Shawnee is a typical State of Ohio Park. The lodge is old and the common areas were very warm but the pools are very nice and the view is outstanding. They also have a tiki hut type bar out by the pool which was fun although it closed at 9 on a Saturday night and was cash only. We stayed...

Canoed with the grandchildren and kayaked too. The people in charge of this was very helpful. (On certain days of the month its free.) This is a very nice place for a family to spend a weekend or so. The pool is wonderful ! A large outside huge pool with a diving board. There is also an inside pool.

The views from the lodge are beautiful, great place to stay, relax , eat and drink. The rooms are very very clean, well appointed with rustic décor, flat screen tv and balconies. The food in the dining room is very affordable with large portions, although there appears to be a lack of leadership among the servers, the service is still...

Needs more money from the state. Kasich cut everything so "his" bottom line and numbers looks good...of course the State of Ohio is now in the black, Kasich doesn't spend any money; I digress. I could not get the Internet from my room. Annoying. Throughout the years we have stayed there many times, my wife and two girls, now grown....

We stayed one night and couldn't have been treated any better. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Had no trouble booking a room even though it was short notice. The resort needs upgrading inside and out but it was nice.

I always enjoy staying at Shawnee Lodge. There's plenty to do with the family or a nice get-a-way for couples. The restaurants are decent and the staff is always willing to go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable and memorable. We'll definitely be back for more stays.

Enjoyed our three day stay July 11-13. Very nice lodge with nice rooms. Could use a few upgrades as exterior steps and railing are rotting out. Also showers have no grab bars and non slip strips in tubs are worn out.

We stayed here two nights for our anniversary. We liked it a lot but some things could have been a little better. We hiked a couple trails and this was fun. They had both indoor and outdoor pools and they were very popular. I kind of got the feeling that people show up here from the area to just swim....

We love Shawnee Lodge! They offer an abundance of fun for a very low price; the stay for A's program is incredibly generous! We stayed in a cabin this vist. It offered 2 bedrooms, one had a queen bed, the second had 2 sets of bunk beds (the bottom of one was a full bed). There was a full kitchen,...

Very authentic "lodge" hotel with great pool and tiki bar overlooking the lake. There are cabins for rent and a beautiful, clean campground for tent campers. The campground has a movie theatre and putt putt golf for the kiddos. Boat rentals of all kinds are available. Really fun place for a get away!
