Park Visitor: Comments, Memories and Reviews
May 22 A Very Caring State Park Staff by Vic Heike Fowler
Wife I wish to Thank The Staff of Robbers Cave for making our stay a Very Memorable one. As Senior Citizens with Physical Limitations, everything from our cabin very Clean Completely Sanitized and having access right to the Front door with our car, Wheelchair access and no steps to climb to the Cabin Door.
Perfect outside area with Fire Pit Ring, nice metal reclining camp chairs and a slot cut into the Picnic Table for a Wheelchair to roll right up to.
The Robbers Cave Staff are truly professional and have the Visitors Welfare Comfort as their primary Mission. An Absolutely Great State Park Staff.
Thank You Robbers Cave Staff, as General MacArthur told the Filipino people, I Shall Return
February 5 by Nancy Hester
I started visiting Robbers cave state park in 1961 when my family moved to the area. In 1980 I returned to the pines with my children and we came every summer for many years. At that time the Sutmillers , friends of my parents, were employed by the state park system. It was a magical time. All these years later I want to come back. Are any of the original cabins still available to rent Thank you for your help.
April 17 Surpassed all Expectations by Cody Gunter
Cabin was excellent, staff was courteous and eager to help, I plan on going back once a year!
February 19 serene and blissfull by Bowl of Chicken
There are so many great trails at the park, all kinds of terrain to explore. My partner and I made a game of it last time we were there with a group, we kept needing to sneak away from everyone to eat some chicken so we decided to see how many new places we could sneak away to when we were eating chicken.
The trails behind the lake are the best for seclusion, as it seems like almost nobody goes back there...which makes it a really great place to sneak off to and eat some chicken.
Lots of fun, never a dull experience!

Great for kids and adults alike. Great activities to keep the kids entertained. A wonderful and caring staff. I have taken my grandchildren there for the last several years. Also great cabins. We will be back in July.
March 25 Nature was great, staff not so much by Rambler
This park is beautiful for sure. Several nice trails to hike. The water is lovely. The cave itself is interesting and fun to explore.
Was not impressed with any of the staff we met. Either hovering or dismisive.
November 14 by old-honeymooners
We went for our first anniversary/honeymoon this last weekend. Beautiful scenery every direction. Rented a cabin, it was great and adequately stocked. Friendly park staff. The stables however were a huge disapointment. We had reservations 3 weeks in advance and called twice including the morning of our scheduled ride to confirm. We had noon rides and turned out we wasted valuable time on Saturday awaiting to ride, only to be stiffed on it. No courtesy call to explain and the gates were locked. We left voice mail on both the pnone numbers given by the stables ads. Two other couples we spoke to had the same experience this weekend. The only thing they will tell you at the park office is that the stables are vendors and not park employees. Hmmm, perhaps they should say bye-bye to them and bring in a new vendor since they advertise so heavily on all the brochures that horse back riding is one of the main attractions/activities.
October 24 Wonderful Place by Spoon the Camp Cook
Just returned with a Girl Scout Troop on our annual 6th grade trip.. It was wonderful. We want to come again..
October 5 Camping at Robbers Cave by Steve
Just returned from our first camping trip at Robbers Cave SP and we loved it. We were able to rent an RV pad with water and electricity and had all the comforts of home. The staff there are very friendly and helpful. Already planning our next trip.

My frist family has gone at least 2 times a year, now i am remarried and have younger step children/grand children and started returning again. Its a great family place! Never have I been disappointed.
February 23 Great Times
I remeber as a little girl going to eat at the resturant there for the first time, I wanted pancakes and everyone kept trying to convince me not to get them. But I had made my mind up! A little later they bring it out, and much to my surprise it was huge and hanging off of the plate! But I was the happiest little girl in there!
We have been taking our horses up there since I was old enough to hold myself up in a saddle and still to this day, after being married and having kids we still go as a family. It is an amazing place, and one that I will never get tired of!

November 9 An absolute gem
Wonderful, pine forested mountains and rugged terrain. Excellent hiking trails. Beautiful little lake with an ideal waterfront. Nice nature center. This is one of the best state parks in the United States. And, to the poster below, it should be noted the cabins now have flat-screen TVs with satellite!

August 2 First Time Experience by Mel
This was our first time at Robbers Cave with our travel trailer. We had a really nice site, though it could have been mowed as some weeds were pretty high. My son got into some poison ivy at the site. The restrooms were not clean and were very hot and muggy.
July 13 Memories for a Lifetime by Dawn
Robbers Cave is our family reunion destination every summer. Over seventy people gather from our family to spend quality time together. For 22 years, Robbers Cave has proven to be an exceptional host, from swimming,paddle-boats, feeding the monster catfish, volleyball, horseshoes, and hiking the magnificent trails, we have a never ending supply of activities. Of course, it always helps when you love the folks you are with!!!
July 8 Cabin & Fun by Sharla
We just stayed in deck cabin #125 and it was very nice. Perfect for our family. Our problem came when it rained a bit everything shut down for the rest of the day. By 3 p.m. the rain had passed but everything was closed. The swimming pool, mini golf, shaved ice, & trail rides. All these employees just went home because of a rain shower. No lighting or thunder........VERY disappointed because of this. Should have kept these things open for the campers. We are looking for a different destination next time.
July 5 First time visitor...
We stayed at the lodge for a family reunion this weekend and had a blast...the lodge was great, but the housekeeping left a little bit to be desired...the toilet was filthy and there was dust on the stainless fixtures in the bathroom...the bed and pillows were horrible...we had to go into town and buy a foam pad and new pillows so we could sleep. At one point a sewer line had backed up or broken and raw sewage was seeping out of the ground and was running toward the lake down by the gift shop...we reported it and never did see anything get done about it...
June 21 campsites/restrooms are neglected by disappointed
Stayed at #29 site with two tents - campsite had poison oak throughout and weeds up to our ankles. Restrooms were filthy when we arrived Fri morning and still had not been cleaned when we left (earlier than planned) on Sat evening.

March 2 My favorite place for a getaway by Judy
There are TVs there now. I was just there two weeks ago and the big flat screen on the wall with satellite TV was great!
September 20 cabins by Jean
The cabin was very nice but if you are taking children or spending a lot of time there keep in mind that there are no more televisions in the cabins. We were there for three days with rain and no tv. We read a lot. Next time we will take cards or board games to keep us busy.
