Our trip to Hueston Woods State Park in Southwest Ohio for Thanksgiving 2010. My family used to vacation at this state park in the 70's, usually a couple of times a year. We usually camped, but on one occasion we stayed at the Lodge. I told myself that one day I would stay there when I was older since it was such fun as a kid. Fast forward 25 years or so and I finally returned with my wife for a few days. The park and Lodge almost seemed to be frozen in time, much of what I remembered had not changed. While some might say this is a lack of progress, I found it quite enjoyable as a door way to some of the happiest memories of my childhood. The Lodge was warm and comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and the food in the main dining room was fantastic. I think I may have to make this a new annual tradition.
