    I grew up driving right past this place my whole life! They have cabins and camping, and the water and woods and green spaces are totally indicative of this area. If you don't have a family piece of l...  more »

    Good fishing but the battery on the boat I rented was dead within 15 minutes. I had to row back from the other end of the lake. The attendant said, "Sorry a lot of the batteries are dead even though they say 100% charged. I will tell my boss again". The cabins are clean and stocked well with dishes, stove, microwave and pots & pans. Take trashbags because they only provide 2 bags. I asked for more from the attendant at the store and she said we don't have anymore you will have to ride into town and buy some from Kroger. Our AC died and we had to leave a day early but the park manager said she will refund one night's stay. The cabin are decent but are overdue for a remodeling. However, the staff is very friendly and courteous. There are a lot of great hiking and biking. The lake is fantastic and well stocked with fish. If you like to fish with minnows, bring some because there are none to be found within 50 miles. All in all we had a great time and will definitely go back again!

    One of my favorite places in the world! I have been visiting Douthat for the past 10 years and loved every visit! there are all kinds of trails for biking and hiking as well as a lake that is great for fishing! If you don't like camping, then the cabins are a wonderful option!

    It's a nice place but it was very cold when I went so I didn't get to do much.

    We stayed in cabin 10 efficiency. In my opinion best location of all their cabins. Sucks that one has to pay $8 per day to fish.

    Nice trails. The cabins were a little small. We were supposed to be in a 6 person cabin, but there was only room for 4 to sleep comfortably. I would definitely go back if there wasn't a better state park only an hour from the house. The kids explorer packs were a neat idea, but they were missing some items.
