I love camping and I love campfire cooking, but I don't always like cooking while camping mostly due to the cleanup. The Black Bear restaurant at the lodge at the state park was just what the doctor ordered so that I could have some restful...More

We arrived at 7 pm on a Wednesday evening. Salad bar was almost depleted of its limp-looking lettuce, and the service staff was mostly nowhere to be found. The only food highlight was the grilled trout, tasty and tender. Sides were gluey mashed potatoes and...More

Didn't attempt to use wifi...I just used my regular 4g Verizon connection which is very spotty depending on where you are in the mountains.
