The game room, the fire pit, the river to paddle on. We had a very nice stay and I wish I had known about it when my kids were young. It would have been a great place to take them where they would have plenty to do.

My wife and I had a great time! I would recommend it to anyone because it close to any big town. Its out in a quiet little town so its very relaxing to set outside and watch the river. We had a great time and will be going back with our kids.

At the risk of sounding like a commercial, our family had a wonderful time here. There were so many memorable things for the kids to do. The staff were super warm and welcoming. They really went out of the way to make sure we enjoyed ourselves.

The lodge is in a great location. There is a lot to do, no matter the season! The lodge has a great swimming pool and hot tub, family game area, and great views of the Crooked River in every room. Room was very clean and staff were very pleasant. We would come back!
