Water all around, great views, totally quiet. Rooms are a bit dated, so don't expect big city hotel qualities. Do expect great service from the very attentive staff and a wonderful experience in Arkansas!

My husband and I stayed here for my birthday weekend, which also happened to be Eagles, Etc. weekend at the lodge. I can't say enough about this property! The staff, the room, the restaurant, and the grounds are all wonderful! We were blessed to have a full lake view room on the top floor. I will be requesting this room... More

I reviewed the resort/state park separately. This is a review mainly of the restaurant inside the Degray Lake Resort State Park lodge. (That name's a mouthful in itself.) When my wife and I camped in Degray state park (for short) in January 2016, we ate twice in the lodge restaurant, once in the evening for dinner, and the next morning,... More

The park grounds at DeGray are kept beautifully natural. The lake and its islands are a joy to be in, on and around for fishing, boating, eagle watching, hiking, swimming in season and more. The Lodge itself is friendly, comfortable, and well maintained. Staff are professional, courteous, helpful,...and just plain NICE! Thanksgiving lunch at the Lodge was like being at... More

small but clean rooms, views of lake, comfortable bed. Food is awesome at shoreline restaurant. Best part is location, it is amazingly pretty. it was cold, so we didn't do any outdoor activity but there are plenty available: horseback riding, hiking trails, rental bikes etc.

I did not know what to expect when visiting DeGray Lake lodge, as I had no clue what the condition in general of Arkansas state parks were. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the lodge was very nice. The restaurant was great, with spectacular views. The park offers basically every outdoor activity you could think of hoping to... More

I visited DeGray Lake Lodge recently for a business conference and had a great time. The lodge is updated, clean and comfortable. My room was on the third floor with a view of the pool and the beautiful hiking trails. It was roomy and clean with a super comfy bed. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would definitely return...

I attended a wedding recently at this resort and having never visited prior, I was very impressed. The resort is located on a beautiful campus with views from every angle. The wedding party ended up in our room afterward and it wasn't long before we heard knocking from the staff. They had received a few noise complaints as their were... More

Nice, well planned, sites with grills and fire rings. Shaded, level, great views. Bathrooms were clean, well maintained, as were the campgrounds and park. The staff was friendly and helpful, quick to help us out when we woke up to a dead car battery .

This review will be about the campsites instead of the lodge. When I called about reserving a site, the staff was very helpful in making sure we had a site big enough for our camper. The back-in site we stayed in was #57 and it was awesome!! The area for the camper was elevated and had a wood railing around... More
