Lodge rooms are clean and staff friendly. A naturalist was on site at one point, so we got to handle snakes. The aquatic center looked amazing for the kids, though we did not use that facility. There are many indoor and outdoor areas to relax. We enjoyed the fireplace. Free coffee around. Lodge food was plentiful and good, if you...

So we had not been here in a few years. We lucked out this year and got a patio room. It was awesome. The room opens onto a large patio. Each room has a 2 person swing with a chair right outside the door. There are other chairs and a table where we ate dinner on Saturday night. The patio...

Good experience all around. Room was clean and comfortable and the dining room served excellent meals; although the menu is limited. Staff was friendly and helpful. Internet access a little spotty. We were a little apprehensive after reading many negative reviews; but had a great time and will return. Good hiking trails. Beautiful park, well maintained.

My fiancé and I stayed here during our children's spring break. Room was clean and comfortable. Slightly dated décor but it is in a state park. Lighting in room was extremely bright wish it had been a little softer. Pool was great for kids and would've been even better if it was heated. There is a restaurant onsite but it...

We stayed in a new cabin near the lodge. It was very nice and near brown county. We visited downtown for dinner and drinks. The water park is small but good for small kids. Many trails for walking, riding horses, or bikes. Good trip for the family away from the distractions of the city.

This was a last minute Spring Break 2 day stay. It was suggested to me by a friend instead of the frenzy of a huge aquatic based, animal themed, expensive Mason, Ohio hotel. The only rooms left were in a primitive cabin so I was a bit scared of what we might find but it was a clean room set...

If you're looking to stay in a run down hotel with deplorable food service, this is for you. We sat the restaurant for an hour and a half with four kids before we got our food. We watched as five tables around is who ordered a full half hour later were served. The answer from the server was sorry you...

You're coming for nature, and because you want to enjoy being in that amazing, historic setting. The lodge and cabins are named for an old time cartoon character, and info on that character is all over the resort. I've benn there in the winter...and most recently during spring break. This time I upgraded to a patio room and it was...

Our family has enjoyed renting a cabin for a spring break mini vacation for several years. This year may be the last. We arrived on Friday with 6 grand kids.

We are sorry that the pool had to be shut down during your stay with us. Unfortunately there are times there are accidents in the aquatic center that are out of our control, the safety of our guest is priority and the pool must be closed until property guidelines are met. We do apologize for this and are sorry to...
