Nice comfort food for a cold day. The turkey is baked fresh, homemade mashed potatoes and dressing. My only suggestion is put sage in the dressing. We will definitely go back ...maybe I’ll bring my own sage. Portions are right size for lunch. Friendly staff,...More

Nice place to visit while in Parke County IN. The lodge is renovating its indoor pool. The nature center was interesting. There are different trails to hike. Dog friendly!
