwhelming. Hotel room is overpriced. Pool, water slide, hot springs were average at best. We arrived and there was no water in the room. Front desk said that this was a common issue. Room was dirty. Decor was tired. Nothing really noteworthy about the place. I think it is more of a locals place.

Not much choice in Preston, I know. But this place ... not clean, battered hodgepodge furnishings, burnt-out bulbs in light fixtures, and a strange bathroom arrangement (separate toilet, but a jacuzzi with an inadequate shower head is right next to the bed). Because of what I assume is natural spring water, the tub was pretty brown & crusty, taps corroded,...

If it happens to be clean and the slides working then you are getting a fair deal for the day. not many trees, you will get hungry and have to drive into town half the time for real food other than chips, candy bars, and soda. This place is not consistent with services, or cleanliness. Id call first before visiting...

We got the FULL Riverdale resort experience last weekend. We used the condo, cabin, tent grass, pavilion and water park. Two stars for very poor execution of a resort. One star for accommodations, extra star for the pools. Full description of each below: We rented the "Condo" for our family reunion. Sleeps 7, plus couches if you don't dare get...

We came here quite often years ago. We had a family reunion and we were arriving a day early and wanted time with just our family. We decided to stay here since there was something going on in Logan that made hotel prices outrageous. BIG MISTAKE! The pool grounds are dilapidated. Our bathroom had 1 partially used toilet paper roll...

I took swimming lessons here in the 90's when I was a kid and loved it! I have taken my children here for the past 7 years or so and it isn't a high class place but still fun. We missed coming the past 2 years so we decided to stay for a few days last week. I read there...

You have got to be kidding me. True this place is in a little town. But let's be honest, this is the worst run down facility I have ever been to. Let me be specific. 4 women's bathrooms and only 2 were in operation. The rest of the locker room smelled like an outhouse! Every were you look there's weeds...

We thought we would give it a try. Big mistake. The facilities are terrible. Slime in the pools. Rooms were dirty. Customer service there was extremely poor. Would recommend going elsewhere. Save your money and go elsewhere. We will never return.

we camped at the RV park which said full hookups, half the spots didn't have water and or electricity, took the kids to the pool and the water was green and the floor of the pool was covered in dirt, decided to try the hot pools and they were slimey on the bottom, one slide was closed the other was...

I reviewed this last year and gave it an ok review. Well, a year has passed and it was worse than it was before. DO NOT GO HERE. We went on Memorial Day at night, we thought it would be relaxing for my visiting father-in-law. It was not. The only upgrades we saw were the new Rocks added for landscaping...

“if you want wifi you need to sit in the snack bar area, all the rooms are pretty much the same, they have hot springs and that's a plus”

“Bring your own RV for best sleep options.”
  • Bathroom. That red chord is the power for the hot water heater, which goes down and thru the wal
  • Bathroom construction quality was questionable.
  • Plywood ceiling
  • Flood came across the back wall, see the volume of water in the reflection near the bottom right
  • Flood in the unit overwhelmed the towels we put down to stop it.
