The hostess at the lodge dining room was absolutely the friendliest and most helpful we have ever had. The lodge was cozy yet spacious with very inviting decor.

This was one of my boyfriend's Grandpa's favorite buffets. A little expensive, but the food was pretty good. They were constantly cleaning the stations and replenishing the food. They were quick to accommodate when asked for anything. After dinner walk the beautiful property.

The servers are lovely. No complaints there. The prices are something like $12 for breakfast buffet, $14 for lunch, and maybe $20 for dinner, per person not including tax and tip or drinks. We only went for breakfast since it was a bit high and the food felt old and cold at times. (like the eggs). It must be hard... More

Typically I don't love buffets but this was convenient, appropriately priced and had a good selection and friendly servers. A great place to grab breakfast if you're staying at the lodge or in the cabins.

We ate here twice during our stay and both times we received very attentive service from a friendly and helpful server. The food was good, and served hot. The salad I ordered was huge, as was the sandwich my boyfriend ordered, so we felt it was a pretty good value. We would not hesitate to dine here again if we... More

The buffet meals in the dinning room were excellent, always providing a huge selection of entrees, sides, salads, soups and desserts. We especially enjoyed the variety of fish; especially the fresh trout; as well all the local cuisines. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. Dinning here was a yummy, fun and enjoyable experience; as well a great value!

Our stay was nice like what you would expect at a hotel . Everything was clean and we had a nice view from our room even in the first floor. Beds were comfortable except that the pillows were very flat. I hated them. I wish I bought my own pillows. It was Very convenient to the park so that was... More

As we have learned to adjust our expectations with state parks that may have passed their peak, it was nice to see a park that appeared still to be thriving, and to enjoy a nice Thanksgiving buffet in the lodge dining room. A special and unexpected treat was the local trout, whole. With this big piece of fish, I skipped... More
