I grew up in the area but hadn't visited in over 20 years. I was a little nervous because I didn't know what to expect. What my family experienced exceeded every expectation I had. The facilities were excellent. It is a lodge...in the woods. Be prepared to relax and enjoy a slow paced visit. Considering the rates of other destinations...

We booked our stay at the lodge for something different and a more family friendly experience. With 3-14 year olds this was not smart. I like that the girls could wander freely with plenty to do, but this was definitely more for smaller children. Absolutely everything is at additional cost which is ridiculous considering the regular off-season pricing. The fact...

We booked Salt Fork Lodge for a family weekend getaway in the last week of December. Check-in was fast and friendly. The room was nice with a wonderful view of the lake.

It's a beautiful location and the indoor pool is great, but the cabins need serious work, especially for the price. Ours had dirty dishes, not a single hook to hang anything, and cheapest possible towels, blankets and pillows, the kind you would expect in a $50 a night motel, not a $200 a night 'cottage.' The place feels old and...

GMSFSaltForkLodge, General Manager at Salt Fork Lodge and Conference Center, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to share with us your thoughts. I am obviously disappointed that you were not satisfied with the overnight accommodations. When the cabins were initially constructed, they were quite rustic with limited amenities. The most alluring feature at that time was the location/views of the lake. Over the years we have continued to add features...

It was snowing, def had a lodge feel to it. Oddly it reminded me of the hotel in the movie the shining. It wasn't very crowded, or even close to it.

Great place to escape for a family getaway! Beautiful lodge and surrounding land and lake that are all well maintained. The lodge itself has a rugged rustic appeal. The beach was very clean.
