This is a great place to stay and play! A wonderful inn located in McCormick's Creek State Park. The staff is wonderful, the rooms are clean and comfortable. Look at the back of the door in each room to find a note and drawing from a local child! The inn has a big common room area with a fireplace, seating...

We went to the Canyon Inn for Sunday Brunch in their Hickory Room. The dining room boost hardwood floors, wooden chairs, the rustic look.

This is a nice place to stay. We have stayed at other State park inns and this one did not disappoint me. The king room was large enough and clean. The food was good but a little pricey. The WIFI worked well. The park is great for day hikes. We will be back.

There is an outdoor pool and a great recreation area with volleyball and basketball. Also a fire pit for use. Can purchase firewood at the...

My kids and I stayed this past weekend (8/29/15) and loved the visit and Inn. We enjoy the activities that the park provides and I've always enjoyed the Rec Center. The outdoor pool always makes this a summer destination for us, rather than all seasons like some of the other state parks. Room was clean, staff was nice and the...

We love going to Canyon Inn! The rooms are average, but clean. The surroundings are not to be missed. The falls, trails, pool, playgrounds, provide activities for all ages. The dining room has an interesting menu as well as a buffet on the weekend.

We spent the night at The Canyon Inn at McCormicks Creek State Park in Indiana on 8/2/2015. What a major disappointment! The queen room was so small that it could fit only one night stand and the bathroom was so tiny that you had to inch in before closing the door. But the real negative was the food. We had...

I apologize for falling short of your expectations, and our goal of customer satisfaction. One day I hope your will give us the opportunity to regain your trust.

Just got back from a one night stay at McCormick's Creek Canyon Inn, Family trip with three adults (grandparents and mom) and 13 year only grandson. Very nice Inn with a terrific swimming pool and great restaurant (dinner and buffet breakfast). We had a room with two-queens and it was certainly adequate. Second floor (231) Very reasonably priced.

The Inn is comfortable with beautiful lounge area, gift shop and restaurant with amazing window side seating next to suspended bird feeders.

This was a last min.stop during a wine trip that went a bit longer than expected. Its a good value for the money if you modify your expectations and keep in mind this is a state park run property.

“One point to consider--because this is an older property, the hallways are quite narrow, at least on the third floor where we were located.”
