The cabin we stayed in was very nice. Loved the lake view in the morning. However, The guests in the neighboring cabins were quite loud, dogs barking at all hours and loud rock music all day long, even early in the morning. If the park has a noise ordinance it wasn't enforced. Made a family vacation not very pleasant.

The location on the lake is so pretty. Lodge is a little outdated, but fine.

Very nice place to Stay

It's a very nice place to stay though there were a few things that could have been better. Our room (255) the balcony was filled with bees. We mentioned it the clerk called maintenance but never looked like they sprayed. The first night also we didn't have coffee, the second day we did and when we opened the coffee pot there was a coffee filter still there from whom knows when. The cleaners need to look at the coffee pots a little more in depth. This should be a simple check on the cleaning checklist. Thirdly Wish there were more push carts. We were curious to return our cart when we first arrived but when we had to leave we had to carry our bags a good half mile to our car. Room 255 has to be the furthest away from the entrance and no carts just sucked.

Great views from the dining room.

Pros: Views nd wildlife to be seen.
Cons: Room walls need painting.
Location: About 30 miles south-east of Columbus.
A little further away from Columbus than I thought. But state road access to highways avoided traffic. Worth the extra time to have a peaceful setting.

I want to go back!

Pros: The friendly staff, the laid-back feel, the location (center of state park), available activities.
Cons: The rooms are a bit out-dated. But nothing to complain about.
Unfortunately, we arrived at the hotel very late, and had to leave early in the morning. But this is a place I definitely want to visit again. It is located in a state park, and has tons of great hiking, fishing, a huge indoor swimming pool and another large outdoor swimming pool, as well as other activities. The hotel has a great 'lodge' feel to it. All the staff were extremely friendly. This would be a great place for a family reunion, a wedding, or a week to relax, unwind, and enjoy nature. Tip: This hotel is off the beaten path.
