We just loved the Pere Marquette Lodge. It was very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful with any questions. The view from anywhere on the grounds were amazing!! The food was the best. We never have eaten fried chicken as good as it was there. Awesome! Every meal we had, the food was delicious! The atmosphere was...

Loved staying here. We used to drive up here just to eat the fried chicken dinner, but so glad we finally stayed. Cabins are lovely, comfortable and so nice to be separated from technology(no cell or internet). Highly recommend for a relaxing time away.

We have stayed both in the lodge and the cabins. The last time was in the cabins. The accommodations were excellent and very quiet. I would recommend the cabins over the lodge unless heavy rain is predicted.

From the life size chess game to the wines this place is great getaway. Great food if you can wait. Worth the ride on motorcycle along river road. This is a frequent destination ride....across two ferries.

This is a beautiful place to stay, in a state park right on the Missouri River. The Lodge, cabins, and grounds are well-maintained. The park is beautiful with a scenic drive and multiple hiking trails, none too demanding. I reserved three cabin rooms for myself and friends online. Two of the rooms were lovely, rustic CCC stone construction with beautiful...

The lodge is rustic and takes you back in time, but the rooms are modern and have everything you need! Cell phone service is pretty much non-existent, but the break was refreshing. Indoor pool, amazing hiking trails and scenic lookout points. The perfect spot to get away. Staff is more than accommodating and the on-site winery is a treat. The...

The main road to the park, 100, was flooded on our trip, this happens when you build a road at the same elevation as the Mississippi River, causing us to go the backway. All locals know the backway, but we are not local and never went the same “backway” twice, just glad to get to town and back, although, dazed...

My wife and I took our two youngest up from Stl. to The Lodge for the Morel Hunt. We didn't find any, but it was a beautiful day, and everyone had a good time, including our 12-year old daughter who hadn't felt like going. The activities, the stunning scenery, the wonderful food and service at the lodge...it all added up...

Historic lodge with nice and comfortable rooms. Staff friendly and helpful. My husband and I were there April 18-19 and the spring flowers and dogwood trees were in bloom. We hiked one of the trails and enjoyed nature in the state park. The informational movies, especially the one on the Conservation Crops, in the Visitor Center were good.

We stayed in one of the cabins. The space was roomy and very comfortable. The cabins and lodge were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the depression and have been renovated several times. They are not modern or luxurious, but the price is reasonable and the overall experience is well worth it. PM State Park has great hiking and...
