Although the view of the lake and woods from the hotel room is beautiful, especially from the balcony, the building in which the room is located stands out from the lovely environment as an ugly intrusion. The door to our room had significant peeling paint. The bedding was old and suspect, and the rug on the floor was significantly stained...

Thank you for your recent stay here at Fall Creek Falls State Park. We appreciate you as a guest and value your comments. There are some things that need to be updated at the Inn but the state is working on those issues now. We are receiving funding for parks and there will be some updates on the way hopefully...

Apparently, none of the slightly high room rent is being plowed back into the lodge! The water may, or may not, be potable, but I wouldn't even use it to brush my teeth, as it was brown, as was the toilet water and it got browner over the three days we were there. They could invest in some new mattresses...

I want to thank you for staying with us at Fall Creek Falls State Park. I apologize for the condition of your room and the water. The severe drought we are having has caused the water table to be very low and the water department is supplying us discolored water. Hopefully we will get some rain to solve this problem....

The rooms were state park standard, but I really appreciated the porch and lake view. The breakfast buffet had plenty of options (really good biscuits), including a nice fresh fruit selection; the servers bring your drinks, otherwise it is self-serve. I spent some time at the bar one evening trying local brews (Calfkiller) yum. Otherwise, the bartender was attentive and...

Our room was clean but very quaint and antiquated. We had a decent view of the lake from a somewhat private balcony but those are about the only good things I can say about it. The Inn is more of a motel than a hotel. The doors to the rooms are very loud when they close and can be heard...

I loved our visit to this park. The scenery is breaking. The bikes really fun for our whole family. The camp ground.... Completely backwards. The way they have the sites organized and the way they have set up the one way loops It's completely opposite for any one who owns a camper. Everyone was simply disregarding the signs and pulling...

The inn is pretty basic although it does have a restaurant; the attraction is the location. It is so quiet, so peaceful, so beautiful. You can camp, fish, hike, kayak, canoe, bike, swim (in the pool, not the lake), explore, wander, visit the nature center, participate in the various activities. The family-friendly activities are every day in the summer; weekends...

The inn is a nice place for the money although a little outdated. There is a on site restaurant which was good and had breakfast lunch and dinner. We enjoyed many activities around the park such as horse back riding, the falls, golf and zip lining. Was very disappointed in the fishing. But overall it was a nice trip and...

First visit was 25 yrs ago & this visit we found the inn & food to be basically the same. The rooms could use some updating/cleaning but were comfortable. All rooms have a view of the lake. The falls in early September had very little water in them & some of the trails need to be reworked. The entire staff...

The Inn is a little rustic, but if you are wanting to find a place to enjoy nature and experience some peace, this is it. The lake is absolutely gorgeous, especially as the sun rises. The staff was attentive to all our needs and helpful is recommending local sights.
