My husband stayed two nights in the corn crib and had an absolute great time. Being unplugged and rustic was exactly what we were looking for and Charit Creek did not disappoint. Greg was a great host and the food was perfect. Gorgeous hiking and serenity. We will definitely be back.

Our family of three loved this lodge for a long weekend with the fall colors in Big South Fork. The hiking was beautiful, the corn crib was comfortable and the food was hearty! And it was such an easy trip to plan since we did not need to pack camping gear or plan backpacker meals. At the same time, it...

We stayed a single night in their comfortable tree tents. It's a Gorgeous short hike into the lodge area. Staff was courteous and knowledgable. The dinner was a delicious pork loin, veggie sides, toasty rolls, a scrumptious sweat potato casserole, and a melty cookie for dessert. We snagged a bundle of firewood and snore fixings for the campfire at our...

We spent 2 nights at Charit Creek Lodge with our grandkids, ages 6 and 13. Wonderful way to give kids an experience "off the grid." We hiked to Twin Arches and Jakes Place, hung out on the screened porch, enjoyed delicious meals. The staff make every effort to make our stay perfect.

I highly recommend staying at Charit Creek Lodge for anyone looking for some peace, relaxation, and great hiking. Gregg and the whole crew were great, very welcoming and friendly! The food was great, especially after a long day of hiking. We stayed in one of the detached cabins. The accommodations were pleasantly rustic. Eating by kerosene-lantern light and waking up...

Excellent food, service, and clean rustic accommodations. Greg and his staff treated us great while we enjoyed God's Creation!!! Beautiful scenery and great hiking in the middle of Big South Fork National Park along with food you would expect from a 5 star hotel restaurant. No complaints, only thanks.

This lovely lodge is in the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River National river Recreation area. The lodge is only a short walk in from the trailhead, but provides a backcountry experience. The food was excellent, the accommodations were very good- we stayed in a cabin and the staff are very helpful and friendly. There is no electricity so...

Get unplugged, hike great trails & escape from city life & chaotic pace. Staff are absolutely fabulous - genuine, caring, enthusiastic about introducing you to, or continuing to foster your love of, the beautiful wilderness within the Big South Fork National Park. You have to hike down to the lodge (30-40 minutes?), which lies by Charit Creek. With the windows...
