I stayed at the Deer Creek Lodge and Conference Center for one night as part of a conference there (about 80 people.) The lodge is located well within the park. Note: it will be 10 minutes past where you enter the park before you get to the lodge…beautiful at the end of a peninsula with the lake on three sides....

There is a lot of wear and tear at the lodge. The thing that had us most concerned it the concrete sidewalks and curbs were crumbling in places. My brother in law uses a scooter to get around. He had to go around a lot of holes in the sidewalk to keep from damaging his scooter. It is also a...

We have been going to Deer Creek for years and have always had a great time. Our room was very clean and the outdoor pool was great. The lounge makes for a good time as well. The restaurant is a bit pricey so we had pizza in the lounge and it was very good.

First the good - the lodge has both an indoor and an outdoor pool. It also has bike rental, tennis, golf, and a lake for fishing and water sports. The lodge was clean and well maintained. However, it does have the look of a state run hotel (sort of institutional). However, it goes downhill from there. The hotel appeared to...

I was eager to spend time with my nieces and grandson for a last minute stay before school started. Check in was good and we soon found ourselves poolside with the kids. The outside and indoor pools were great and the kids enjoyed themselves. Upon returning to our room, we discovered the air conditioner was not working and the room...

Our family stayed for two nights for an end of summer get-away. We truly enjoyed the outdoors. We took two hikes on the grounds and it was awesome for our young family.

Honestly, I've only been here for one day and it's been completely and utterly awful. We had a family dinner in the lounge area and the food was awful. We come back to our room and the AC is frozen so they have to move our room. We then switch rooms and the AC explodes in our room and white...

Sorry to hear about your stay. We have experienced a higher level of air conditioner problems with the extreme hot weather this summer and try to address these in a timely manner.
